Off to Ireland to celebrate New Year’s Eve…. Ok, maybe it isn’t the Caribbean or the classic roaring fire apres-ski scenario.
Our first day in Dublin was sunny and gorgeous. After a brief rest, we headed out on a tour with Kevin McDermott (walkingtoursdublin) for a few hours. Meandered through Trinity College, Merrion Square and St. Stephen’s Green. Past the sales on Grafton Street until we (me) ran out of gas in the medieval area of Dublin and just wanted to put our feet up. That is, until we could drink our first Guinness….
My husband’s family is originally from Ireland so he wanted to visit the birthplace of his grandfather. The fact that it was nowhere near Galway and added almost three hours to our trip did not seem to be an issue. For him. Hmmmm. We ended up seeing a lot of rural Ireland. Thurles, Nenagh, Ballinasloe anyone?
Ireland was a blast. The best choice we could have made to ring in 2015!
