Welcome to the Irish Fireside.
We created this site for anyone dreaming about a trip to Ireland. So sit back, relax and explore as we share our insight into the Emerald Isle’s most popular destinations as well as get off the tourist trail and experience the “real” Ireland.
Here, you will find links and resources that support the topics covered in our podcasts… Irish travel, culture and items of interest to the Irish diaspora. If you are not familiar with podcasts, think of them as Internet-based radio shows you can listen to on your computer, iPod or MP3 Player.
The Irish Fireside Podcast consistently ranks among iTunes TOP 100 Travel Podcasts, was nominated in 2010 for Best Podcast by the Irish Web Awards, for Best Travel Podcast at www.PodcastAwards.com in 2008 and 2009 and endorsed by the Indie Travel Podcast. The blog has been recognized by Lonely Planet, Go Overseas and was nominated for two 2010 Irish Blog Awards.
In January 2009, Irish Firesiders Liam & Corey headed out on the Irish-American Roadtrip. This 40-day journey from Milwaukee to Los Angeles sought out Irish-American stories along the way. To follow the adventure, watch the videos, visit the photo albums or read the TravelBlog archives (they will appear most recent first).
