My 6-day Paddywagon Tour of all Ireland was the most fun tour I’ve ever done so far and for such a great and affordable deal. We took a Black Taxi Tour of Belfast, visited the Giant’s Causeway, did a walking tour of Derry, stood on the Cliffs of Moher, kissed the Blarney Stone, drove along the [...]

Whoever said Dublin isn’t the best place to celebrate St.Patrick’s Day certainly wasn’t doing it right. here are some festivals and celebrations you should go to at least once in your life; Oktoberfest in Munich, Carnival in Rio, Hogmanay in Edinburgh, La Tomatina in Spain, Burning Man in Nevada… …and St.Patrick’s Day in Ireland. St.Patrick’s [...]
Guinness seems to be a bit like Marmite…people love it or hate it. I can proudly say I’m one of the former. I LOVE Guinness and will happily drink it instead of an ordinary beer! The meal in a glass has that perfect consistency for me- not too fizzy, and it has a nice creamy [...]
The most famous attraction in Dingle Town is Fungie the dolphin, which is a surprisingly odd name for a dolphin don’t you think? Sounds like a mushroom. But this fully grown male bottlenose dolphin, which is rather large at 4 metres long, has been hanging around Dingle Harbour since 1984 and visitors can take boat [...]
I love Ireland. In most places, if it was grey and rainy, I would be less than impressed. But somehow Ireland gets away with dodgy weather. It’s almost a requirement that it’s cloudy in Ireland, and the landscape still looks beautiful and poetic. For the Slea Head drive, however, the sunshine decided to make a brief appearance. [...]
This is a video of me kissing the Blarney Stone on my Paddywagon tour of Ireland. By kissing the stone you are supposed to get the gift of the gab, although I’m a bit sceptical about the results of this one! Before we went to the Blarney Stone, I envisaged just kissing some boulder on [...]
The Cliffs of Moher are one of the most famous tourist sights in Ireland, so naturally Paddywagon took us to see them. Before we disembarked the bright green tour bus, our guide, Mark, warned us: The Cliffs are 214 metres high at the tallest point, and cover 8km of coastline on the West Coast of [...]
After a day exploring The Giant’s Causeway and crossing the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge in Antrim on our Paddywagon adventure, we settled in our hostel in Derry for the night. Part of the Paddy’s Palace family, the Derry hostel has a really homely feel with big leather armchairs and a cosy dining room, so it was [...]
On day two of my Paddywagon Tour of Ireland we visited The Giant’s Causeway. The Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located on the North Coast of Ireland near Bushmills. It’s pretty incredible- a collection of around 40,000 Basalt rocks, mostly in hexagonal shapes, although some are tall columns. Geologists say it was [...]
Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
