Kim Kardashian wanted to honeymoon in Ireland because she and Kanye West had fallen in love with the country during a previous visit.

The reality TV star - who married the rapper on May 24 in Florence, Italy - and her new spouse had a "relaxing" break in Cork, and chose the destination because they had had such a good time when they celebrated the 'Bound 2' rapper's birthday there a few years ago.

Kim took to Twitter to explain why they chose Ireland, posting: "We spent Kanye's bday in Ireland a few years back & fell in love with it (sic)"

She added: "Its such a calming relaxing place! (sic)"

Her comments poured cold water on rumors she hated every second of her "boring" honeymoon and couldn't wait to move on to Prague.

When a fan asked how she is finding married life, Kim also replied: "Love being Mrs. West. (sic)"

During their trip to Ireland, the couple went sightseeing and embarked on an hour-long mountain trek in Ballyhoura, where Kanye, 36, had biked a number of years ago while visiting the country for work.

The two also enjoyed a date night at a cinema in Tullamore.

Kim, 33, and Kanye later went to the Czech Republic for stylist Renelou Padora's wedding.
