Ireland is a special place for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

The newlyweds headed straight to the surprising destination after their over-the-top nuptials for a little romantic R&R – and now we know why.

“We spent Kanye’s bday in Ireland a few years back & fell in love with it!” Kardashian Tweeted on Monday of their honeymoon destination. “It’s such a calming relaxing place!”

During their trip, the pair enjoyed the outdoors with an hour-long mountain biking trek before hitting up a local theater for a movie date.

“They were clearly enjoying having this time together,” mountain bike guide Fergal Somers tells PEOPLE. “They were very affectionate, and it was obvious they were enjoying the remoteness of the location and the lack of people around.”

From there, it was off to the Czech Republic capital of Prague, where the couple attended the wedding of the rapper’s close friend and stylist Renelou Padora.

“Had the best most relaxing romantic honeymoon in Ireland & Prague!” Kardashian shared on Twitter, before she copped to missing daughter North, who turns a year old on June 15. “Missed my baby girl so much! Excited to be home to squeeze her so tight!”

While the trip may have already come to an end, married life with West is just beginning, and Kardashian, 33, is clearly reveling in its glow: When a fan asked Kardashian how married life is, she replied, “Love being Mrs. West.
