    Just back from West Cork. Did a spot off whale watching and the rings of both peninsulas. Stunning part of the country

    Looks like we got out and back just in time.

    Booked Santorini for the end of May with Ryanair. €150 return for 2 before the extras, the value is unreal, missus has always wanted to go and prices were 5 or 6 times that and they included stop overs. I could pick up a decent hotel for less than the flights would have cost before Ryanair opened a route there.

    I just realised I posted less than 3 months ago I had planned on staying at home next year to avoid stress of cancellation etc. Amazing what an Irish November can do to you.

    We've put off booking this year, I genuinely don't think travel abroad will open up enough by the summer. Unless they get the finger out massively with the vaccines!

    Yeah we are just going to book a few weeks around Ireland during the summer.

    Booked a few houses already. Some great value to be had at the moment

    I spent a week in Dingle this year that turned into almost two weeks and it was an absolutely fantastic holiday, I did not feel short changed at all and I'm usually big into getting some sun. Don't think of it as a hindrance that you can't go abroad, think of it as an opportunity to explore some more of Ireland.
