When I was home in Galway last month, my big sister planned the most amazing early surprise for me – a spa trip to Dromoland Castle in Co. Clare. I have always loved Dromoland castle as we used to take family holidays in a hotel right beside the castle from a young age. I’ve had afternoon tea & lunch at Dromoland Castle previously, however the spa was an EXTRA experience. Dromoland Castle is a 5 star luxury castle surrounded by 450 acres of golf course and the most stunning green rolling landscape for exploring.

One Monday evening after work recently, I was transported to a pink, sugary, joyful world at the Museum of Ice Cream in San Francisco. In short, the museum is a display of the prettiest, happiest, colorful, cutest little rooms. Treats are served up in most rooms and one is as tasty as the other.

Today on Black Friday, instead of running around the shops or nabbing the best deals online, I relaxed and took a break with my family touring Muir Woods, Napa Valley & Sonoma with Extranomical Tours. What a fabulous Friday! The tour allows time to be spent exploring the giant redwoods in Muir Woods before being whisked off to three different wineries.
Hawaii has been on my bucket list for years. From Ireland, it is a trek and a half so as I’m in San Francisco, I had to visit. My first visit to the Islands (of many future visits) was to Oahu.
