The fruity flavor often appeals to non-beer drinkers and the drink is particularly popular in summertime in Ireland. Bulmers Cider (called Magners outside of Ireland) is the...

Savoring Handmade Chocolates Just Off Ireland’s Ring of Kerry

Heading around the Ring of Kerry and want a diversion? Especially one that is delicious? Might I recommend the Skelligs Chocolate Company… We headed on a slight detour off the main Ring of Kerry route onto the Ring of Skellig.
