30 Photos to Inspire an Irish Getaway

At the end of May, I joined a few friends from the States on part of their Irish and Scottish holiday. Their two week trip began in Dublin and ended in Edinburgh, taking them around Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Schedule wise, I was able to work out joining for six days in Ireland, starting with the late May bank holiday. And, although I wont be with them for the second half of the trip, I am planning to see them one last time in Edinburgh before they fly back to the States.

When I moved to the UK, road trips around Ireland and Scotland rocketed to the top of my travel list.

Why the Emerald Isle?

Incredible greenery, rolling hillsides, tiny villages, sheep and cows everywhere, and pubs alive with traditional music where the pints never stop flowing. Ireland epitomises culture, beauty and history.

Although I’m not a huge fan of holidays spend road tripping, I knew driving around Ireland would be the best way to see the countryside and explore small towns.


So, when my friends told me of the trip they were planning, I had to join for part of it. We started in Dublin, then drove through the Wicklow Mountains, to Kilkenny, to the Rock of Cashel and Blarney, then Cobh and Kinsale before heading north to Adare, Limerick, and finally west to Doolin and Galway. We covered a lot of ground in six days and had the most incredible time.

I’ll be writing detailed posts about each place we visited, it’s a trip I’ll never forget.
