Outdoor markets, warmly lit downtowns, cozy restaurants, cheerful locals... there is something special about American…
So many fun things to do in Ireland.
Where to even begin?
Storytelling, falconry, harvesting oysters, step-dancing and staring off the edge of a cliff at Dun Aengus on Inis Mor… Today I’m dreaming of Ireland and my memories of the wonderful times I’ve had on the Emerald Isle.
You can go to Ireland for many reasons, but the locals, food and customs will always be the experience you remember. Given my choice, I love a glass of cheek-numbing whisky and the landscapes of the western coast. Relax and enjoy the ride as you drive around for hours exploring amazing towns with names like Doolin, Dingle and Ballybunion; stopping on occasion for a mug of dark beer and oysters prepared the Irish way– with house baked brown bread and creamy butter.
My alter ego, the princess, prefers the amazing ancient castles. Many princes have married their brides in the castles of Ireland. While some have been transformed into 5-star hotels, many are just fun to explore with names like Blarney, Bunratty, Cahir and Ashford.
