Planning your Honeymoon in Ireland

Here at Drangan Video we are seeing more and more brides and grooms opting to honeymoon at home, and why not? This wonderful country of ours has so much to offer at all times of the year, and whilst our weather may be on the unpredictable side, the midlands and coastline always remain just as luscious and romantic.

If you’re thinking of staying at home to honeymoon after your wedding in 2017 or 2018, check out our very own personal favourite destinations below. We’d love to hear from any of our readers who have recently honeymooned or holidayed at home with suggestions of hidden gems.

Ring Of Kerry

The wilds of Connemara are dotted with romantic retreats perfect for an idyllic Irish honeymoon. Stroll around the town of Clifden or venture into the wilds. With lakeside walks, undiscovered beaches, luxurious hotels and scenery that is absolutely unmatched elsewhere you really couldn’t ask for anything more.

West Cork

West Cork offers peace, tranquillity, epic scenery, sandy beaches, picturesque villages, artisan delights and cuisine that will make your mouth water! This wonderful part of Cork County is home to some of the world’s most enviable landscapes and is a welcoming getaway at any time of the year. Whether you decide to rent a cottage or stay in a luxurious hotel, West Cork will ensure your honeymoon memories are extra special.

Powerscourt Gardens Wicklow

There’s no doubt in my mind, that the county of Kerry can offer just as much as any foreign destination. Dingle, Killarney and Tralee are all within driving distance of each other and the towns and villages dotted in between will ensure you are never left wanting. As a honeymoon destination, Kerry has become extremely popular with our foreign visitors, so why not for us natives? Spend time exploring the lakes, walking the national park or cuddling up in front of a warm fire with a local speciality.

Dublin County and Surrounds

Whilst Dublin may not be on the very top of your list as a honeymoon destination, you should remember that there is more to the county than just a busy city. Also, Dublin County is great as a base in which to travel into the city or to other counties nearby such as Wicklow and Kildare. If you want to get out and about during your honeymoon, we can highly recommend trips to Newgrange, Powerscourt, Kildare Village, Lough Tay and Glendalough.

Samuel Beckett Bridge Dublin
County Donegal

What more could you ask for than a county covered in woodlands, with magnificent coastline and people that are as friendly as you are likely to meet? Donegal has made this list of Irish honeymoon destinations because of it’s timeless beauty and welcoming natives. A windswept coastline with a host of top class destination hotels for you to choose from. For those of you who wish to stay in an Irish speaking area, you really couldn’t ask for anything more!

As you plan your honeymoon in Ireland, keep an eye on midweek packages, which provide fantastic value for money throughout the year. Honeymooning in Ireland need not be expensive if you plan in advance and take advantage of special offers that you will find at all times of the year.

Rosegreen Players : Funny Play ” It’s the Real McCoy”

Once again it is was a great honor to have been asked to be the videographer for the The Rosegreen Players 2015 production, ” It’s the Real McCoy” by Tommy Marren.  It is always nice at this time of the year to get a break from shooting wedding videos and concentrate on musicals and drama productions in an around places such as Casel, Clonmel, Cahir and of coarse Rosegreen.

Rosegreen  is a small vibrant Village situated on the main Cashel Clonmel road, the Rosegreen players are connected with the village through community events and of coarse the beautifully refurbished hall which stands proud beside the GAA field. I have been associated with this drama for almost 10 years and have recorded many famous productions of which have been directed Hugh O’ Neill  his attention to detail is amazing and he has never disappointed his audiences.


This years play “It’s the Real McCoy” is very funny and yet a very powerful story of live in Ireland in the not too distant past, the play follows the story of Madge Molloy whose husband Tom disappeared  from her life after just 4 months of marriage leaving her to scratch out a living from the small family farm and rear her only daughter Maura, now forty three years later Tom makes an unexpected return.
