Afternoon Tea at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa

We have just launch ’10 Days of Giveaways’ over on our Instagram today. Over the next 10 days, we are going to be featuring a wonderful experience every single day from a beautiful place in Ireland. We are going to be chatting all about the experience and what they offer and the idea behind it is that you get to see lots of wonderful places to explore on your doorstep.


Halloween with Hastings Hotels

Halloween is just around the corner. It’s time to start researching some spooky ideas for the Halloween break. We were very excited to hear today that Hastings Hotels has launched a selection of spooky stayovers and themed afternoon teas to help ensure lots of fun for the family this Halloween.


Our Top Hikes/Walks In Dublin

As we go through these tough times, we need to look after each other. Dublin has entered level 3 so here at OnTheQT we decided to share some outdoor walks you can do in the fresh air in Dublin while staying a safe distance from others. Your mental health is very important and fresh air will help clear your head during these times. Below are a list of some of our favourite walks in Dublin. Always be mindful if you think a place looks busy, avoid going for your walk in that area. Go for your walk in a different spot. Dublin is full of beautiful places to walk and enjoy so you are spoilt for choice.



I don’t know about you but I used to love painting along on The Den on RTÉ with Don Conroy. My favourite time of the day was Draw with Don on The Den. Anybody else remember those happy times from their childhood? Over lockdown, Don’s YouTube channel took off and many people rekindled their love for art and drawing. Now you can draw live as The Lodge at Ashford have launched a painting workshop with the talented Don Conroy. I love when you can mix a hobby you love with a staycation. It makes for a fantastic break away.


The Muckross Lake Loop

We love Killarney with all the activities it offers – kayaking, swimming, mountain climbing, hiking, cycling and walking to name a few. We would highly recommend the Muckross Lake loop. We parked at Muckross House and started the walk by the lake. There are signposts for the lake walk near Muckross House. This walk takes about 2 hours to complete and is approximately 10km in length. It brings you around the picturesque Muckross lake and you can admire the views all along the way! (more…)

Cork’s hottest summer spot ‘The Montenotte’

Here at OnTheQT, we are excited to give you a look at the new botanical Panorama Terrace at The Montenotte. It is set to be Cork’s hottest summer spot for al fresco fun! We also want to congratulate The Montenotte as they were awarded as Best Boutique Hotel by the Irish Hotel Awards last week.


The Wild Atlantic Way

Sometimes the places on our doorstep are as beautiful as the places we travel abroad to explore. Did you know that the Wild Atlantic Way is the longest coastal tourism route in the world? It is waiting for you to explore it. The Wild Atlantic Way is a road trip on many people’s travel bucket list when they visit Ireland so I think it is time we started to appreciate the beauty that lies on our doorstep.
