Looking to Reconnect with Friends or Family? Try a tour of Ireland!

In todays fast paced world, it's hard to keep up with treasured friends and distant family-
even with all the social media connections.
I recently got together family and close friends that
I don't get a chance to see often for a guided tour of Ireland. We arranged flights from all over
the country and met in Dublin where our tour started. We considered renting a car and driving
but everyone wanted to relax, visit and hit the pubs so getting a driver who knew the country
was the way to go for this partying group.

Cocktails on the roof top overlooking...Barcelona, Spain!

We needed a few days of warm weather after touring Ireland so we found Aer Lingus flights
for $100 pp from Dublin to Barcelona. On a recommendation from a fellow traveler in Spain
we stayed at the H10 Montcada, a locally owned Catalan Hotel. We always enjoy local hotels
but this hotel far exceeded our expectations. Even though our flight was late and we arrived at
midnight, the front desk staff welcomed us by popping open a bottle of Cava, the local champagne.

The hotel is centrally located in the Barri Gotic District walking distance to the 13th Century
Barcelona Cathedral and La Rambla, with a metro station across the street.

The jewel in the crown of this hotel is it's incredible staff and it's rooftop bar with live music
overlooking the city at night and the Mediterranean Sea.
