Things I Miss About Ireland

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Like, the real holiday … not the drinking one. 😉 As you (probably) know, I’ve been in love with Ireland for my entire life and finally was able to travel there in 2015 (I won that trip – did you know?) so why not chit chat about it on this Irish day?

What I miss about Ireland

The People
Seriously, if you want to go somewhere and feel more welcome than you do in your “homeland” – go to Ireland. The people are happy, simple, excited for life and polite. They get up and dance at restaurants on a Tuesday night. They smile (sometimes toothless smiles, but hey) when you walk into a room and greet you. They call you things like “love” and “sweetheart” in their beautiful accents and make you want to sit and stare at them all day. Just me?

The Sheeps!
I can’t help it. I was obsessed with the sheep there. THEY WERE ALL OVER THE PLACE. P.S. Yes, I know the plural of sheep is sheep … come on now, guys. 😉

The Beauty
I have never seen a more beautiful place. Between the greenery (seriously … the most GREEN you’ve ever seen, I promise), the flowers, the palm trees (it still blows me away that they had those), the fields … Just insane.

The Castles & Old Buildings
The castles are the initial reason I fell in love with Ireland. I had books of Ireland growing up and used to look at all of the beautiful castles, abbeys, etc. They’re gorgeous and OLD. We don’t have anything this old in the U.S. obviously, so it was insane thinking about what happened in those buildings.

The Cliffs
The Cliffs of Moher are absolutely gorgeous. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. It was super windy, but a beautiful day. This was #2 on my list of things to see in Ireland (after the Blarney Castle) and it did not disappoint.

The Food
The fish was INSANE. I had fish and chips for almost every meal. Or seafood chowder. Even the beef was amazing and I’m not a huge red meat fan. It’s very obvious that their animals are taken care of there. OMG I want to go back just for the fish.

Okay, I’ll stop. Fun fact – I only intended on putting in one picture per category. Whoooops.

    I’m going to Ireland at the end of April and I’m so excited!!! But I’m also so nervous I’m going to literally gain 10 pounds in the 2 weeks I’m there (and London) because I’ll be eating fish and chips nonstop…

      OMG HAVE SO MUCH FUN!!! You won’t 🙂 I actually lost weight on my trip to Ireland because I was walking so much and barely ate any snacks because I was full from my meals AND the food was fresh and not full of crap. 🙂
