In honor of St. Patrick's day's roots, I would like to take you on a photo tour of our trip to Ireland back in November 2008.
It was one of those trips that I will remember forever. It was so special and magical...we will be back soon dear Eire!
A view of what I thought was the prettiest place in Ireland...the Hills of Connemara.
Our first pub we visited was The Crowe's Nest in Cong where we were renting a little house...loved it!
E and her Grandad. Stopping for sheep of course...
Little E loves sheep. She sat on this wall with her papa for half an hour staring at the sheep.
Our new house...or Ashford Castle.
Shopping Galway City with Grandad!
The men surveying the family farm. Maybe one day we'll live on it again?!?! Please?!?!?
Yes, this was how I toured most of Ireland.
Sometimes the little one was in the front.
My Mom joined us for most of the trip. She is such a wonderful travel companion!
Of course we had to go visit this town...
Off to explore Blarney Castle.
OK, there's a LOT of stairs to get up there. Quite a workout with a little one strapped to your chest.
Kissing the Blarney Stone (despite my father in law's warnings of what the locals do to it at night).
F, deciding which beer to have that afternoon...ok, just kidding.
My kind of place, The Burren Perfumery. Loved it!
At Gort-Na-Nain. A vegetarian B&B. We had a lovely time and recommend it to anyone!
Well, of course Papa had to visit the Guinness Brewery.
...and he had to get a shot with the famous Molly Malone!
F wanted to just knock and go right in at Christ Church Cathedral.
While E was happy just crawling all over their beautiful floors.
We visited the famous Brazen Head a lot, it was around the corner from our hotel in Dublin, and quite fun!
They got to pull their own pints.
We will be back.
We're chasing the leprechauns...
