Random Fact About Me: I am right-handed but left-footed

I moved to Boston in 2011 and started working at Crystal Travel a year later after spending my life on a farm in the west of Ireland.

Having grown up thirty miles from Galway city and attended university there, it is my favorite place in the country but I also really love Westport and Kenmare. They each share a certain, indefinable charm. Having recently spent a few nights in Kilkenny, I get the allure between the castle, Medieval Mile, Smithwick's Experience and it's many lively pubs and restaurants.

When I was young, our family used to take vacations around Ireland and I wished I could see other countries like all my friends. Now I tour the country by choice every time I go home. 

Outside of Ireland and Britain, I really like the south of Spain with its laid back lifestyle and sandy beaches, and Kampala, Uganda for its feeling of progression and "joie de vivre".

Traveling is, like many other things, something I do not get to do enough of but it is a great way to immerse yourself in different cultures, ways of life and try new foods. It also gives you a better grasp of the world around you.

To many Game of Thrones fans, Westeros is a real place.

To the people of Northern Ireland, it is home.

Northern Ireland is the principle location for filming of this hit HBO series.
