The reality is that Joan is a realist; she is wise, willing to share her knowledge and infinitely warm. In […]

Whale Watching in Cork

Whale & Dolphin Watching

The Irish government declared the coastal waters of Ireland a whale and dolphin sanctuary during the early 1990’s. The first of its kind in Europe.
