The first off in my “Oh, The Places I’ll Go” Series is Ireland.
I have always wanted to go to Ireland. My ancestors were Irish and I heard stories from my family about how they came over, the struggles they face, and I was inspired.
It makes sense that I have always been drawn to Ireland as a result.
Ireland is one of the places I want to travel to before I get married. These are listed in no particular order:
- Giants’s Causeway
Photo CreditLook how cool this natural structure is. According to Legend it is the remain of a causeway that was created by giants. Hence the name.
- Trinity College Library
Photo CreditWhy do I want to go to a library? If you don’t know by now I love libraries.Not only does this library contain some old texts and just happens to contain the Book of Kells. I also happen to love the architecture of the library itself.
- St. Patrick’s Cathedral
Even if I wasn’t Catholic I would have to make a stop at this church in Dublin. It is a beautiful cathedral and would want to attend at least one mass service during my time in Ireland.
- Powerscout Estate
Photo CreditI remember when I first saw this estate in The Count of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel, I fell in love with this house and I wanted to buy it. When I learned that is place was in Ireland I thought, ‘Surely this place will be mine.’ Than I learned it is now a shopping/dining/wedding reception venue.I can still dream of buying this place.Until than I would want to visit this place, heck I would love to have a wedding reception here.
- Cliffs of Moher
Who wouldn’t want to visit these beautiful cliffs.
- Blarney Castle
Photo CreditThis is a must see in Ireland. I want to go to the castle, kiss the stone, and hopefully get the gift of gab as a result.
- Ireland Potato Famine Memorial in Dublin
With my Irish heritage and being a lover of history, I feel I should visit this small memorial when I go to Ireland.
- Sean’s Pub, The Oldest Pub in Ireland
It is the oldest Pub in Ireland, why wouldn’t I want to go? I even found their website.
- Woodenbridge Hotel, the oldest Hotel in Ireland
Photo CreditI just think it looks pretty. That is why I want to visit it honestly, heck I would love to spend a night there.
- St. Patrick Festival in Dublin
At least once in my life I want to go to what looks like a an awesome party!
