Mid-life crisis: Kimye are just like the rest of us

Hearing that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West honeymooned in Castlemartyr, if indeed they did, was somewhat of a turning point for me in my envy of the rich and famous.
As it happens, we have gone to Castlemartyr for the last few summers for our annual visit to Cork and family gathering. It is near enough to my family but far enough from them. It's actually not that dear to book one of the houses there, and you can enjoy all the facilities of the hotel.
I can concur with the international media's portrayal of the place. It is a lovely environment, particularly for the kids. There are little patios behind the houses that merge into a huge walled lawn where there are usually other kids to get stuck into. (My children have not inherited my allergy to getting involved with other people on holidays).
