This post has been in the back of my mind since we (Glenda - great friend and fellow Marianne and I) set off to Ireland on the 23rd March this year. The ADEC teaching calendar allows for a one week break between Trimester 2 and 3 and we took full advantage!
The great thing about the friendship Glenda and I share is that we are both so easy, so on that note the only details we had arranged for our week in the land of the shamrock was our flights in and out, car hire and our first nights hotel booking in Dublin, the other 9 days would be as they came!
Our plan for the 9 days was to simply drive, visit and sleep in the towns where we were when night fell and that is EXACTLY what we did. We landed in Dublin with the idea of driving down the south coast making our way to Galway and then back across the country to Dublin for our flight out!
By the photos of each region you should be able to deduce that my favorite area of the whole country was county Galway. What made it so special were our hosts John and Hannah, our personal full day tour of an area that many Irish people have never even visited and the unending beauty of rural living.
Ireland I will be back and it was more than I expected? Totally breathtaking!
9 days, 1574 km, two friends and a LIFETIME of memories!
