Is Your Dream Vacation…Ireland?

If you could visit anywhere, where would you go?

Have you ever thought about that question?
For years, our answer has always been: IRELAND!

I wanted to see a castle. (How about you?) 
My husband wanted to see a game of Gaelic Football. (More to that story on a later post.)

We “planned” on going to Ireland for our 10th wedding anniversary. However, just like so many others’ dream vacation, on the eve of our 10th anniversary, we did the very adult thing with our saved money and bought a house instead.
(Has your dream vacation ever gotten put on hold?)

A few years later, (Yes, I’m older than I look.) we were talking with our friends about Ireland…and we half-jokingly decided we would all go together. 
How the four of us could all celebrate our 15th year of wedding anniversaries. 
(We all got married in the same year. :) )


But because we were so excited about the idea, and a few other reasons, the hopeful daydreaming moved to actually planning…and we all ended up going to Ireland last May.

Some of my favorite places weren't the "typical" tourist attractions, 
like this off the path waterfall find.

And yes, it was FABULOUS!!! 

Over the next few blogs, I’ll be digging into where we went, what we saw, and despite what a travel guide advised me against—we managed to drive around the entire country in less than 10 days. And LOVED IT.
(Did I mention they drive on the opposite side of the road than us? 
And not all roads are big enough for passing cars…
Seriously, some were barely large enough for our small rental. 
But some of those nerve-racking “paths” led us to the best scenery!)

Stay tuned for more pictures. (I came home with TONS of photos. It’s so beautiful over there.) And maybe, you can learn how you can plan your own dream 10-day Ireland vacation without a guide too. (Or if someone wants to hire us as guides…we’d love to go back. 😊)

 Have any questions about Ireland, please let me know so I can share our adventure!

Where would your dream vacation be? Maybe we'll go there next. ;) 

With love and prayers,
