Kiss Me I'm Irish

Well I am only like a quarter Irish, so lets maybe skip that kiss...

Happy St. Patty's Day! Although green is not my color, Ireland is my country so I am throwing it way back to 2012 when I visited Ireland and a full on love affair started. Equal parts rain and sunburn, lush green landscape and rocky terrain ; I have never been anywhere that I want to go back to more (and still haven't) than the west coast of Ireland. Although Dublin is so charming (and home to my favorite hotel), if you are going to road-trip Ireland is the place to do it. Passing Conor Pass, Cliffs of Moher, and hopping around the Dingle Peninsula will be a trip I'll never forget. Well, I  hope I don't forget because I want to recreate the itinerary ASAP.

If You Want to Know:

Where i Stayed- Powerscourt, beautiful area less than an hour outside Dublin. If you don't have time to do a full road trip but would like to get out of Dublin this would be a great option.

The Shelbourne Dublin, my favorite hotel. The most comfortable beds, great hotel bar. I saw Andre 3000 in the elevator (not sure if that is an actual amenity that they list on the website).

Emlagh Country House, I could not recommend this place enough. We literally stumbled upon it and stayed for days. It is in a cute town with a lot of great restaurants and is a perfect place to take day trips from. Such a sweet bed and breakfast!

Where I Ate- Saba Dublin, great Thai food in the center of Dublin

Out of the Blue, delicious seafood restaurant located in the town of Dingle with a cozy setting.
