Ireland: Off The Beaten Track

There’s no place like home and I feel very lucky to call Ireland home. Ireland is full of exquisite landscapes, charming scenery and friendly people but one of my favourite things to do is hop in a car, go away from the main motorways and explore off the beaten track. In this post, I am delighted to team up with Chill Insurance to share with you some of my favourite gems to explore in Ireland:

My Favourite Spot in Ireland

As you all know, my favourite place in the world is Ardmore in Co. Waterford. I decided to share my favourite things to do in Ardmore with you all. The sun was shining this weekend so I grabbed my camera and went out to my favourite spots around Ardmore to take scenic photographs. I also recently got lots of new outdoor gear from Regatta Ireland so I decided to make a little video of my favourite place in the world, while also showing you some of my cool new pieces from Regatta Ireland. I am not a fashion blogger in any means but I love when clothes just fit into my adventures and are comfortable for exploring and for me, Regatta ticks all the boxes. I decided to show you the clothes but in an ‘OnTheQT’ style… with a video! Nothing beats seeing the clothes on adventures and testing out if they are actually practical for hiking, walking and even running.  (more…)
