Ireland Trip Reports - Post a link to your trip report here!

After seeing it on other forums and the increasing amount of people posting trip reports, I though a 'sticky' could be made where visitors could post links to their Ireland trip reports to make them easier to access.

Once this thread is posted, TA have agreed to make it a 'sticky' which will sit permanently at the top of the Ireland Forum.

So for convenience and ease of access to trip reports (past, present and future) if you post your trip report on the Ireland Forum, please post a link to it here also. It is relatively easy to do this - just copy the link that appears in your browser when you open your trip report and then paste it onto this 'sticky' thread.

It will take some time to locate past Ireland trip reports and link them here so it would be helpful if individual posters would like to dig up their own past reports and post links to them here, that would be great! A brief description and date of your trip as well as the link would also help others in identifying trip reports that may be of interest to the reader. This may also help them with planning their own future trip.

If you have pictures related to your trip report posted on TA or elsewhere on the internet, don't forget, you can post a link to them also.

This 'sticky' is solely for trip reports in order to allow people to read them in a separate place or to help facilitate others to plan and organise their own trip, so please do NOT use this thread to ask travel questions or post any other material.

Happy posting & reading,

Kesh grammy

Thank you for this lovely share of your trip report in Ireland. Wonderful details of your accommodations and where you dined along the way. Reading of your get -togethers with your family in Ireland was a magical and memorable read.

The trip reports/ journal entries below provide a lot detail about my 16-day self-drive trip in October 2014 -- primarily on the west coast. I was in my late twenties at the time and a solo female traveler. I prioritized time spent wandering around in nature and eating very well. I deliberately skipped the Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry, Blarney Stone, and limited my time in Dublin... instead spending time at the Cliffs of Kilkee, Ring of Beara, Jerpoint Abbey, and Sligo. I was never lonely despite traveling alone and I have the wonderful Irish people to thank for that. I had a grand time and Ireland left an indelible mark on me. I am incredibly excited to return to Ireland in September 2019 and again milk this forum for its wisdom as I plan that trip. :)

Greetings jamakakar,

I have just finished reading your current reports posted today and rereading your earlier trip reports, and I must say they are an absolutely delightful read. I see we were both travelling to some locations near the same time period.

Thanks for the kind words, KeshGrammy! :) I'm sure we must have waved to each other while passing on the road.

This is a trip report that is rather old (2011) but I think the essence hasn't changed. We were primarily interested in experiencing live Irish music in pubs as well as seeing archeological sights during the day. Total time for the trip was 9 days

Rough itinerary as follows

Flew into Dublin

One night in Cashel to see the Rock

Three nights in Dingle

One night in Doolin

Two nights in Galway for St Pat's day

One night in Trim mainly to see Newgrange
