Hey Guys!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I attended a ball with lots of my friends and family (nearly 30 of us in total) so I was a little worse for wear the past two days but I’m starting to feel human enough to get cracking on blog work again! I’ll be doing a full post on all the details of the ball in the next few days so keep your eyes peeled…

For today’s post though, I’ll be talking all things wine and charcuterie related. It’s no secret that I have a very deep love for both wine and cheese (in no particular order) so I’m surprised at myself for not doing this post sooner! One of my favourite things to do is to go out with the girls for a few glasses of wine and share a meat and cheese platter along with all of our news. These few glasses generally tend to turn into a few bottles but that’s neither here nor there ūüôā Galway has so many amazing restaurants, that I think it’s time I started to show them the love they deserve here on adashoflime.net so I thought where better to start, than with some of my favourite places for that perfect sharing platter!¬† View Post

A day filled with craic, culture, good food & wine..sounds perfect right? That’s why I was absolutely delighted to have been invited back to attend this years¬†Campo Viejo Tapa’s Trail. Last year myself & my best friend Vicky attended and when I told her this year I had been invited back, she told me quite frankly under no circumstances was I allowed invite anyone else, so I think that will tell you how much you she enjoyed last year’s event too!

This year’s trail included four amazing well known Galway eateries;¬†The House Hotel,¬†Biteclub,¬†56 Central¬†and¬†Cava Bodega.

I’ll warn you from the get go, this post is gonna be a picture heavy one but once you look at the photos you will understand why. While I was in America last month, we were lucky enough to be there for the 4th of July weekend. On that weekend we decided we would take the plunge and drive up to Lake Tahoe. Now when I say we, what I really mean is leave all of the driving to our brilliant and considerably less of a wuss, best friend Sara Kate and leave the annoying singing and car-games to us in the back. We rose early on the Saturday morning (hungover, again- shock, I know!) to come to the conclusion that it was probably best to get out of the city for the weekend so Tahoe View Post

Located in Marin County, Sausalito is an idyllic seaside town that boasts the¬†most amazing views looking across onto San Francisco Bay, it’s two bridges and Alcatraz. Our bestie that lives in San Francisco, Sara Kate kept insisting we go there on a day that was nice but we never got around to it until our second last day when she drove us there herself, making sure we didn’t miss out. ¬†She was determined that we got there and I now know why. The place is a little piece of paradise. View Post

Hey Lovelies!

Hope you’re all having a lovely Sunday! I mentioned in my San Fran¬†post¬†that along with all of the hundred and one things there are to do there, there are also a hundred and one AMAZING places to eat. Seriously, I’ve never eaten so much in my life!! One of the best places we went (and we ate out everyday for 14 days) was most definitely¬†Kate’s Kitchen. If you’re brunching in San Fran, then this is the place for you! View Post
