My Secret Ireland



Sure where, etc.

Ger writes:

Hi, I recently set up a website where I plan to find the best hidden gems in Ireland. Is there any chance you could share it with your readers to see if they have any tips. It’s only recently set up and is not done so to make money but to share what our island has to offer…


Also: Name that gem above anyone?

      Yup. Got a spot of vertigo last year when I did the hike up that there hill. Worth it!

      Including Pedlar’s Lake – to be found when you climb on the rocks at the little lay-by about half through the Pass.

    I’ve one, the island in Dublin Bay with the wild wallaby population. Except no one can visit it because it is “owned” by the Baring banking family. Think it’s called Lambay Island.

      Also, wallabies will kill you as soon as look at you.

      Jesus Jambon get your facts straight. You can visit it, you just need to arrange permission beforehands.

      You need to arrange permission because its owned by someone, you know, its private property.

        You must have a radar for comments critical of landed gentry, excessively rich, exploitative types.

        Are you their little champion, their obedient Uncle Tom?

          Riding roughshod over property rights – the wellspring of our common law – is Job #1 for the Trots

    Dunno where it is but it’s nice. Would love to head down there with a bag of cans, a ghetto blaster, and a disposable barbeque.

    If you’re looking for a gem
    To show Ireland at its best
    Divil a place you’ll find finer
    Than the lovely Cabra West

    Amazing how ignorant you all are of your geography. Your own country.

    Did your parents all cart you off to Spain to spend two weeks on a crowded beach with your next door neighbours from home instead of exploring this beautiful Island?

      amazing, share with us your knowledge tish.your magnificent holidays in the bog of allen throwing turf at your siblings or those idyllic days of yesteryear, or even yesterday, wanking silently at your keyboard

    I know a hidden gem.
    It’s a gem because it’s hidden, and not well-known, so fcek off I’m not tellin ya!

    It’s Lough Tay. It’s a gem alright, but it’s not hidden. It’s the most striking feature off the Sally Gap to Roundwood road.

    hidden gem? lough tay is well known. but i really like the idea for the site. i know loads of lovely little hidden gems near me. you wouldnt expect to find them in kildare, coz kildare is generally a bit boring and smelly, but yes there are hidden gems, would love to see others from around the country.
