Romantic Guide to Ireland

By Mary Welch

One week last summer, my husband, my in-laws, and I drove (yes, drove) across central Ireland experiencing the rolling countryside, Irish folk tunes which echoed through the stone streets, exquisite castles-turned 5-star hotels, challenging golf courses, and the laid-back charm Irish men and women quickly offer to all they encounter. The journey provided the perfect dosage of relaxation and adventure, surprisingly accompanied by delicious meals at every stop. It did not rain in Ireland for 45 days last summer, which they humorously referred to as a “horrible drought”. We, unlike the Irish people, were thankful for sunny skies and slightly warmer temps during our stay.

We began and ended our trip in Dublin with stops in Galway, Cong (Ashford Castle), Doolin, Lahinch, and Adare (Adare Manor). While our stops in Dublin were enjoyable, my only adjustment would be to fly in and out of Shannon Airport because we most enjoyed the countryside over the city! My top recommendation is always accept Irish offers—many times, that is stopping mid-activity for a pint of Guiness at a pub.

Ashford Castle

800-year old castle & former home of the Guiness family, the grounds, customer service, and furnishings are next level.

Adare Manor

“It’s prestige without pretense and magic without nonsense.” That’s what their website says, and I must agree!

Town of Doolin

Here you experience the Ireland you read about—breathtaking countryside, folk tunes at every local pub, and hospitable spirits.
