Happy St. Paddy’s Day

Ireland

I’m not Irish but I love Ireland and have been fortunate enough to have had some very happy holidays there.

It’s been almost two years since my last visit and I so very much enjoyed it – the people, the lovely fresh food, the history. The weather was also lovely – something that I was told was unusual for that time of year – April.

Rain wouldn’t have mattered.

To all the Irish and all the Irish wannabes, Happy St. Patrick’s Day from a great admirer.

  1. My son in law is Irish, when I took my girls there, that’s where my eldest one met him. On a coach tour we stopped off in Wexford he and his mates were out for a ‘crack’ in the pub. After a 7 year long distance relationship they were married and have been for 3 years and he lives here now. I ADORE Ireland…and yes to go their regularly to be sure to be sure… Happy Belated St Paddies to you hun xx

  2. We made our first trip to Ireland during a cruise last June. My ancestry is basically Irish and Scottish. My mother’s grandparents were born outside of Belfast. I fell in love with Dublin and would like to go back.

    • June – must be a great time to go! No Irish in me that I’m aware of. My mom was born and raised in Sussex, England and my dad was French-Canadian, but one doesn’t need an ancestral connection to love the place! I hope to visit again in the near future! Do you mind saying what kind of cruise you were on?

  3. We were on the Oceania Marina for 14 days. We started in Dover and then went to Fowey, Dublin, Belfast, Stornoway, Isajfadur, Reykjavik, Kristiansand, Faroe Islands, Oslo, and finally Copenhagen. This was one of the best cruises we’ve ever taken. We only booked one tour and that was a private tour in Belfast to get to the Giant’s Causeway but the weather was so bad we basically didn’t get out of the car. A bit of a disappointment. At all the other stops, all we did was walk around and enjoy the sights in the cities, towns, and villages. The small town of Isajfadur on Iceland was the most scenic spot. The background on my Facebook page is the town as we entered the port.

    • Wow! Thanks so much for the information. I also very much like Iceland and Scandinavia and have been before but your cruise sounds like it was completely wonderful. It also sounds like you have been cruising a lot and know what you’re talking about. I’ll definitely be checking out the Oceania Marina, thanks again! πŸ™‚

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
