A Day in the Life: Steller bloggers take on Ireland

Killary Harbour, County Galway

A day on the island of Ireland can be quite the adventure! See the island through the eyes of storytellers as they capture a digital day in the life of Ireland…

Here in Ireland, we love a good story. We believe in the power stories have in bringing people together – and so do the people at Steller.

Steller believes that everyone has a story to tell, and has created a space for people around the world to tell their tales. We teamed up with Steller to invite some of the best storytellers from around the world to capture a digital day in the life of Ireland. Here are their tales of adventure…

Fariba Stoddart/@berriestagram

A full day of what Malzard’s Pub calls "The Hurling Experience" really gave Fariba a taste of everything Irish on her trip to Kilkenny!

I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun the whole experience was!

@berriestagram

First she was taught about the ancient Gaelic sport of hurling, while learning how to hold a hurling stick and ball (known as a 'sliotar'). But it wasn’t just hurling that Fariba experienced – the education continued inside the pub, where Fariba was taught how to pull a perfect Irish pint. The day continued into night with live trad music, a sing-along, storytelling and Irish dancing. Now that’s a perfect day in Ireland’s Ancient East!

For Game of Thrones® fans, a trip to Northern Ireland is like stepping into real-world Westeros. That's what Kirsten discovered when she went on a Game of Thrones® adventure.

Ireland is one of the best places on the planet to indulge in visiting as a fan of the show

@KirstenAlana

Kirsten’s day was jam-packed with all things Game of Thrones®: dressing up in official Game of Thrones® costumes at Castle Ward, taking a boat ride through Boyne Valley led by an actor from the show and even taking a helicopter ride over the many Game of Thrones® filming locations around Northern Ireland. Kirsten can definitely say she had the ultimate fan experience on her day on the island of Ireland!

Marlynn Schotland/@urbanblisslife

Take a trip outside Dublin city and you’ll find the prettiest villages dotted along the coast. This is what Marlynn discovered when she spent a day at the charming seaside village of Howth.

You’ll find plenty of artisan baked goods and colourful candy to satisfy your sweet tooth at the Howth Market

@urbanblisslife

Located around a picturesque harbour, Howth has some of the finest seafood in Dublin – something Marlynn found out as she wandered past the seafront restaurants. But no day in Howth would be complete without popping into the unique seafront market. Throughout the week the shops at the front of the market sell delicious food and hand-crafted trinkets, and at the weekend the market opens its doors to reveal local vendors selling everything from organic goods and sweet treats to Irish-made jewellery and antiques. You could spend a whole day at the market alone, but Marlynn made sure to squeeze in as much of the beautiful surrounds as she could into her day by the sea.

JJ Yosh/@jjyosh

We’re hard pressed to think of a better way to start the day than waking up in an Irish castle. Treated like a king with great helpings of Irish hospitality, this is exactly how JJ began his day in the west of Ireland.

I am really understanding how incredible the Irish hospitality is!

@jjyosh

Starting off his adventures with a run across a beach to beat the tides to Omey Island – an island that is only accessible at low tide – JJ went on to see the dramatic Killary fjord framed by impressive mountains, discovered a hidden forest as he explored the Killary coastline, and finished off with a dance on the Maumturk mountains.
