Travel Ireland The recent passing of St. Patrick’s Day reminded Kongo of a trip to Ireland a few years ago, leprechauns, and shamrocks. The cathedral at Cashel, the home of St. Patrick Gravestones at Cashel Ruins of the nunnery adjacent to the cathedral at Cashel Enchanted forests Great pubs Getting lost is half the fun Jamison distillery Interesting doors everywhere Share this:TweetEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading...

Beautiful photos. 🙂 I want so much to got to Ireland and Scotland. Years ago we had the money ready to buy tickets, and our roof began leaking. Now we have what we call our Irish Roof. lol
Wonderful! What gorgeous scenery – thank you for sharing!
Those sheep look familiar! (We saw similar “sheep jams” in Scotland.)
They must move em around for the tourists
I have always wanted to go to Ireland, and your awesome pictures aren’t helping my obbsession!!!
Just get on that plane and go! Life is too short to have unfulfilled obsessions. Have fun.
I’m planning on back packing through Europe, I just have to plan when!
Hey Kongo, love the pictures. Trying to put together a DIY tour of Ireland. What were your must-sees?
Hey Paul, you’re going to love Ireland. The monkey has twice visited the Emerald Isle and would suggest the following. First, only make a reservation the first night or two. Be flexible and seek out B&Bs in the quaint villages you’re going to be passing through. The Ring of Kerry is a must see. Cork, Galway, Cashel, the Cliffs of Mohr, the Burren, Waterford (for the crystal factory tour), Bunratty Castle, kiss the Blarney Stone, are all places you shouldn’t miss. Regrettably, the monkey has not yet visited Dublin having flown in and out of Shannon each visit. He hasn’t been to Northern Ireland either as there were some troubles there during previous visits. We would fly into Shannon, rent a car and head out. It’s fun getting lost and I would add that to your list. Most likely, the car will be a stick shift so Kongo recommends something sporty and fun to drive. Like England, driving is on the left side, opposite from the US. A GPS with Irish roads is a good idea although Kongo only used maps during his visits. Hiking trails abound near the Ring of Kerry. You will discover that Ireland is fun, friendly, inexpensive, and safe. The countryside is a beautiful emerald green even during the relatively mild winters. You’re going to eat a lot of lamb and love it. The smell of burning peat in th morning and evening is fantastic. We ate mostly at little pubs along the way with an occasional fancy dinner. Wish I was being packed in your bag, you’re going to have a wonderful time. Have fun!
