“I hail from the lovely town of Tullow in Carlow, but have been living in Dublin in recent years. I love to travel to new parts of the world and experience different cultures, but it’s always nice to have a weekend at home with family and friends.
"For nights out with the girls, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than South William Street in Dublin’s Creative Quarter. The cool atmosphere and busy cafés and bars make it the perfect place to catch up. On weekends, a visit to Glendalough is always a good call; a hike through the stunning monastic settlement offers a great opportunity to experience the outdoors and get your adrenaline pumping.
“One of my favourite sayings is one passed on to me by my Mam: ‘Don’t knock it ’til you try it.’ So far, it hasn’t steered me wrong.”
