I was so excited about this trip. It was my very first to a country in Europe. This trip planted the seed of fernweh in me. After Ireland, I simply had to see more of the world!
We went in February when Spring was just about to arrive. Green was slowly creeping in, showing a glimpse of why Ireland is called the Emerald Isle. The landscape is unbelievably beautiful.
I loved the castle ruins;
the charming downtown streets;
the very filling food;
