About Me

I’m Niamh, welcome to the Exploring Ireland Blog!

I started the Exploring Ireland Instagram account a few years back, when I was ill due to severe chronic migraines. I was house bound for a year with a combination of vertigo and right sided paralysis. At the time it was an outlet for me to share my old holiday pictures and keep the cabin fever at bay.

Since then, the page has enabled me to bring together my passions for travel, wellness and sustainability,

I’ve holidayed in Ireland for the last number of years partly out of necessity for health reasons and as a way of living more sustainably. Ireland is one of the greatest places on the planet, especially when the sun shines! There are so many hidden gems on our doorstep which most people never take the time to explore.

We should spend more time visiting these amazing locations rather than causing more damage to our beautiful planet by taking multiple flights a year.

On this blog I will be sharing my appreciation for this gorgeous country of ours and the people in it. How to travel in a sustainable manner — I won’t be preachy, don’t worry! And maybe a little on my recovery. Whether it’s travel, health or sustainability, it’s all about small steps in the right direction.

I hope you enjoy my content and if you have any questions at all, just give me a shout!
