Trip Report Ireland Trip Report: March/April 2012

Jump to last reply

Well, I’ve returned from our two week Ireland adventure, and Mom and I had a fantastic trip. We traveled March 24-Apr 6, stopping in Cashel, Dingle, Killarney, and Galway, where my sister joined us from April 1. My exhaustive research definitely paid off, and I promised myself I would post a trip report. I’m hoping if I start now it will motivate me to finish while the memories are fresh! This will probably get long and detailed- you’ve been warned.

For now, a few reflections. I still can’t believe how fortunate we were with the weather. Our first week was bright sun, blue skies, and warm temperatures. The second week cooled down, but only one day of spotty rain/sleet. Nothing that affected our plans at all. How do you spend two weeks in Ireland with no rain?? We said to each other many times that while in Ireland, no matter where you were, it seemed everywhere you looked was a photograph (and, indeed, I took over 800 of them!). Even driving down the motorway, you’re surrounded by green fields, stone walls, mountains, and more.

And the driving…well. An experience to remember! Yes- the roads really are that narrow. Yes- those stone walls really are that close to the car. Yes- the sheep and cows really do show up out of nowhere. Yes- the Irish drivers really do drive that fast! You hear these things over and over, but it still takes experiencing them to truly ‘get it’. That said, we really had very little trouble with the car. We had a manual shift, Mom was the driver, and overall, adjusted quite well. I underestimated how much of an adjustment being the passenger would require though- it took a couple days for both of us to gain a relative comfort zone. The raised reflectors placed on the side of most roads were my guide- I heavily relied on them to let me know if we were ok or if I was about to be driven into a wall. That’s not to say there weren’t a few close calls with hedges, curbs, or posts though :) All part of the fun.
