Ireland is one of the most exciting, beautiful places on earth, and has been on my bucket list since I was young. The only problem with Ireland? Getting there.

As a college student with crippling debt following me to my grave, the thought of travel is something that would only happen in another lifetime(s). But the itch to travel is just too hard not to scratch, and I’m at the point of being put in a straight jacket. To prevent this from happening, I am traveling to Ireland in May of 2017. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

Follow me on my quest to gather the most pertinent information on all things Ireland: hotels, locals, taxis, food, drinks (many of those), cliffs, islands, rolling hills, sheep, castles, and whatever else I happen upon. I will take you on my journey of research, what I’m doing to make sure I get to Ireland (in 8 months), how I’m getting there, where I’m staying, what I’m eating and drinking, the historical sites and the holes in the walls that I will experience once I’m there. I will research, choose, research again, choose again, and ultimately come up with the best possible trip I can muster up.
