Wintery Tales, take two!

Hello from Siegen!
It's cold here where I live. Ideal weather for staying inside with a good book - in my case that would be writing a book rather than reading one.
I'm currently working on a fantasy novel set in 1920s Ireland. There was a lot going on in Ireland at that particular time, so it's a challenge to get the historical background to my story right. But it's also fun!
Did I ever mention... Ireland is my most favorite place to be? I even lived in the Northwest for a while. County Donegal has the most beautiful beaches, and the Slieve League Cliffs are breathtaking - in the truest sense!
I'm hoping to get in a short vacation in the Connemara area and some on-site research around Dublin this year, if I can make that work out, given the ongoing plague-situation. I am really looking forward to being able to travel there again without restrictions or quarantine measures. Fingers crossed!
What's your most favorite place to be?
Drop me a line and let me know, if you like! :)
P.S. Here are some fantasy books you might enjoy.
Forbidden magic compelled Katira to live a lie, but learning the truth is far more dangerous than she ever dreamed.
When an innocent hunting trip turns into an attack, Katira’s world fractures. Her humble parents are actually legendary Stonebearers – immortal, powerful beings tasked with protecting the human world from creatures of the mirror realm.
Those cracks widen and shatter apart when the Archdemoness, Wrothe, escapes from her timeless prison and snatches Katira away, intending to use her as bait to destroy not only her family line, but the entire Stonebearer Society.
If Katira is to be made whole again, she must learn to trust the young stranger who’s trying to save her while finding the strength to accept not only her parents' power, but her own.
