Review: Rhu Glenn Hotel, Waterford

Down in County Kilkenny in the south of Ireland sits the small, good value and good quality three star Rhu Glenn country club hotel, just outside the town of Waterford.

With 31 en-suite rooms, we found the hotel quiet, comfortable and welcoming.

Irish Tour Day 2

Day two of our Irish visit started with a heavy frost, and a hearty breakfast from our host.  I must admit, we haven’t stayed in bed and breakfasts since our courting days, and was a little sceptical about going B&B rather than hotels, but Joe convinced me and he was proven right.

NYNY. So good we’d stay there twice…

Coming soon: Return to Paradise

It’s been nearly two years but I’ve been hoping to return to Paradise Lake Lodges and have another go at the huge carp in the lake, so here we are again, this time in a bigger lodge with hot tub and with my brother, sister in law and mother in tow. And obviously Sue of course! The site is under new management so stay tuned to see how they compare with our last stay which you can read about here.

Oops – So unorganised!

Just pointing one of my friends to our travel blog and I thought – it’s been so long that I can’t actually remember the website address!  So I went to check it and then thought “Where’s the link to my Ireland video?” – I haven’t put it up yet!  No wonder nobody has viewed the video!

So, many apologies, here it is – our first trip to Ireland – but definitely not our last.

Sue’s Vegas Birthday Surprise!

Oops!   I’m so busy making videos that I forgot to post the link to our video on our website.   This is the first part of our surprise trip to Vegas – well, it wasn’t a surprise to me of course, but it certainly was for Sue – we hope you enjoy and keep watching out for part two appearing soon.
