Visiting Ireland was my favorite trip I did in Europe. The country side is impeccably green and seeing the Atlantic ocean was so beautiful not to mention the gorgeous rolling hills. If there is one place you visit (other than Paris) it should be Ireland…also because your so feckin’ irish! (that’s an irish slang term, use it.) We did a 4-day Southern Rocker tour with http://www.shamrockeradventures.com/ . I HIGHLY recommend it. Not only do you get to see the entire country but its all young people from all over the world on the tour. We made some really great friends from Australia and New Zealand on our tour but the best part was all the Irish people we met. This tour takes you into smaller towns (than Dublin) and the local people are REALLY cool. Plus, they speak English and love people from Boston. The hostels the tour puts you up in are really nice and they take you out at night to pubs with great live music and this comedian show (Pa). My weekend in Ireland was my favorite while I was abroad, you really should look into these tours.

I took my dad on a surprise 7 day golf trip to Ireland & Scotland. We are both huge golfers, so this was a dream trip for both of us. Playing these traditional courses was much more challenging than what we’re used to back home in Arizona, but it was surely a memorable trip! I also enjoyed sightseeing around the two beautiful islands, driving through the tiniest of towns, and eating fish n chips everyday!

Oysters -- Maybe because Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic (cue cold and fresh water) that's why their oysters are so damn good, in particularly the Kelly Oysters from Galway Bay. The Irish Oysters are quite big compare to the ones from Australia, they are meaty and creamy, but tender at the same time. Apparently oysters are such an established part of Ireland’s culinary background that it has its own dedicated oyster season with food festivals all over the country.

The highlight of Ireland is the breathtaking scenery. The beauty of the southern beaches is often overlooked. You must visit Kinsale, Clonakilty, and Inchydoney Beach. The Cliffs of Moher will take your breath away. The live music and friendly people in the pubs is just as you would imagine. It's a place that lives up to its reputation.

A lot of UIUC students came to Ireland to celebrate Unofficial (U of I’s unofficial St. Patrick’s Day celebration). While I was sad I missed that, I got to experience the OFFICIAL thing on St. Patrick’s Day. How was the weather, you may ask? Well, it was
