Last May my parents came to visit us from Australia. Their visit was just in time to mark my first year in the UK and I couldn’t have been more over the moon when they told us they’d booked tickets! It was their first time in the UK and Dan’s first time meeting them, so a pretty big moment for all of us! We decided the best way to break the ice was to book tickets for us all to go to Ireland for a long weekend when they first arrived! We arrived in Dublin and collected our hire car from Sixt and headed straight over to the beautiful West Coast! We spent the next few days exploring the breathtaking Wild Atlantic Way, ticking off huge bucket list items like the Cliffs of Moher and stumbling across gorgeous unknown places such as Kinvara and Dunguaire Castle. The three of us Aussies and even Dan the Englishman all were blown away by Ireland’s beauty and had the most incredible time! It was also the perfect bonding experience for Dan and my parents (especially over a fair few Guinnesses)! Here’s a collection of our favourite photos and memories from our days exploring the Emerald Isle.
Ireland’s natural beauty and charm won us over completely and although our visit was short but sweet we are already planning a visit back asap! We would love to go for St Patricks Day one year because it would have the most incredible atmosphere and be so much fun! We’d also love to spend a few more weeks exploring more of the breathtaking countryside as we only got to slightly scratch the surface on this incredible country.
