All Things Irish


St. Patrick's Day celebration held on March 17th, honoring the death date of St. Patrick, the foremost Patron Saint of Ireland.For most though, it's a day to eat corned beef and cabbage, drink some beer and look for shamrocks and leprechauns.
I thought I'd take you on a visual trip through Ireland, there are so many beautiful spots and experiences, these are just a few.

 

My Favorite Places

The Ring of Kerry

 

Dingle, I just love the sheep everywhere . And the best Fish and Chips I've ever had!

{Killarney School of English}

 

The Cliffs of Moher

One of many charming towns.

 

Castles that will captivate you...

Leap Castle- Built in the 1500's, it's rumored to be the most haunted castle in the world after a turbulent and bloody history.

Ballynahinch Castle- Steeped in a wealth of tradition and intertwined in the history of Connemara and its people for many centuries. Over 700 years old.

Dunluce Castle - You can find this castle clinging to a rocky outpost on the North Antrim coast.Dunluce is reputed to be the inspiration for Cair Paravel,the famous castle in C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. Built around 1150 AD.

Dromoland Castle- This is the only castle of the four here that I've been to and actually stayed in, as it is now a hotel. It was a wonderful experience! Built in the Gothic Revival style, complete with turrets and beautifully manicured gardens. Believed to have been built in the 15th or early 16th century and located in County Clare.

My personal favorite, Irish Coffee.

 

And then there's the Connemara...you may be lucky enough to ride one of these cuties.

 

                                                                                               

May the luck of the Irish be with you today!
