Make sure to try out Ireland's black and white pudding.
The weather is unpredictable
With rolling mountains, abbeys, interesting history, and a lively atmosphere, Ireland is a magical place. One of my friends from university was moving back to Ireland and told me to visit so I made sure to take him up on that!
Everything they say about Ireland is true– it is one of the greenest and friendliest tourist destinations in the world, making it an ideal destination for any type of traveler.
I wanted to experience Ireland’s beautiful scenery which is why chose to travel to Galway for a week. I was planning on heading back home after a week but was enjoying myself too much and then wanted to learn more about Ireland’s history, so I decided to travel to Dublin for two days.
I am very lucky to have flown during Ireland’s horse races, which was something that I had previously never known about. I was also blessed with only one rainy day while traveling there!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I wish it was warmer when I was there!
How was the food?
Chapter one restaurant in Dublin was delicious. I also recommend the Quay Street Kitchen in Galway.
What tips would you give a friend?
Keeping up with an Irish drinker turned out to be very difficult! Pace yourself!
Make sure to bring waterproof shoes and a rain jacket.
There were not many napkins or straws around, and many stores don’t give out plastic bags so I recommend bringing your own.
Booking directly with the hostel turned out to be cheaper than booking with an agency.
