Galen Bales: An Irish Landmarker’s story

April 25, 2017

This month, we had the pleasure of sitting down with one of our very own Irish Landmarkers Galen Bales. Galen is an entrepreneur, a leading business mind and has a long-standing involvement with Irish Landmark Trust. Galen arrived in Ireland from the U.S.A. in 1994 and vividly recalls the visible dilapidation of beautiful buildings peppered […]

Aspirations for 2017

February 1, 2017

How has January passed for you? Have you embarked on the new chapters promised for 2017? January can get a bad press. It feels like a month created to survive versus a month designed to live. Resolutions can be cruel at a time when the weather is bleak and the days are short. For this […]

February’s arrival signals that we have made it through the worst of seasonal austerity but judging by the cold spells to date we still need to wrap up.

Try and select a holiday with Irish Landmark Trust that takes you out of your comfort zone. If you want to tackle brave new heights, The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge is just a short drive from two of our properties, namely Magherintemple Lodge and Kiln Wing, Old Corn Mill in Co. Antrim. However, bravery can come […]

Aspiration Two: Visit somewhere in Ireland that you have always meant to go and never have. 

February 1, 2017

We have all experienced that conversation where you say ‘I really must try and get there’ or when an overseas visitor’s favourite place in Ireland is somewhere you haven’t been. Sometimes when we travel, our inclination is to spend hours in the car or to create grandiose plans to be achieved. One of the joys […]

Aspiration One: Select an interesting personality and let the blaze of their historic path guide your trip

February 1, 2017

You don’t need to start studying intensely but a gentle exploration will uncover how many of our properties have links to wonderful iconic figures and historic personalities. Selecting a guiding force and flicking through a book or watching some clips on the Internet is a very unique and intellectually satisfying way to prepare for a […]
