Connemara

Hello there! Today I’m sharing a few photos from a tour I took here in Ireland last month. Two friends and I went on this tour of Connemara and it was so beautiful (as is every other place I’ve visited here)! We went through the little village of Cong and it was so cute! Apparently there was a John Wayne movie that was filmed here so it’s gotten quite a bit of fame for that. I kept thinking how my dad would love to see it because he loves those old western films. I remember watching John Wayne films with him when I was a kid so it was pretty cool to be in a place where one of them was filmed! Cong also has this amazing castle in it. Ashford Castle, it’s huge, beautiful, and a nights stay is about the cost of your first born child! Hah, but seriously! I looked into booking a night when my mom is visiting this fall, but the price is craaazy! Anyways, if you’re looking to visit Ireland anytime, I would say to save up and try and spend one night there, because it really is amazing! A blogger I follow went there when she visited Ireland last year and has a great post about it (from an actual visitors view). Here is that if you want to check it out!

We ended our tour in Galway, one of the best cities here in Ireland! We walked around and took in all the beauty and then grabbed some dinner before heading back to Dublin. It was a great tour, until I got sick on the way home! I must’ve vomited about six times on the bus and it was awful! You know in the movies where the girls get sick and end up vomiting in there purse, yeah well at one point I ran out of bags to vomit in and had to frantically empty my backpack and, well, yeah. Needless to say that ended up in the bin and I went out a few days later and treated myself to a new backpack! The universe was not on my side that day!

Anyways, enjoy these pictures! Gotta love beautiful Ireland!

Ashford Castle. I looked into staying here when my mom visits in September, and hah I think I’d have to sell a kidney to afford it!
