I made a really close friend from my last job, so when she moved back home to her native Ireland, I knew I would have to go visit. I went to the county of Clare for my first experience of Ireland and it honestly was one of the most relaxing holidays and the experience was what you would expect - friendly people, gorgeous scenery and a fair amount of rain! The last couple of days we did have some much needed sunshine so it was handy that was when we hit the beach!

I feel so lucky to have met such wonderful people on my trip to Ireland, and I got to see some historic landmarks, see inside a castle, and even see Father Ted's house! We traveled to Galway and all around the coast and drank a fair amount of Barry's tea. I can't wait to return - it felt like a home away from home!
