I was just there in June as well... Even though I'm from the UK, Ireland is one of my favourite spots to visit. My mum tagged along with me this year. Flew into Dublin, drove up to Donegal, which is about a 3.5 hour drive. Took mum to Tabairne Leo (Leo's Tavern), home of Enya and Clannad. (It was started by Enya and Maire Brennan's dad Leo, and is now run by their brother Bartley.) Very nice family. On Friday nights, they have Karaoke night, and Moya usually hosts. Enya makes a guest appearance every now and again. The food is excellent too. Drove down to Galway, checked out the shoppes. Stayed at a wonderful hotel Glenlo Abbey. Drove down to the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. Drove down through Shannon and Limerick, to the Rock of Cashel, then through Kilkenny, then back up to Dublin.
Very beautiful country! We also happened to be there this year during Dublin's gay pride, so mum got a chance to experience first hand. Of course, this year it was bigger than ever, since Ireland had just signed in their legislation in favour of gay marriage. There is a lot to see. Very green, very pretty, and the people are wonderful!
