Accommodations

This page highlights posts that review or talk about places that we have stayed at along the way of our journey across the world. Typically you will find the flat, apartment, or home embedded on the page along with a review of the accommodation itself. There will also be additional info on things to do and see around that particular accommodation as well as places to eat.

Who we book our accommodations with

We tend to book with AirBNB.com. They are the easiest to use and they offer a great guarantee. They also seem to have the largest database of places to stay. However, we have used homeway.com, vrbo.com and Trip Advisor Rentals. Each of these websites also offer a smartphone app. Airbnb even has an app now for the new Apple TV which we have used a lot lately.

Hopefully you will find valuable information on this page, including potential places that you will want to stay as you follow along on our trip around the world. If you have any questions or want more information on booking accommodations while you travel, don’t hesitate to ask me.

If you plan on staying with AirBnb for the first time. Follow this link and we both get a $20 discount. You can follow click the link if you also plan on hosting for AirBnB.

London England Two Week Overview

We spent two weeks in London. This is the second time that I have been here. The first time was with my Aunt Beth just about fifteen years ago. She took me around London and different parts of England. It was the first time that I had travelled somewhere by myself and I can still remember very vividly the roads we drove, the hotels we stayed in, and the cities we roamed. One of those cities, in fact my favorite city, was Bath, England. We stayed in South Hampton, Lakenheath and Mildenhall. It was one of the funnest trips that I have ever been on and I can’t imagine how much my Aunt Beth spent while we travelled around. This trip nearly fifteen years ago set up a lot of what we would do this time around. Continue Reading

Dungarvan, Ireland – Beautiful Coastal Town

The apartment we rented was located above MJ’s beauty salon and had a great view of the ocean and an old church. Everything in this town was within walking distance, so despite having a rental car, we really only used it to visit Lismore or Waterford.

Dungarvan has a nice shopping center, several grocery stores and plenty of great restaurants. They also have a movie theater that is nice and incredibly affordable. Like all of the towns we have visited, the people of Dungarvan are incredibly warm and friendly. Continue Reading

Ahakista Ireland – Sheeps Head Peninsula

Sheila converted an old stone home into this beautiful cottage that she actually divided into two different livable spaces. One of the original walls is found inside this home. It has a lot of cool history and she even has a photo album documenting the transformation.

View from our cottage.

As you can see in the picture above, the view from this cottage is incredible. Everything about this place is tranquil. Located on the far south end of Ireland, we were surrounded by the ocean. There was nothing around us but water, green hills and cow pastures. Every sunrise and sunset was spent looking out our balcony window and telling myself, “I can’t believe this is real”.

Louisburgh Ireland – Our First Rental

The reasons for visiting Louisburgh first were obvious to Katie and I. First, we wanted to be in a small and quiet town, close to the ocean where our family could adjust to the time change. (Ireland is 8 hours ahead of Arizona.) This ended up not being that big of a deal for the kids. I personally think that our stay in New York for four days helped the kids adjust easier.

Second, we wanted to be in a nice home, similar to our old home in Arizona in order to make it easier on the kids, especially Grayson. On the top of this post, you will see the AirBnB location that we rented in Louisburgh. This home is owned by Dolly and Graham. Simply put, they were fantastic to work with and really spoiled us. Their home was lovely and helped us adapt quickly. Continue Reading
