The Best Family Friendly Hotels in Ireland

By Annabel Hynes | April 23, 2017 | (No) | 2359
One of the most difficult aspects of travelling is the trial of wrangling the kids, whether the trip is intended as a family holiday getaway or not. Family holidays can often seem to be more trouble than they’re worth, which is why having a family friendly hotel that meets your needs is so important. Not only are the facilities a priority, however, but the amenities that lie outside the hotel, B&B or hostel are key to making it a real family friendly destination for your break. Here is a ..

By Annabel Hynes | April 19, 2017 | (One) | 1719
The age of technology in which we are currently thriving offers much in the way of amenities; on our smartphones alone we can access search engines, live streams, video-calling and just about any game or activity conceived in Silicon Valley. Applications are the medium for such privileges, and as the industry behind them develops, more versatile ones pop up that can be used for many different aspects of daily life. Take regular exercise – it can be a gruelling habit to enter into, but it is ma..

Why has Vaping Become So Popular in Ireland?

By Annabel Hynes | March 30, 2017 | (No) | 1107
One of the latest trends to go global is the phenomenon known as “vaping”. This practise, which is essentially considered by many to be the healthier alternative to smoking, has taken off in recent years, and the demand doesn’t look to be dying down any time soon. E-cigarettes are the vessels of this new trend, battery-powered pieces of technology that heat a liquid infused with pure nicotine and turn it into steam to be inhaled. The liquid can be flavoured with anything from the taste of ..

The Craziest Drinking Games to Play on St. Patrick’s Day

By Annabel Hynes | March 17, 2017 | (No) | 1829
There’s no end to the kinds of shenanigans that can go down on St. Patrick’s Day, especially if you’re Irish – or worse, an American with Irish heritage that feels the need to live up to a stereotype. One of the greatest joys of this once-religious holiday is drinking copious quantities of alcohol without judgement, in celebration of our country’s patron saint; and as everyone knows, simply drinking is not enough. It has to get weird. Check out some of the most innovative and plain rid..

Are Juice Detox Diets Actually Safe?

By Annabel Hynes | March 5, 2017 | (No) | 1135
There are many different and creative ways to lose weight these days, and if you’re dedicated enough, some of the more unorthodox ways can even work. Juice detoxing, or a ‘juice cleanse’, isn’t so much a method of losing weight long term, but a three-day diet that allegedly flushes the toxins from your body. The idea is that you sustain yourself purely on liquids for a set number of days, drinking only organic smoothies and juices made from fruit and/or vegetables. This is meant to relie..

The 2017 Oscars – What Can We Expect?

By Annabel Hynes | February 25, 2017 | (No) | 1992
The 2017 Academy Awards will broadcast live at 8pm EST this Sunday, the 26th of February, from the Dolby Theatre in LA. There are plenty of places to stream the show online, but for the Irish film fans who have better things to be doing at 2am, it might be handier to simply tune in to RTÉ2 on Monday night for the highlights. The line-up for the award show is extraordinary this year with funnyman Jimmy Kimmel on host duties for the first time. It is likely to be a serious competition but who has..

The Alternative Ways of Staying Fit

By Annabel Hynes | February 21, 2017 | (No) | 1257
Going to the gym is the standard method of staying fit in the modern world. Many people have desk-bound jobs that keep them stationary for most of the day, and leave and return to their homes in darkness. Keeping that in mind, psyching yourself up for the gym can be a herculean task when you’ve been working or studying all day, and a lot of people simply don’t bother. Why emerge from one tedious job only to steep yourself in another? Well, that’s where you have to start getting creative. R..

Choosing the Right Gym for Your Needs

By Annabel Hynes | February 7, 2017 | (No) | 2644
New Year’s Day is fading farther and farther into the past, and along with it many people’s resolutions. It’s easier to try eating healthier, or ditching the cigarettes, or becoming fitter early on in the year, when the experience is new and encouraging. As we transition from January to February however, those resolutions start getting more difficult – especially if you’re not getting the results you want. This is never more accurate than when people attempt to improve their fitness by..
