The goal is to encourage at least my dad to join me in Ireland in 2013 for National Heritage Week, August 15th – 27th. He hates to fly though, so it could be a tough sell. 21 months ago

We have had a rough year fincially, but this week-long trip to Ireland next March was only going to cost us about $1,400 a piece including airfare, hotel, some meals and some sightseeing. I couldn’t pass up such a great deal, since I have been wanting to go to Ireland for quite some time. 21 months ago
It’s the only country in Britain (or not in Britain, if I end up going to the Republic) I haven’t been to yet, so it’d be nice to have seen them all! I hear Ireland is very green and beautiful, to be honest, so are England, Scotland and Wales, but Ireland does seem to have a charm that attracts people. I’m not sure whereabouts I’d go but I’m not hugely keen on Dublin… I’ve heard from Irish people that it’s stupid-expensive; a lot of them are here in Liverpool for that reason. Apparently it’s cheaper to effectively travel to another country for a night out, than stay drinking in your hometown. Mad. Anyway, it’ll be at least another year before I can think about going, so plenty of time for research :) 2 years ago
I have to add Ireland to my must-visit-places list after recently watching movies “P.S. I Love You” and “Leap Year”, both were set in Dublin, Cork and surrounding. The nature views were breathtaking, the people looked friendly and warm. I kinda fell for them. Or maybe because of the romantic stories? 2 years ago
I spent my birthday in Ireland back in October, and it was absolutely a dream come true!
I made some great friends while there, and am already mentally planning my next trip. I’ve heard that everyone who travels eventually stumbles upon their home away from home. The place where, for no apparent reason, they feel absolutely at home from the moment they arrive.
For me, that place is Ireland.
Ennis, Co. Clare, to be precise. 2 years ago
I just sent that off on Monday. We’re planning to go in March 2013, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The trip package is only $599 per person for 7 days/6 nights—not including airfare, but it does include hotels, breakfasts, ground transportation, some excursions and some dinners. What a steal! 2 years ago
Both sides of my family (great grandparents) are from there but I’ve never been arsed to despite it being very close… I’m Cardiff now but was in Edinburgh a few years ago.
I’ve been to Northern Ireland a handful of times but I don’t count it, I might combine it with way of looking into my family tree. 2 years ago
