II originally started writing this post when I saw this video from a Canadian couple who spent 3 weeks in Ireland and then put together 19 minute video of their recordings and pictures. It’s beautiful and if I’m completely honest it made me cry a little. It reminded of how wonderful Ireland is, all the different things to do and places to see. This week, Failte Ireland released their #IrelandInspires video and it reminded me of this post.
These videos brought back the idea local tourism, how I, along with my boyfriend, friends and family, have tried experiencing local attractions, things we wouldn’t normally visit because it’s too close to us, and other places around Ireland. I thought I’d link to some of the posts I’ve made so far about this.
Staycation Post. First time I posted about places I’d visited in Ireland, this one dealing with a weekend away to the sunny South East. Dungarven, Mahon Falls, Cahir Castle and Rock of Cashel all got visited that weekend.
Local Tourist Part 1. In this post I talk about my boat tour along the bottom of The Cliffs of Moher.
Miss Courtney’s Tearooms, Killarney. A whole post on the beautiful Miss Courtney’s Tearooms in Killarney.
Guinness Store House in Dublin on a glorious sunny day
Aran Islands on another glorious day (see, we do get good weather in Ireland at times!)
Just showing these posts makes me realise I have so many more experiences to share! So hopefully I’ll finally get around to making those blog posts in the future, there’s no reason why I shouldn’t have already!
Some other pictures I have that aren’t in any other posts
Sunset in Lahinch, Co.Clare; Bluebells in my uncle’s garden
Giant’s Causeway, Co.Antrim; Costa Del Clahane Summer 2013 Heatwave

Finally, I leave you with a post I made back in 2011 for St. Patrick’s Day and Why It’s Great to be Irish.
Have a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day everyone. I’m looking to going home for a visit in a few days. Taytos, here I come!
