7 Incredible Irish Travel Ideas!

Irish landscape

The isle really is emerald!


Ok, so I started with a little sight seeing—can you blame me! Charming villages, stone castles, ocean air and green for miles—this is Ireland. The people are friendly and welcoming, the hotels are warm and cozy and the Pubs have the best entertainment in town. Nestle in front of the glowing fire and enjoy the evening. If you like cashmere or woolen sweaters, gloves and scarves you have just entered Heaven. The shops are full of locally made goodies and if they don’t have what you need in stock they will make it for you. Did I mention the golf. Mr. P played golf twice a day for 6 days straight—his kind of Heaven. If you haven’t been to Ireland add it to your list now. I think that is more than 7 reasons to plan your next trip to Ireland…8 reasons to visit Ireland!
