The Cocktail Tourist

I started this about 5 years ago to keep track of places I’ve been to and want to remember or pass on as recommendations. Five years later and a baby later this site will potentially go in a more baby orientated direction as I’ve found it hard to know whats baby friendly around me for days out. Given everything happening with Covid currently, businesses have had to change their operations so may have limited/no seating, one way systems etc. that can be challenging with a buggy, so I’ve started to keep note of places worth visiting! 

Things to do Indoor

Having a baby in November, means by the time you’re ready to leave the house, the weather is pretty shit!

Ireland – Staycation

We booked a week off in August to do a little staycation/babymoon. We had a couple of Bluebook vouchers from the wedding so decided to put them to good use. We started off with two very different places in Wexford before moving across to Limerick.


I booked a weekend in Milan during one of the cheap Ryanair sales, and we were initially due to go in September but pushed it out to the first weekend of December. I had never been to Italy before so was very much looking forward to putting on a good 3 stone over the weekend.
