    Ireland - Easter

    Largely a Roman Catholic holiday in Ireland, Easter is the second largest festival – after Christmas – on the church calendar. A few years ago, Tenon Tours published a blog about traditional Easter in Ireland. I wondered if the traditions of Easter still held today, so I asked a few friends that I have met […]

    Bunratty Castle, county clare, Ireland

    If your Ireland vacation takes you to the west, it’s likely you’ll be stopping at the most visited natural attraction in the country – the Cliffs of Moher. If the weather is fine, you might even opt for a Cliffs of Moher cruise. (I highly recommend it!) But then what? Don’t go rushing off to […]

    Titanic II

    Iceberg…, straight ahead! It looks like the Titanic. It is supposed to feel like the Titanic. However, Australian billionaire, Clive Palmer, said his dream project won’t sink like the Titanic. Palmer recently unveiled plans for Titanic II. His blueprints are an exact replica of that ill-fated 1912 cruise liner. Like the original, plans for Titanic […]

    Breweries in England

    Visiting breweries is one of my favorite things to do in Boston. It’s a great tourist activity for friends that are visiting, especially seeing the two big ones: Samuel Adams and Harpoon. Visiting a brewery usually consists of a tour, learning about the process, the beers, and then comes the best part… the tasting! When visiting […]

    Conwy Castle, Wales, Castle Capital of the World

    Castles, castles, which country has the most castles? You’ll likely be surprised at the answer. Wales, that smidgen of land on the western edge of England, has more castles than any other country in Europe! Total castle numbers vary from over 500 to 641, depending on who you talk with, but either way, you won’t […]

    Ask most visitors to name Ireland’s first established city and most will answer “Dublin” without blinking an eye. And though Dublin is an old city – founded in 988 – it is 74 years younger than Ireland’s oldest city. Located in the south-eastern part of the country, the majority of people touring Ireland bypass the […]

    It’s not marked on any map. And if you ask about it, you’re likely to receive a blank stare. Yet most visitors touring Ireland drive through the Ballyhoura Region to reach the ‘Sunny Southwest,’ barely glancing out the window in their rush to reach the next stop on their itinerary. Stretching from just south of Limerick […]
