Mom in Ireland

October 16, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

So when we began planning this trip, we were given two very specific instructions.  They wanted to see rolling hills, and they wanted to eat dinner at a pub.  They were also convinced that Ireland is where you see rolling hills -- and since it is about a 40 minute flight from Cardiff, that was a pretty easy plan to execute.

Four full days in Ireland:

Day 1 sites and activities included:

  • Breakfast of Champions (coke, crisps and candy bars)
  • Newgrange where we were able to go inside a burial chamber -- mom was not impressed by the small space!
  • Trim Castle
  • Rainbows everywhere including an amazing double rainbow
  • Cutest bnb ever in the rolling hills and cows (first item check!)
  • Chinese food
     

Day 2 sits and activities included:

  • Feeding the ducks
  • Cahir Castle
  • Swiss Cottage
  • Eating lunch at the Shamrock Lounge (second item check!)
  • Athassel Priory
  • Rock of Cashel
  • Hore Abbey
     

Day 3 sites and activities included:

  • Driving to Dublin
  • Glendalough
  • St Kevin's Cross
  • Not the best bnb in Dublin
  • Apache Pizza
  • Famous Temple Bar district
     

Day 4 sites and activities included:

  • Ma'Penny Bridge (my Carolyn bridge <3)
  • The Rolling Donut (twice!)
  • St. Patrick's Church
  • Jonathan Swift's burial ground
  • Brazen Head which is the oldest pub
  • Dublin Castle
