We made it! We’ll be coming to Ireland this summer!
We plan to go from Dublin and drive to Cork, Killarney and Limerick and back to Dublin.
And see the Ring of Kerry, the Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle, the Cliffs of Moher and so much more. And Dublin, of course.
It’s so exciting – I’ll have to reread a few of my favorite Irish books to start :-) 4 months ago
The weather was fantastic, there were nice souvenirs to buy at very low cost and the people seemed friendly. There were also quite a few street and pub musicians (love these!), brightly painted buildings and my father got to drink a pint of authentic Irish beer :) Total hot guys spotted: 1 (we were only there a few hours :P)
p.s. When we were leaving the port, my parents (and quite a few other people on board) were apparently surprised (I didn’t see them) by the crowds of people gathered around the portside seeing the boat off. It was only a few days ago that they discovered the reason why there were crowds was because the ship we were on was the biggest ship to have set sail from that port since the Titanic and Lusitania ships, both of which sank! So glad to have made it home in one piece, and glad I didn’t know that at the time as I’m pretty superstitious!
Hopefully one day I’ll go back and visit more of Ireland- but this was a great introduction :) 5 months ago
I have been once before. A few years ago for a summer course I took on ancient celtic spirituality. It was amazing, but I would love to go back on my own terms and see all the things I want to see. 6 months ago
We spent 6 days here and visited Kilkenny, Blarney, Killarney, Ring of Kerry and Dublin. We were actually in Dublin for St. Patrick’s Day, which was a once in a lifetime experience. I am definitely glad we pinched our pennies for a year to make this trip a reality. 8 months ago
My ex was half Irish, and a few other guys I’ve had crushes on were Irish, so wondering if Irish guys in general are hot? lol. I love the olivey complexions and dark, almost black hair a lot of them seem to have…it’ll be interesting to people watch while I’m there :) I find it particularly exciting to go somewhere that isn’t that far from Britain (saying that, neither is Norway)yet is still somewhat ‘exotic’ and foreign…I’m unlikely to meet a guy in the few hours I’m there but I’ll keep hoping haha 8 months ago
If all goes to plan, which it will hopefully, I’ll be going to Ireland for the day on June 3rd! We’re going to 6 different places in Norway and stopping in Cork (in the Republic of Ireland) on the way there. So excited!! :) I won’t mark this goal off as completed until I travel there…just in case (but hopefully nothing will go wrong.) 10 months ago
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. 12 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. 12 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 :) 17 months 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? 19 months ago
