Ireland has been on my visit list for years, albeit not all that high on the list. One of my best friends in the world (JDE) loves Ireland. I don’t love Ireland. I don’t hate it – far from it. I had a wonderfully enjoyable time.
I believe Dublin is a City of “being” and not “seeing” or “doing.” You can see the top 10 things in Dublin in a day if you are quick. Take two days and you can see the top 10 things and have several leisurely meals and take a few pub stops. In Paris or London I have a big list of things to do. My Irish list included many great places to have a cocktail. Sometimes you just need a vacation where you just “are” not where you “do”. This is one of those cities.
The airfare was crazy cheap and the transfers were easy. I doubt I will be taking another trip to Dublin anytime soon – not because I didn’t enjoy myself – far from it, but because I have so many other places I want to visit. Dublin does not hold a special place in my heart like London or Paris. If you haven’t visited Dublin, GO.
Do you love Ireland? Where do your travels take you next?
