When I visited Ireland last year, I spent a few days at the Park Hotel Kenmare while sightseeing around the Ring of Kerry (I highly recommend checking out the Wild Atlantic Way – aka the West coast – of Ireland by the way; it’s breathtaking). Built in 1897, the Park Hotel Kenmare is situated on Kenmare Bay with mountain views, tons of scenic walks (or as I like to call them โ€“ โ€œhike litesโ€), a delicious restaurant, and a resident horse :). The hotel itself is tucked away in a quiet and serene location but still centrally located to local sights.ย  Lucky for you, I captured some moments from my brief but memorable stay ๐Ÿ˜‰ :

During a recent visit to the Bay area (hey SF peeps!!), I had the pleasure of visiting Bi-Rite Creamery.ย  Bi-Rite makes their own ice cream, soft serve and bakery goods and features both traditional and unique (and delish!) flavors.ย  Bi-Rite aims for its ice cream flavors to have five ingredients or less – the result of which is pure, simple but intense flavor.ย  The line was out the door when I visited, and I soon found out why!

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to visit EMP Summer House in East Hampton.  EMP is the more casual summer pop-up of Eleven Madison Park, with a relaxed atmosphere and seasonally inspired menu and food.  This is the second year of EMP Summer House โ€“ I visited last year as well and was curious to see how year two compared!

The complimentary transportation to and from was a nice touch: Continue Reading

Ireland: The K Club

Travel

During my roadtrip around Ireland last year, we spent a few days at the K Club in County Kildare.ย  Just about an hour outside of Dublin, the K Club is located on a sprawling property that includes perfectly manicured gardens, an award winning golf course that hosted the Ryder Cup, multiple restaurants, and (though not advertised) a patch of lawn in which I found multiple 4- and 5-leaf clovers ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue Reading
