Support Small Business

Introduction

One note we have taken away from this pandemic has been to appreciate what we have right on our doorsteps and support small business all over the country.

The wanderlust to travel far and see all corners of the globe has and will never change but there is something that has been really therapeutic about getting to know our own surroundings.

Personally we have all suffered but as we enter a stage where maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We say it’s time to get things rolling again.

Support Small Business Drive

Local, small independent businesses have suffered massively and the recovery is not an overnight fix its going to be a hard slog to get back to normal. We have taken it upon ourselves to step out and lend a hand with our very own new section Support Small Business. We aim to highlight the best of all small businesses and bring them to the forefront.

It’s become evermore important to look for local and support small business in all local communities. It could be buying gift, an outfit, a tour of some sort – it doesn’t matter, your local business needs that boost.

Our Vision For Support Small Business

In this series with interview small businesses, find out what they are about, what they do and what they offer. We will try and get in depth and find out not only about the the businesses, but the people behind them and how it’s been like and how they go forward.

We are going back over past trips and look at local businesses we have used and reconnecting to bring this series.

So stay tuned for new announcements our first business is coming soon and we cant wait to share these with you.

Staycation Has Been Great

Staycation

Staycation what’s this ?? Stay local they say! We are avid travelers who have travelled around the globe, with a list of countries growing well past 20. We love to get out and see different cultures and different ways of life and we really do immerse ourselves in what these cultures have to offer.

Now with what has been going on in the world we have been restricted to our own country Ireland. So we said to ourselves we are not going to sit around and we started researching, we could never of actually imagined what was already on our doorstep.

You really do take for granted what we have ourselves. We have already seen Waterfalls amazing beaches, forests, Walks, Little villages and our list of things to do is ever growing

Our Plan

Our list of visits have been

  • Glencar Waterfalss
  • Lough Rynn
  • Killala Bay
  • Eniscrone
  • Strandhill
  • Kilronan Castle
  • Strokestown House

We are planning over the coming months to do

  • Cliffs of Moher
  • Fowley’s Falls
  • Achill Island
  • Bunraty Castle
  • Ring Of Kerry

We encourage any traveler out there to really look hard and find something that’s close and get out and see what’s on your doorstep you might be surprised. And also get out and support those local businesses who have struggled through this time.

Check out Airbnb sites for local stays there are some fantastic deals out there and some beautiful places to stay. I was only looking the other day and the cottages available were unreal.

Have you been on staycation locally? Tells us what you have done and maybe we can all pick some tips up.

Here is a few photos from our latest travels

For now that’s it, thanks for stopping by
