Don't get me wrong, Dublin is grand. It is a nice place...but it was just so crowded! Maybe it was because St. Patrick's Day was last week and this week is the 100 year anniversary of the Easter Rising, but there were so many Americans in Dublin (and French people as my French companion kept pointing out). I did not feel like I was in Ireland. Then again...we did stick to the touristy sections...
We left Dublin on Wednesday though to go into the country. We visited the Wicklow Mountains, and oh...my...word...beautiful! Absolutely, positively fantastic! I have never seen more beautiful sights in my life. This is the Ireland people should see. Spend a day or two in Dublin if you need to get your shopping done, or if you want to get your drink on in the Temple Bar, but please, please go see Wicklow Mountains!
P.S. It appears I have someone other than family and friends looking at my blog! Welcome stranger! Thank you for agreeing with my Ree-cee's pronunciation:P. I am glad I am not the only one who says it that way!
