Welcome to Shane’s Travel Blog
I setup Shane’s Travel Blog because I really enjoy traveling. The Shane’s Travel Blog section exists because I used to have a website called “Shane’s Travels” for about 4 years but it wasn’t really working for me as I didn’t travel enough to warrant new blog posts and content. So I took the decision to merge the content with the current content on my personal site, linked under the travel section.
I have many stories and reviews of Hotels, Restaurants, Attractions, Trips and much more from around the world. Originally I had many of these on my other site, shanestravelreviews.com but I decided to take the travel blog back on to my main website. There are a few places I would like to visit in the coming years, including Iceland, Scandinavia, Japan and Thailand and perhaps a return to New Zealand again.
I’ll be posting some new Travel blog posts in the coming months ; hotel and restaurant reviews, pictures, hopefully a few videos, travel tips and more from my travels in Ireland and abroad.

About My Travel Blog Reviews
You might notice that my reviews are fairly positive, basically because I am not going to post reviews of places I didn’t like. All the reviews here are of places which I have personally been and they are my honest opinions based on the time spent at these locations. I take into consideration the welcome, the property, it’s amenities, the facilities, cleanliness, the location, the food (if applicable) and the service / value for money. All of these are key when travelling. So these reviews are important to me to be honest, fair and detailed so other travelers can read and be thus informed.
These are my honest opinions of places I have visited. I have not been compensated for reviews, and my opinions remain my own. I really enjoy sharing my travels and experiences but none of my travels are sponsored – therefore it is 100% independent. If I’m not happy with somewhere I have visited it just won’t end up here … this blog has the best of the best travel and vacation locations only. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy my travel blog.
