Pick of the week

Time again to highlight some good reviews out there. The review of the week is kindly sponsored by and we have another two €20 vouchers to give away. Our first two nominations come from Jillknock(thanks jill for highlighting these on our facebook page).

Review 1 comes from a newcomer Margaret30. I love that Jedward finally gets a mention on the site. Are you an Abra fan?

Review 2 comes from Colum, one of our Lisbon winners. Also a man who deserves a black belt so if you like his reviews be sure to follow him, he’s got plenty to say about Cork.

Review 3 comes from Corpo another newcomer. Great suggestion by him for the owners of Break for the Border, I think a proper bowling place in the city centre would actually do well!

Review 4 is of Dublin Zoo which has been getting great reviews recently. Thanks to Wallster for reminding everyone that it’s a good day out.

Which one gets your ‘like’ of approval? or have you found a different review that deserves it? Let me know!
