Ireland | Until We Meet Again

We had a wonderful time in Ireland, but felt we were just getting to the best places on our final couple of days. More than one person had said “Go to the west coast.” Unfortunately we didn’t take that advice and took longer than we should have to get there. On the flip side, we...

    Ireland Road Trip | Final (and Favorite) Days

    Our last two days in Ireland were incredibly beautiful, and we consider them our best days. As we traveled along the west coast and through the amazing countryside from County Clare to Connemara we were wishing for more time to just hang out and enjoy the views. Our first stop, a short drive from Moy House,...

      Ireland Road Trip | County Clare

      This was the first time I got brave enough to attempt driving in Ireland. After taking in a several leaves from the bushes along the left side of the road and panic at driving manual transmission, on a hill, where I had to join other traffic – I chose to return to the left side of...

        Ring of Kerry & Fitzgerald family

        As we traveled more into the southwest region of Ireland, we reached the Ring of Kerry, the edge of Europe on Ireland’s Atlantic seaboard. Based on a recommendation from one of those kind and helpful Irish, we decided to go at a little slower pace and enjoy the beautiful coastal views on the Iveragh Peninsula...

          Ireland Road Trip | County Cork

          Not all the roads in Ireland are narrow and full of curves. While we enjoyed the beautiful tunnels and scenery, it was nice to spend a day traveling to County Cork along the motorway. The best views and rhythms of the country are best seen by driving the country roads, but driving the M9 (motorway) to County Cork...

            Ireland Road Trip | County Wexford to County Kilkenny

            We continued our journey in County Wexford a little further south in the seaside town of Kilmore Quay and stopped in at The Silver Fox. The fresh seafood chowder and catch of the day were amazing, and the Irish once again showed their kindness by giving us information on the best routes to take and sites to...

              On the Road Again – Ireland Road Trip | Dublin to Wexford

              We set out from Dublin for a 14 day road trip. I’m not really fond of selfies, but I had to get a shot of us just before “takeoff” in our Mini Cooper. Unfortunately, my video skills were not much better than Bill’s driving on the left skills coming out of the parking garage. I wish...

                Dublin, Ireland

                We arrived in Dublin amidst blue skies – a rarity in Ireland. The weather is a daily topic of conversation, especially with the locals. Depending upon who you talk to it rains anywhere from every other day to 4 out of 5 days. The luck of the Irish was with us as we enjoyed sunny,...
