What’s your favourite thing about Ireland?
It has to be the people – we’re warm, fun and mostly easy-going. We’re able to laugh at ourselves which is so important!
Your favourite Irish town?
Greystones, Co Wicklow. Of course I’m biased (I live there!), but it really has everything. You have beautiful seafront views, independent boutiques, gift shops, and incredible restaurants and cafes. There’s a warmth and a buzz to Greystones. It’s also home to the Happy Pear, where I regularly stop for a coffee or a quick bite to eat.
Best view in Ireland?
Mullaghmore, Co Sligo. It’s a gorgeous little spot that we holiday in, thanks to my kind uncle who has a beautiful holiday house there. I like to sit in the living room with a glass of wine and look directly over at the sea. It’s the most perfect view on a good day. Thanks Uncle Jimmy!
Best bar in Ireland?
I love the cosiness of the Horse and Hound in Delgany village. Favourite weekend retreat?
Dromoland Castle, Co Clare. Now that’s an escape!
Where do you shop for clothes?
Littlewoods are incredible for my on-air wardrobe – and also my clothes for the real world and being a mum! My clothing can be vastly different depending on what day it is. I love Zara too.
Where do you pick up ingredients for cooking? Local supermarkets, wherever is handiest.
Favourite Irish building?
I think the Aras always looks so stately and impressive – there’s a sense of pride about it.
What do you recommend to tourists?
The Guinness Storehouse; Trinity College (the library and courtyards especially); Grafton St; and Stephen’s Green on a sunny day. Going south, I think tourists need to see the likes of Inchydoney, and enjoy the charm of a village like Clonakilty. Have a pint of the black stuff and enjoy a late night singalong. Nothing like it!
