Hello, and welcome to Travel Pennies, the blog where I blather on relentlessly about travel, food, life and occasionally Alan Rickman.
I'm a freelance travel writer based in the beautiful west of Ireland. I'm on the road a lot (an obvious hazard of the trade) so use this blog to tell you all about the places I see. You'll find hotel reviews, city guides, travel tips and recipes, as well as plenty of pictures and the odd video.
I'm an award-winning travel writer, who has written for the Irish Independent, Condé Nast Traveler, the Guardian, Lonely Planet and more. This blog was voted the Best Travel Blog in the IMAGE Blog Awards.
