About Me


Welcome to “R U in Ireland?”

Your Ultimate Guide to Ireland 

Hi, My name is Elena and I am Russian living in Ireland. I have been studying, working and doing a lot of travelling in Ireland. I have lived here since 2002 and now not only officially Irish, I feel Irish. In my time here I have walked the hills of Donegal, explored countless ruins,  climbed Croagh Patrick, fished for treasures of Atlantic, visited countless gardens, tasted various Irish specialities, been a guest at an Irish Traditional Wedding, attended concerts, festivals and other events, local theater productions, made friends, stayed in B&Bs, castles, luxury hotels, country houses, self-catering cottages and even slept in a tent on few occasions. There are things that I have not experienced on the Green Island of Ireland and that is why I keep going and keep documenting my trips.
