Best Summer Vacation To Ireland Ever

by on October 1, 2012

Over this past summer my wife and I went to Dublin Ireland for a 3 week vacation. If you have ever been to Ireland you know that staying there for less than a couple of weeks will make it hard to actually get a lot of sight seeing done.

There are so many things to do in Ireland, so many castles and ancient ruins. I think the age of everything in Ireland draws people in. There are so many castles to see and so many extremely old sites to see. One day on our amazing summer vacation we were walking down a trail, through a heavily wooded forest. We were about a mile from our Bed and Breakfast when the rain started, but since we were in the heavily wooded forest we didn’t get too wet. Eventually we found ourselves at a monastery that was from the 800′s. Have you ever been to or stood in a place that took you back to before 1000AD? The monastery was over 1200 years old and the only parts left standing where the walls and some of the head stones. The forest had grown around the monastery and over the past many years the area had been fixed up.

My wife and I had planned for this vacation for six months and now that we were in Ireland we were determined to have the time of our life. That was until we got a phone call from our house sitter who said that we had a burst water pipe. That water pipe was flooding our crawl space underneath our house. This was the last thing I wanted to think about while being on vacation but we had to get someone out to our house to get the problem fixed and hopefully the problem would be completely fixed by the time we arrived home in just under a week. We gave Water Damage Seattle Pros a call and they took care of everything including responding to the water emergency within just 1 hour. This gave my wife and I the peace in mind to continue our amazing vacation in Ireland.

The very next day we were back on track of visiting a few local castles and we didn’t have to worry about what was going on back at home since everything was being taken care of. If you are searching for a great place to vacation, then spending a few weeks in Ireland is highly recommended.

Are you an avid hunter but getting tired of the wild game available for hunting in your neck of the woods? Why not get out on a hunting travel excursion?

Just about every continent has some type of tour and businesses that will show you how to hunt the animals available in their home regions. Do you want to hunt big (non endangered) game in Africa?

The hardest decision for a hunting excursion is figuring out what kind of animal you desire to hunt. Next it is as simple as figuring out logistics like: “how can I get my hunting equipment out there or will the outfit me with the necessities?”

Do you love the idea of seeing big game right up close? Have you always dreamed of seeing exotic animals in their native habitats? Why not venture on an African Safari.
