Discover the Beauty of Ireland & Have a Whale of a Time*
Ireland has to more to offer than Guinness beer and that lovely accent
*A typical Irish expression that means “a really good time”
When we think of Ireland, we tend to think of pubs, Guinness beer, Saint Patrick’s day and that infamous 3-leaved shamrock (a young sprig, used to symbolize Ireland). But this little gem of a country is a lot more than that; in addition to being the second largest island in Europe, being dubbed the “Emerald Isle” and having its Moher cliffs as backdrops in famous movies such as Harry Potter and Princess Bride, Ireland boasts amazing landscapes, amazing people and astonishing coastal scenery.
For our stop in Ireland, we decided to focus on Donegal and when you read more on it below, you’ll understand why. We believe that this is a quintessential part of Ireland that deserves some attention.
