Ah, the luck of the Irish, or so I hear all the time. While I’ve never been to Ireland, I’ve always wanted to go.
Rich in history, “The Emerald Isle” has always been on my dream destination list. From the Cliffs of Moher to the Blarney Castle, known for its “Blarney Stone.” Tradition is that if the Blarney Stone is kissed, one will be blessed with great eloquence, better known as “the gift of the gab.” Yeah, because I need that, right?
I’d love to take in the Kilkenny, one of Ireland’s favorite tourist spots with its beautiful buildings, the Norman Castle, and the numerous festivals including the Arts Festival and Rhythm and Roots Festival. And of course, I’d love to visit Co. Donegal, a part of the country that is very traditional with plenty of low stone walls, thatched roof houses, rugged hills, cliffs and golden sand beaches. Aside from all those, I have an absolute love (and weakness for) the Irish brogue.
For those of you who are going out tonight to celebrate, have a safe and fun night! I’ll be wrapped up in a blanket on my couch reading.
