After London, we flew to Ireland for a wedding in Dingle. We spent 4 days in this lovely country, and it was nowhere near enough. I am convinced that I need to come back to Ireland for a month with the whole family. The countryside was simply stunning, and it was so family friendly!
Whereas in London – you were hard pressed to find kids, in Ireland they were everywhere! Running through castle ruins, eating at the pubs, playing outside. Ireland made me want to rent an RV and travel around the country for a month – and you STILL wouldn’t come close to seeing everything the emerald isle has to offer.
Sewing Rabbit Travels – Ireland.
We rented a house through VRBO in Dingle for a few days, and then stayed at the Old Weir Lodge in Killarney. Both are HIGHLY recommended. Simply fabulous. And my husband rented a car while we were there in order to travel back and forth from the airport. A rental car is a must for getting around Ireland, and let’s just say – it was fun driving on the ‘wrong side’ of the road. HA!
Something unexpected on this trip was all of the local handmade textiles found in Dingle.
Lots of hand spun yarn and linens.
I wish I could share photos from the wedding with you, but I will respect the privacy of the lovely couple :). But let’s just say – the Irish sure know how to throw a proper wedding!!! It was 14+ hours long, from traditional Irish storytelling to songs to a proper Irish band, river dancers, rainbows, a DJ and more. Best wedding ever, and of course – we couldn’t love the couple more.
Ireland was a true treasure – and I am honored to have had the change to visit and spend so much time with friends in a spectacular country. I hope you get the chance to visit someday.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
