I mentioned in yesterday’s post that my boyfriend and I went on a little road trip to Bantry on Friday. It was very spur of the moment and we literally just booked it two days before, but isn’t it always the random trips that are the best? On the way there we stopped at a pancake house called, The Strawberry Field, which is just about 30 minutes from Killarney and is a real little gem! My sister had been there a few weeks back and hasn’t stopped talking about it since, so I was so glad to finally see it for myself. If you follow me on Instagram (@retroflame) you might have noticed that I have a slight obsession with pancakes/crepes so this little restaurant was like heaven to me! The menu seemed to go on forever, but in the end I went for one with hazelnut praline (tasted like Kinder Beuno) and vanilla ice-cream.
Friday was a really beautiful day here in Ireland so the drive to Bantry was such a treat. I think that when you’re from Ireland, you sometimes forget that it’s actually a pretty nice place with genuinely breath-taking views. So this trip definitely reminded me that maybe living here isn’t that bad after all (when the weather’s good that is). In Bantry, we stayed in a hotel called, The Maritime, which was honestly one of the nicest hotels I’ve stayed in in a long long time! The decor, the service, the food (we got breakfast in bed on Saturday -such a treat) and the views left me wishing I was able to stay for longer! I’ll definitely be returning very soon.
Until then though, it’s back to reality and back to study. I’m currently in my final year of Commerce (Business) and exam season is just around the corner. So the blog might be a little quieter than usual for the next few weeks, but I’ll be sure to make up for it once they’re over and it’s time to go to NYC!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend too!
