Things to do, eat, drink, photograph while in Ireland

In the last decade, Ireland has picked up popularity. Whether you are a Harry Potter fan, a beer and whiskey enthusiast or more recently picked up interest in ancestry due to the popularity of DNA tests, North American are flocking to Ireland now more than ever to visit with beautiful country.

I was in the midst of putting together a group trip to Ireland and Scotland when Covid put a pause on all travel plans. But with a light at the end of the tunnel, I will be dusting off the travel plans - 2022 might be the time to go. If you want to stay in the loop for when more information comes out, sign up HERE. I'll keep your name for when I have something together.
