This was my 4th visit to Ireland, and my granddaughters’ first. I wanted to share with them why Ireland is so very special to their grandma.
As you can imagine, traveling with two teenage girls could be a challenge, so I asked Trish for her recommendation on tours. We booked the Signature tour a year in advance, and were filled with anticipation when the day finally arrived. There was never a moment of boredom, and the weather was “freakishly” warm as we laughed and cried our way through this beautiful land of our ancestors.
Some of the highlights we most remember were exploring as our guide played his flute, riding Irish Cob horses on the beach, hiking to the top of Knocknarea to have a picnic lunch with Queen Maeve at her grave, surf lessons at Strandhill and so much more.
The storytelling, music, and of course, the people make it more and more difficult to leave each time. A piece of my heart is still there in Sligo, so I have launched a 2-year plan to live there part time. People ask, “Won’t you be lonely there?” My reply is a quote from Yeats:
“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”
Thank you, WWIT, for a perfect adventure!
