    By Expedia on 17th October 2016
    Dublin with its gothic monuments, its dark alleyways, its churchyards and its storytelling tradition, offers the perfect backdrop to celebrate Halloween. The contemporary holiday finds its roots in the Gaelic harvest festival Samhain, so it’s no surprise that there’s an abundance of ghost stories and urban myths to be found in the Irish capital.

  • A Lesson in Latte Art at Dublin’s Coffee and Tea Festival

    By Expedia on 18th September 2015
    Doodles of the sunrise over Alfama, scrawled sketches of the Eiffel Tower… my Travel Edits notebooks are filled with scraps of paper and half-finished drawings scribbled onto the back of old airline tickets.

    By Expedia on 17th August 2015
    By Susan FitzGerald of Vibrant Ireland You may have heard the nicknames — Galway: the cultural heart of Ireland, Galway: Ireland’s cloudiest city. But are they true? Certainly the organisers of the annual Galway Arts Festival find truth in both; in fact, famous cloudspotter Gavin Pretor-Pinny was part of their imaginative and eclectic programme this year.
