Enjoyed the lovely view while having lunch at Fallon and Byrne (People’s Park)..
A couple of weeks ago, we went to Dun Laoghaire for a quick family day out on a long weekend. Back then, we hoped that it was our last long weekend in Ireland. But it wasn’t. Nevertheless, it was great for us to experience the lovely seaside views in Dun Laoghaire during the last few summer days of 2017 – for sure!

I still think about Seoul. So, let me share the best experiences I’ve had while in there!
Our recent trip to Seoul went by so fast – I wish I could easily go back again! Time flies when you’re having fun – as they say, right?
We spent about 2 weeks in Seoul but I still feel as if I haven’t been around much. Probably because we encountered a couple of challenges traveling with a toddler (you can read a related post here) around Seoul. So, we had to change plans sometimes!

Included in our Christmas package at Powerscourt is a Christmas eve dinner at Sika Restaurant
During our stay at Powerscourt Hotel last Christmas, it included a pre-booked Christmas Eve dinner at the hotel’s restaurant named Sika. When I was writing my Powerscourt-related posts (you could read about our Christmas Package special here and here), I thought that the Christmas Eve dinner experience deserved its own post. So, here it goes..

After the sumptuous Christmas Eve meal at the Sika restaurant in Powerscourt Hotel..
After our fantastic Christmas Eve meal at the Sika restaurant (that I haven’t written a review yet, whoops!), we were so excited about our Mountainview Suite and looked forward to our evening of rest. We didn’t book for any babysitting arrangements and decided to stay inside our hotel room to relax after a short tour of the hotel.

Our Christmas getaway at the Powerscourt Hotel and strolling at the Estate..
We didn’t travel internationally for this year’s Christmas. Instead, we had a staycation at one of the best hotels in Ireland – Powerscourt Hotel. The hotel is situated within very close proximity to one of Ireland’s leading tourist attractions – Powerscourt Estate.
I have been to the Estate on my first year in Ireland but this is the first time for me to stay in the hotel. So, I was really looking forward to Christmas since the hotel is operated by no less than Marriott! 🙂

So, this is what we experienced in our AirBnb accommodation in Galway
Disclaimer: All opinions are my own and from my personal experience with the AirBnb accommodation/owner. I will also not indicate the name of the owner, even if I knew her first name.
On our long weekend trip to Galway, we used AirBnb for our accommodation. I think it was literally a week before the trip that we decided to finally proceed. And if we were to consider booking a hotel for that trip, we can bet that the price would be quite steep, especially as we have to book separate rooms to accommodate us and my friend.
For that trip, we booked a 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom/toilet penthouse apartment. There was another 2-bedroom apartment located at the city center we considered that has Wi-Fi but only had one bathroom. We thought that even if we had to pay more in this penthouse apartment and without Wi-Fi, at least we have the convenience of having two bathrooms.

On the second day in Galway, we went to the Galway Seafood and Oyster Festival
We only stayed in Galway for the long weekend so we had to make the most of our last day to roam around. On our first day, we took a leisure stroll around the city center and visited a number of attractions around. And in case you missed it, you can read my entry here.
The next day, we woke up to a really gloomy weather. I even checked my weather app to see if things will get better. But to my disappointment, that day was expected to receive showers and gray clouds. That didn’t stop us from stepping out, though. We just prepared ourselves by wearing the appropriate outdoor gear to protect us from the rain! Continue reading “Galway and the Oyster Festival” »
