PEOPLE Magazine Article

What Do JourneyWomen Love About Ireland?

Tammy Harrow -- Galway was magical and for me felt more authentic than Dublin Great pubs and music and the friendliest people I've ever met in a busy little city. Inishmore (largest of the Aran Islands) was amazing and beautiful until the last ferry left. I may have been one of the only women left on the dark rainy island.

Karen Rushen O'Brien -- I want to tell Journeywoman foodies NOT to miss the English Market in Cork: www.englishmarket.ie

Monique Lortie Kimrey -- I can't say enough good things about the people of Ireland. All were so friendly and eager to help and show where to go.

I Love Ireland

Marsha Mowers -- I finally understood where U2's song, 'Where the Streets Have No Name' originated. We were in a very small town - Dysart , County Clare - where literally there were no street names/addresses. You used landmarks - turn right at the big stone, left at the red fence etc. How lovely is that?

Joan Ritchie Dewar -- Adare, a village in Country Limerick can't be beat - the charm of Ireland blends with English-style thatched cottages and medieval buildings. Very touristy and a favourite spot for wedding photos. But wonderful!

Sue Farrant -- I recommend Caherdaniel on the Ring of Kerry. Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, walking, hiking, nearby towns are great, golf, rent a cottage!

Betty Richardson Comerford -- Check out hostels in Dublin..great for elders. Any pub in Ireland is great..including countryside..but let someone else drive! Take a thin plastic raincoat...rains a lot. Loved the Guinness St James Gate Brewery tour with 360 panoramic view of Dublin..went twice..great beer. Jameson Whiskey tour is good also. Kilkenny with it's castle is charming. Seems everyone has a B&B in their home..stayed in some good ones. Beautiful country & friendly people!

Nancy Carroll Miller -- I loved the Pubs in Ireland... But my favorite thing were all the fences made of stone. I couldn't quit looking at them! Ireland is so beautiful!

Debbie Ross -- I loved the scenery, food, guiness but most of all the people. Warm, friendly and inviting.

Mary Pat Lynch -- I bicycled in Ireland over 25 years ago and hope to revisit this Fall, so your article plans couldn't be more timely! Going to Ireland for me is going home; one of the most meaningful parts of my last trip was meeting cousins, seeing the cottage in which my grandmother was born, and seeing handwritten entries of family births, baptisms, marriage and deaths in the parish registry.

Gina Strickland -- I loved the snugs (small private room) inside the pubs, where it was quieter and we could chat with the interesting locals we met. Also, watching the World Cup in a pub when Ireland played Germany - and won. I'm not a sports fan, but it's impossible not to get caught up in the passion the Irish have for the 'sport. At Trinity College, don't miss the Book of Kells.

The Quirky Traveller -- The quirkiness of the people, their love of life and spirituality, ability to recite a poem at the drop of a hat (or glass of Guiness), gorgeous scenery, and of course, the rainbows.


Did you know?

In 1864, the year civil registration of births started, one in three baby girls was given the first name of Mary. Although Mary is still popular as a middle name nearly 150 years later, it has completely fallen from favour as a first name. According to official statistics, only 119 baby Marys were recorded in 2009....less than one in 300 new-born daughters.
