Things to do & see in the Corrèze (Dordogne Valley)

My trip to France in June seems like such a distant memory, but as I was going through the pictures of my French holidays I thought I'd do a little round up of some great things to see and do when traveling around the Corrèze department/Dordogne Valley. If only there were direct flights from Ireland I'd definitely go more often... For now I just have to be patient until next year.

The Legal Eagle, Dublin 7

While the food scene has really improved in Dublin, the city still lacks pubs with great food. In terms of gastropubs, there's L. Mulligan Grocer and then quite frankly I can't think of anywhere else. Well thankfully another great option has arrived; the Legal Eagle.

Sleeping in a Fairytale Tree House

My parents live in a beautiful remote part of France (the Dordogne Valley) where I love escaping to once a year. As I visit them very rarely I tend not to do much sightseeing over there and just spend quality time with them, also known as eating and drinking.

Love Supreme, Portobello, Dublin 8

I have to confess, each time I walk around Portobello I get such a feeling of house envy, especially along the canal. It seems like a nice neighbourhood to live in and there are some lovely food options like the ever popular Bibi's café or the lovely restaurant Locks.

Staycation in Donegal & the Wild Atlantic Way

Last year when I told people I was going to Donegal for my honeymoon, they kind of laughed at me thinking it wasn't 'very exotic'. Having travelled extensively in our 20s the only thing Mr. FFID and I wanted to do was spend time together in our favourite place in the world: Ireland.

5 Years of Blogging

Bonjour! It's been a while, hey? I took what felt like a very long blogging break (my longest ever) and my blogiversary reminded me that it was time to get back to this little space.

I'm celebrating five years of FFID today. I read somewhere that most blogs are abandoned after 3 months so it feels like it's an achievement that FFID has lasted this long.
