Give the gift of travel this Christmas with Fahy Travel and Corrib Travel

Thu, Nov 14, 2019

It is that time of year again. The Christmas season is fast approaching and with only 40 days left before the big day, the last few weeks are usually spent dashing around shops, making lists (and checking them twice), making a mess wrapping gifts, buying the most ridiculous Christmas jumpers and, most importantly, enjoying some well-deserved time off. Buying the perfect gift can be stressful, to say the least, with phones, gift vouchers, and laptops grazing the top of the list. But what do you buy someone who has everything, or someone who is not interested in the latest gadgets and gizmos? The travel specialists at 2 Bridge Street know just the thing.

Loved by locals and visitors alike

Wed, Nov 06, 2019

Every time I pass through Salthill I am reminded how beautiful the promenade is, and what a facility we have on our doorstep, for those of us fortunate enough to live in the Galway area. My instinct is always to stop the car, get out and walk. ‘We should do this more often’ is invariably the reaction from family members. And so we should. A self catering stay at the Galway Bay Sea View Apartments in Salthill is now available for as little as €199 in total for a three night break for four people. With 34 large sized apartments, the venue offers an ideal break for families, couples and groups of friends.

Dallas and Fort Worth — sightseeing, shopping, and savouring the Texas lifestyle

Thu, Oct 31, 2019

Have you ever thought of exploring Dallas? It would not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking of an American holiday, however as Fahy Travel travel specialist Caroline O’Toole found out recently, it really should be.

Dallas has many unique escapes for any traveller, the first being the really beautiful Wildcatter Ranch and Resort, a four-star property located a two-hour drive outside Dallas and only 90 minutes from DFW international Airport. The property boasts a 25-mile horse riding trail, guided activities with local Texas cowboys where you will experience the most stunning sights. These include clay shooting, tomahawk throwing, historical Jeep tours, archery, and a new shooting range. If rest and relaxation is what you crave, then the infinity-edged pool and hot tub or a therapeutic massage is also an option.

Treat yourself to an Atlantic break at the Cliffs of Moher Hotel

Wed, Oct 30, 2019

There is something wonderful about seaside villages — and it all comes down to the soundscape. My fascination with that noise began with a reading of E. Annie Proulx’s wonderful book The Shipping News which brought the reader into that space where the crashing Atlantic against the rocks of Newfoundland became a character in the narrative. And so it is here in Liscannor, this beautiful space looking out on that same ocean, where the sound of the waves plays an equal part of everyday life.

For a quirky refreshing break, be embraced by the AbbeyGlen.

Wed, Oct 23, 2019

There is nothing like the image of a turf fire to carry you through the wilds of winter in search of solace. Driving through Connemara last Friday night, the twilight mountains turning to dark, the moon reflecting off the glasslike lakes painting the vistas between Recess and Clifden a wonderful mixture of blue and black, I longed to arrive at my destination and to feel the heat of orange flames on my face, to lay down my weary self, and to give myself over to hosts tasked with reenergising me with fine food, fine wines, and a hearty welcome.

Be bowled over by incredible sights on your Dubai holiday

Thu, Oct 10, 2019

Picture the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa, soaring into the sky, or the sail shaped Burj Al Arab, set against gleaming Jumeirah Beach. Explore the man-made Palm Islands, stretching theatrically into the Persian Gulf, or the glitzy shopping malls, dripping with luxury. Admire shimmering jewels in the Gold Souk, breathe the smell of cinnamon in the Spice Souk, or haggle for silks in the Textile Souk, fitting in an abra ride across Dubai Creek.

Dubai is a blast for families, with enough theme parks to keep the kids enthralled for weeks. Throw snowballs at Ski Dubai, trek the rainforest at the Green Planet, or brush up on bhangra at Bollywood Parks, themed on Indian blockbusters. Escape the city in the desert sands, to watch falcons swooping or to ride a buggy across the dunes. Dubai has something for everyone.
