My friends are better than yours!
Last month, I was so excited to have some of my best friends visiting us in Ireland. How lucky I am that I can say I have friends coming to visit me all the way from Florida and Mexico!!
We have built so many memories over the years, had so many unbelievable laughs and shared so many secrets!
This month, we got to spend 4 wonderful days together in Ireland enjoying the beautiful countryside, castles, pubs, restaurants and so many laughs!
These are some photos from our Roadtrip to Achill Island – close to 4 and a half hours away from Dublin. I had been there as a child with my family and always knew I wanted to return and this was the perfect opportunity to show off beautiful rural Ireland.
There are around 80 ruined stoned houses, spotted around the side of a mountain, dating back to the 15th Century. The village was completely abandoned during the Irish Famine when people moved to more urban areas or emigrated.
For a Saturday night at 9pm, it was insanely difficult to find a place that was open to go out for dinner! We ate in a little roadside hotel and then went to the most “Irishy” pub next-door… full of old men, the warm smell of guinness (euughh) and a 50th birthday party to which we were invited!
When we got home, we got the fire going and sat by it for hours, telling stories and laughing way too much.
morning afternoon, we left the house and drove around the entire island taking in the beautiful scenery while attempting not to kill the sheep which were everywhere we looked!
