Celebrating the power of connection
In a new series with Green & Black’s, we send couples to spend quality time with each other ( and a hamper of Green & Black’s chocolate) to experience the true value of finding time to reconnect
David Quinn and Jean- Marc Pillaud have been together since 2001 and were married in 2016. Pillaud is originally from the south of France and came to Dublin in 2000. Quinn is originally from Monaghan, and they both now live and work in Dublin city centre.
Although the Dublin- based couple spend lots of time together during the week and at weekends, they say they have truly learned what “quality time” means for them after a two- night stay in Magherintemple Lodge in Co Antrim.
They made the most of this “beautiful house”, as well as visiting nearby sights like the Giant’s Causeway on their weekend on the northern coast, all the while enjoying some of the latest range of products from Green & Black’s.
We got up early on Saturday and went into Ballycastle and had an Ulster fry – that was great. Then we drove to the Carrick- a- Rede rope bridge and to the Giant’s Causeway. We had both really wanted to go to the Giant’s Causeway as both of us had never been before and the rope bridge was so much fun.
On Saturday it rained from the minute we got up until the next day, really, but we didn’t care. We had a laugh about it. We were going to go to a restaurant for dinner but we enjoyed the lodge so much that we just wanted to go back to it. So we got a takeaway and it was just nice to be there with that and the Green & Black’s and not have to cook. It was lovely.
