The Gearagh is a submerged glacial woodland and nature reserve, five kilometres, south-west of Macroom. Meaning, the wooded river in Irish, it is watery space often compared to the Everglades in Florida: an intermesh of channels, densely vegetated islets, waterways and wild marshlands, all brimming with flora and fauna. I got some atmospheric field recordings with @vickylangan
Detours to the coast have -so far- always paid off on our tours through #Ireland . On the way from Cork to Killarney we spent a whole day stopping by different spots along the coast that were far off the main route. Great weather and landscapes rewarded us with unforgettable vistas.

We never need an excuse to make a whiskey sour, but #NationalWhiskeySourDay needs to be celebrated!
2 oz. West Cork Bourbon Cask Irish Whiskey
1 oz. Lemon Juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Place whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white in a cocktail shaker. Dry shake the cocktail for 10 seconds. Shake again with ice to chill. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and enjoy!
Alright so here’s a picture of me in front of a mansion 😂😂😂 Have you been to Blarney before?
To be more precise this is a “Scottish Baronial mansion” in County Cork known as the Blarney House. Discover Ireland describes its wonderful setting better than me, so I’ll leave this here:
The house is set in hectares of parkland filled with rare and unusual trees including many maples, southern beech and giant western red cedars. There are formal gardens around the house with manicured lawns, rose beds and mixed shrub beds. There is a fern garden with the atmosphere of a tropical jungle to be found deep in the woods. The Poison Garden, adjacent to the battlements, contains an interesting and educational collection of deadly and dangerous plants from around the world l, including caged specimens of deadly nightshade, wolfsbane and poison ivy.
