In 2014, I traveled to Ireland with my husband, my sister and her hubs. We had a great time driving down country roads (on the left side of the road) and exploring hidden gems. Many of the old castle or abbey ruins we explored were done on our own with only a few cows to consult us. And I really mean it! We had a whole castle to ourselves and there were cows living in it, ha! One night we even stayed in a beautiful castle turned into a hotel and golf course. We did a mixture of luxury stays and B& B's on this trip. I like to be pampered but I also like to get to know the people in the country I am enjoying! I would love to tell you more about one of my favorite trips that started in Dublin and meandered through central and southern Ireland until we ended up at the Cliffs of Moher. Better yet, I would love to help you plan a trip like this for yourself!
