Magical Lissadell | 54.3467° N, 8.5809° W

Lissadell – A Gardener’s Palimpsest Some gardens take your breath away. Whether through sophisticated planting design, clever colour or material use, fascinating historical contexts or spectacular visual settings; some gardens just shine brighter than others. Anyone that has ever visited the Lissadell house gardens will know what I mean. Set smack bang on the edge of the wild Atlantic coast, the house, which sits surrounded by sloping pastures and lush woodland leads

Mlini- A Love Affair | 42.6228° N, 18.2078° E

Croatia – an Adriatic dream My love affair with Southern Europe started when I was about a year old. My parents, true adventurers, took me to spend a year on the incredible island of Ithaka in Greece. I think it was this early experience of arid landscape, cerulean skies and hot air scented with Rosemary, Sage and Lavender, which has seen me drawn to similar landscapes all my life. Whether

Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro | 22.9606° S, 43.2120° W

Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro One of my favorite places ever visited is the incredible Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro’s South zone. Here in this wonderful old house, which was once the home of industrialist Enrique Lage and his wife, Gabriella Besanzoni, who was a singer. there is now an Art College offering course in Art, photography and more. The contemporary approach of the Art school sits perfectly with

Sugarloaf, Wicklow | 53°9′18″N, 6°9′0″W

A few weeks ago we set off for a trip to the incredible Sugarloaf mountain in  Wicklow. In 2006 I had lived in Wicklow for a year but I had never climbed the mountain itself.  Since my photographer and I were doing our write up and photographing the amazing Powerscourt gardens for my Irish Independent Weekend Magazine articles it made sense to finally climb the beautiful volcanic shaped mountain. In
