Welcome to our Ireland travel information web site.

We, Michael & Karin Shepherd, said goodbye to family and friends in Oregon, USA and moved to Ballydehob, West Cork.  There we operated a village shop and lived above it in a 200 year old stone building.  During our six years in Ireland we traveled every boreen in West Cork and every major highway and byway in Ireland.  Now we would like to use the benefit of our knowledge and experience to help others enjoy Ireland as much as we do.

But we have yet to figure out how to use this travel information site. We have been concentrating our efforts on a more general site about our life and travels in Ireland. Please go there for up to date travel and living abroad advice.

Let our experience improve your experience--www.Ireland-For-You.com

For more about us please see our umbrella site www.TravelShepherd.com

It will direct you to specifics about our life on a Greek island and in the magnificant city of Prague.
