RE: Back from Ireland with alot of experiences.


Frank,

We enjoyed your trip and pub report! I liked it all and especially the photos. Now it's time to start planning for another trip to Ireland.

Thank you Michele. I wish I could start planning the next trip, but there are to many places on the bucket list. Next year we are planning Bermuda and California. The year after is Alaska. Then maybe. Not being retired yet limits our time for holiday's.

This trip was great, you and the rest of this forum really helped put the finishing touches on our trip. Next trip I would like to see more of the southern coast, Glendalough, Mizen head and then go up to Sligo and Donegal. But before we do that we may go to England and Scotland. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Thank you again!!!!

Frank,

I hear you. I've visited a lot of other countries and places than just Ireland. There is so much to see. I like England and Scotland a lot. Although England can be congested, depending on when and where you go. If you get to California be sure to see the giant redwoods. They rate right up there with the most wonderous things I've ever seen.

There is not a lot on my bucket list except for seeing the Aurora Borealis.

When you do get back around to Ireland again we will be here. And if you know of any others traveling to Ireland send them here to us. We will take good care of them.

Michele

It depends what you mean by England? There are lots of wonderful places and lots of, not so, so so. I recently described Bath as a traffic jam with Georgian houses and Stonehenge as a pile of rocks rebuilt by the Victorians. I do though like many places. Even the much tourist laden Stratford on Avon has a strange appeal but a base in the North East around Berwick on the Northumberland border gives some almost Irish perspective of small country pubs with tiled and flagged floors lots of Castles and green fields plus easy access to Scotland. Derbyshire is comparable to the Burren with its limestone landscape and the Church in Youlgrave had the same master mason as Kylemore Abbey (my great granduncle).

Having been dragged up in West Yorkshire and worked all over the UK and Scotland I would be happy to give you what information I have on a trip around GB.

Michele,

Yosemite, sequoia national park and the red wood forest is what we plan on seeing.

Tony,
As far as England I'm not a big fan of congestion so when we are planning to go there I'll try to keep your suggestions in mind and ask you about more.

I think that is what so appealing about Ireland. I was pleasantly surprised how rural, laid back, friendly and simple life is there. Yet it is modern and beautiful. You can take things at what ever pace you chose and not be in the way or be pushing someone else. I here so many people say they want to go to Ireland and my repley is what's stopping you. We spent alot of money going to Ireland, but that was our choice. We could have easily have spent half of what we did, but we wanted to make this a trip of a life time for my daughter. She is 21 and she will return to Ireland many times in her life time. She is already talking to her friend Collen who wasn't able to go with the other students that met us in Dublin. And they are trying to figure out when they can go. If our health holds up I'm sure we'll be back.

Thank you all again for making our trip a special one.

Frank

The banquet sounds like a truly immersive experience, starting off with a reception featuring mead wine and live Irish music played on a harp and violin
