Our visit to Glendalough

We recently visit one of our favorite places in Ireland which is Glendalough, WIcklow. This is a very popular spot both here in Ireland and abroad. It is home to one of the most famous monastic sites in Ireland which was setup both the Christians and founded by Saint Kevin in the 6th century however most buildings seen today at the famous site are from a later period around the 11th century.

It is amazing that there is so much left including the round tower as Glenaloughs position on right on the lake made it a popular spot for Viking attacks in the 11th and 12 Century. Today you can find a visitor centre which has oceans of information about the site as well as a lovely hotel and cafe after you work up a hunger on the 6km around the lake walk.

There is so much to see there including the famous round tower which the monks hid in when attacked by the Vikings. There is also ruins of the cathedral there as well as Saint Kevins Church.

We took several photos but you really have to visit the centre to do it justice as I just took some photos on my refurbished iPhone 6 but it will give you an idea of what you can see there:

A shout out to our friends at Wifi signal boosters Ireland

Hey guys, this is just a quick shout out to our friends who setup a new website selling wifi signal boosters online so nothing really to do with beautiful sites around Ireland at all! One of them actually is helping us with the setup of our own site so we thought it appropriate to give them a shout out! For those who are not sure what they are wifi signal boosters are exactly what they sound like! You plug in them into a wall socket and they amplify the WIFI network range giving you a greater range throughout your home or office building.

They are pretty affordable for what they are at €34.99 and can amplify the range by up to 300 meters. They also sell a range of WIFI products such as routers and USB dongles and offer next day delivery nationwide with Fastway couriers. The WIFI boosters come with WPS which means that they are fully secure and can help stop data theft. For more information you can visit their site and we wish them the best of luck in the future! Thanks.
