What Do JourneyWomen Love About Ireland?

Evelyn Hannon

Our Journeywoman Facebook page is a great place for congregating to voice our female travel opinions and to help each other to travel safely and well. Recently I posed the simple question, 'What do you like about Ireland?' and it was if the flood gates had opened. Over 75 replies came in with suggestions for what to see and do but the overriding theme was loud and clear...

'I love Ireland for the wonderfully friendly, helpful, amazing people'.

Read through these kudos for Ireland and ... if you are at all like me you'll feel that age old travel itch. I guarantee that you will start dreaming about spending some time in this fabulous destination - Ireland.

Becky Berg -- I've been to Ireland many times and have travelled around a lot of it. My personal favorite is the Coastline of Mayo. Best beaches are on Achill Island, Keem Strand my absolute favorite. Most picturesque small city is Westport. The Burren in County Clare has the most interesting geology. Inch Strand on Dingle is pretty awesome. I could go on and on.

Bobbie Levine -- The Book of Kells at Trinity College in Dublin is a must see... also take the tour that is offered by the students..lots of tidbits of ephemeral information. just walking around Dublin is a must.

Gerri Keating -- Dublin's Abbey theater, Guinness, fish and chips..Bewley's, music...Trinity Colleges Book of Kells, Churches...people...only wish I had more time to visit more of Ireland...but, hey, I am not complaining..grateful for every adventure...more, please!

I Love Ireland

Suzie Whyte -- If in Dublin you have to walk down to Temple Bar, tour the Guiness Brewery and make sure you go to the observation area so you can view the city. Make a reservation at the Brazen Head for dinner and Irish story telling. It was a magical night.

Andee Anko Craig -- I spent the best summer of my life on the West Coast of Ireland in Kilfenora, Co. Clare a few years ago. I'm a student of Irish fiddle and went for the music, but got a whole lot more than that. I met my husband there and we return every summer for two weeks. The beaches are gorgeous (Fanore and Lahinch). The pubs lively and filled with music; The Roadside Tavern in Lisdoonvarna, Cooley's House and Marinans's in Ennistymon, O-Connor's and McGann's in Doolin.

Deborah Studwell -- Pubs of course, and the lovely towns of Kinsale and Dingle. Oh, and music in the pubs! Oh,and the pubs in Dublin too! Do we see a theme here?

Shirley Lum -- I biked Southern Ireland in 1988 at a time when Irish stew was not available at pubs, and you could pick-up a whole homemade apple pie for 1.00 from your B&B.

Paula Lozar -- My great-grandfather's family was from County Mayo, Aughagower parish. Nine years ago, when I was traveling in the West of Ireland, I made a point of visiting. It's a tiny village with a ruined chapel and tower in the middle of an ancient cemetery, and was one of the starting points for the pilgrimage up Croagh Patrick, a mountain that dominates the countryside. I also climbed halfway up Croagh Patrick, which (besides the religious aspects) has incredible views north across Clew Bay, but it's not a hike for the faint-hearted!

Sheila McDougall -- What was so special about Ireland? Definitely the people. We were travelling late one night and could not find a place to stay. We stopped at a inn that we knew was full and they called a B&B that was closed for the season. They opened just for us so we would not have to sleep in the car.

Tami Mitchell -- I traveled to Ireland with my daughter's step dancing troupe. They got to dance with another troupe from Waterford and it was so great to see them dancing the same jigs and reels together in their bright costumes!

Lisa Schulze-Perez -- I loved the 40 shades of green in summer...the seaside villages, the history, the architecture that spans the centuries, and the joie de vivre of the people.
