Welcome to Ireland! Have I got a story for you.
I had the opportunity to spend ten days at The Shelbourne, located across the street from St Stephen's Green - my husband was there on business and I explored just about every crevice of the neighborhood, napped, read books, walked about ten miles a day.
I like to walk, sit in coffee shops, book stores, and linger on park benches to feel the city. We had just been in the Rocky Mountains days before flying to Dublin. It wasn't a planned trip.
In the evenings we ate dinner, listened to local performing in pubs, and on the streets. We visited museums, rented a car to drive to Northern Ireland, Belfast and enjoyed a day at Ballgally. A town we stumbled upon that holds a special place in my heart.
