In 2016, we took our first "tour of Ireland" with family. We flew into Dublin and then headed for the west coast, where we made stops in Doolin and Dingle (route pictured on map). 

What Ireland lacks in good weather and food, it completely makes up with in culture and beauty. There aren't many experiences that can compare to enjoying a few Guinness's in a local pub, while being audience to live classic Irish music. The pubs of Ireland are rich with culture and provide a great way for us to meet the locals and learn more about them. Outside of the watering holes, the hillsides and shorelines of this country can go toe-to-toe with the most beautiful in the world. In addition to the stops above, we explored Irish castles, the Dingle Peninsula and Cliffs of Moher.
