Sweet Isle Of Mine

Exploring Ireland’s Wild & Wonderful West!

Ireland is a truly wonderful country, and we believe the regions on the west coast of the isle are the most beautiful and culturally rich. These factors make for an excellent holiday and you’ll be left with impressions and memories to last a lifetime.

That’s why we are dedicating our site to showcasing exactly what these regions have to offer, from a local Irishman’s perspective.

Follow me on my journey around the Emerald Isle as I share my tips, both as someone who grew up in the west, and also as a tour organizer and guide who has brought countless guests to the country.
