What To Do In Ireland {Part 3}

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Here’s the final post from our Ireland adventures! In case you missed the first two, here they are:



The Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast. If you visit Dingle, definitely stay here! Mal and I had a gorgeous room and the B & B is just a 10-minute walk from downtown.

The B & B also overlooks the water, so we enjoyed some beautiful views while eating breakfast.

And the owners of the B & B had a really friendly (guard) dog named Lucky, who I became great friends with. (I was having major dog withdrawal at this point in our trip!)

Dingle Peninsula. So, so, so breathtaking. Mal and I stopped so many times to enjoy the views and take photos. The views were incredible.

Connor Pass. Connor Pass is the highest mountain pass in Ireland and provides some seriously amazing views. The road are super narrow and twist and turn non-stop, so it’s pretty freaky at times, but definitely worth it!

Cliffs of Moher. AMAZING!! The Cliffs of Moher were a close second (to Killarney National Park) of my favorite experiences from our trip. I loved them!

Foxy John’s. Bar + hardware store? Obviously, we needed to see what this place was all about.

Mal and I met Dave and Marie in Dingle, so we popped into Foxy John’s before dinner for a drink. After dinner, we ended up going back. Marie and I sat by the fire while the guys sat at the bar and talked to the locals for hours. We ended up shutting down the bar!

Bull’s Head Restaurant. The menu was a mix of Mediterranean and Irish food, which was delicious””all four of us loved what we ordered. I also really liked the atmosphere of this restaurant. It was laid-back and relaxing, but fun at the same time.

The Old Bakehouse Restaurant. Mal and I totally lucked out with this place. We were driving from Dingle to the Cliffs of Moher, which is kind of a long drive, so we ended up getting really hungry for lunch. We drove through Miltown Malbay in County Clare (on N67) and randomly stopped at The Old Bakehouse. The menu was awesome””tapas, wine, desserts, and all locally-sourced.

The Townhouse Bar. Mal and I both really loved this place. It had outdoor seating, a great beer and cider selection, and delicious bar food. It was a great place to hang out after a long day of driving.

The Galway Roast. Mal and I got lattes here one morning and they were absolutely delicious!

I hope you enjoyed reading about our Ireland adventures!



      1. @Tina: haha I think that guard rail has become kind of a joke for tourists. look at me I’m so cool I did something I shouldn’t have 😀

  1. Holy moly that B&B in Dingle is so cute! The view look amazing! I am so jealous! I visited a couple places in Ireland a few years ago on a cruise, but never got to see the cliffs. Perhaps a new trip should be in the works! Hope Lucky was able to fulfill your doggie withdrawal 🙂

  2. You got a sunny time in Galway!!! Delighted to hear you fitted so much in and found some good places to eat! Love the random quirky pubs in Ireland, they still manage to surprise me!

  3. Wow! Gorgeous pics, you guys had an excellent day for the Cliffs of Moher! We went to Dingle & stayed in a country home a few years back, it was excellent. Thanks for sharing your vacation & recommendations!

  4. What a great trip! It looks like you had good weather too? This makes me so excited to plan a trip! Did you feel like you had enough time to see everything you wanted to in a week? Thanks for all of your tips!

    1. Not even close! We felt like we were pretty rushed and didn’t have as much time as we’d like to explore the various towns we visited. If we were to do it again, we would have planned two nights in each town or made fewer stops. I guess you could say we were a bit over-ambitious with our plans!

  5. All your pictures are gorgeous! Loved all the recaps too-really makes me want to go there! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing, this is definitely a dream trip for me! It’s so gorgeous and I’m kind of a chicken with the language barrier, so Ireland seems like a good foray into European vacations. 🙂 Love all the pictures and recommendations!

  7. Wow! Ireland is so beautiful! My older brother got to go there and he said the green grass out there seems like “green in HD”. Glad you are enjoying all the sights from the cliffs 🙂

  8. For someone who lives very close to Ireland (England) I’ve never actually been. I hear it’s beautiful, and your photos suggest it is.

    Sounds like you had a great time over there!

  9. Really glad you had a nice time here. You’ve probably seen more of the country than this resident ;-). BTW – have you been photoshopping in blue skies and sunshine? I have a long-running joke with friends about the rain (and misery) in Galway. Your photos of sunshine are not helping my case!!

  10. I think you’ve inspired me to make a trip to Ireland with my wife sometime. But first, we have a kid due in November, so it might be a while!!

    I’m curious though, you posted about a burpee challenge your box had going on for April. To complete the challenge, each person had to average 90 burpees a day. Did you do any while in Ireland?

    You’ve inspired me to do my own 90 burpees/day challenge and so far so good, so just wondering how you were coming along too!

    1. Our box stopped after about a week because there were so many overuse injuries, so I stopped too. I did 700 Burpees in a week though!

      1. @Tina:
        Well crap, I’ve been doing them religiously this whole month!

        I’m at 2,566 right now and really just need to get my 2,700 before Sunday. I’ll be running the Oklahom City Memorial Marathon and don’t think I’ll be in the mood for burpees the rest of the month.

        Hope the injuries weren’t too serious for those at your box, and 700 in a week is still damn good!

  11. Wow you guys got some really great pictures on your trips at all beautiful sights! I have yet to make it to Ireland, but the natural landscapes and down-to-earth locals make it seem like on of the best destinations to make sure I make it to one day.

  12. Great Photos. I have had many a trip to Ireland playing rugby and there are many tremendous walks on the Emerald Isle……..and of course there is always the Black stuff to quench your thirst!
