" ...that view alone is worth the tour. The prices everywhere are reasonable. The cathedrals are breathtaking. I know it always depends on what type of travel you want but Ireland has something for everyone"
I am far from a travel expert, or writing expert or really an expert at anything. I’m an expert at being a dick and not in the good way. Moving on. I may not be an expert traveler but I have been to my fair share of cities, states and countries. My basic list would include about half the U.S., Costa Rica, parts of Mexico, Canada, London, Paris, St. Lucia, Jamaica, and Cuba just to name a few.
I figured the best place to start would be Ireland. The people are welcoming, friendly, talkative, and downright hilarious. The cities are large and beautiful and not as overcrowded and annoying as you would think. The country side and beaches are down right gorgeous. I mean it’s seriously beautiful and something you need to see. The food was a little underwhelming but not bad. The full Irish breakfast was really good. The fish and chips are simple but good, and my personal favorite is the Fisherman’s pie. The drinks were exactly what you would expect. I mean its fucking Ireland. You are going to get drunk. Jameson is always good, Guinness really does taste so much better in Ireland and do yourself a serious favor and get Guinness Hop House 13 Lager. It’s so damn good.
Speaking of Guinness, when you visit Dublin do the Guinness tour even if you aren’t a fan of dark beer. It will be worth it at the end when you go to the all glass top tower where you can get a perfect view of Dublin. That view alone is worth the tour. The prices everywhere are reasonable. The cathedrals are breathtaking. I know it always depends on what type of travel you want but Ireland has something for everyone. It’s great if you want to check out the big city and on the contrast if you want to enjoy the countryside. You will want to visit the coast and the cliffs and these views will truly take your breath away.
It also is where Game of Thrones films often and is home to the best damn Game of Thrones tour along with the best damn tour guides in the world. You should be taking this tour whether you are a major Game of Thrones fan or not. You will enjoy the beautiful scenery and if you are a GOT fan, you will get chills seeing actual locations from the show. It is hands down one of the top ten things I’ve ever done.
If for some reason you find yourself having a bad time, just get piss drunk and it will change tour mind. If it doesn’t…who cares you are piss ass drunk. Overall, I would give Ireland a 9 out of 10 with the only thing preventing a perfect score would be the average food. You just need to get piss ass drunk, appreciate the scenery and do the Game of Thrones tour! FOR THE REALM!
