VIDEO: How to make traditional Irish soda bread

Soda bread making step by step

You really ‘ate up’ our recent article about Soda bread and¬†4 other Irish Bread Varieties. Some of you requested recipes and your wish is our command. This time, why not join us for some Soda bread making in the Old Rectory at the Ulster Folk Museum at Cultra in Northern Ireland.

The Old Rectory at the Ulster Folk Museum

Gillian shows us how quick and easy it actually is to make traditional Irish soda farls on a griddle in a home which is estimated to be 300 years old. The house originally stood about one mile east of Toomebridge before being dismantled and moved to the museum in 1971. One of its residents was a Captain Archibald McCallion who had fought as an officer in the British forces during the American War of Independence. Thanks so much Gillian for allowing us to join you!

It boats two light houses, a vintage tram and marina with anything from cute fisher boats to the fanciest of yachts. Curious? Spend three minutes relaxing here with us in this video.

Eight Reasons to Visit North West Majorca

Eight Reasons to Visit North West Majorca

Majorca Misunderstood

Mention Majorca and many people picture lively, built up resorts such as Santa Ponsa and Magaluf. There is however a very different side to Majorca. One of rugged mountains, historic towns and villages and breathtaking scenery. We recently visited the north west of the island and discovered beaches which wouldn’t look out of place in the Caribbean and mountain roads with more twists and turns than any road in Ireland. These eight are what we consider the must sees in the area. There are others such as Cap de Formentor and Sa Calobra, which apparently has one of the most spectacular roads in the world down to it of constant hairpin bends and even a 360 degree loop! View Post
