Last year I took a trip with my dad to China, where his family is from, so I thought it would be nice to take a trip with my mom to Ireland, where some of her family is from - her mom's father's family, specifically.
Our trip was pretty short - we only had four full days in Ireland, but we definitely packed a lot in. We had a hotel in Dublin, but we trekked out west for a couple days to see the beautiful coast and countryside. But Dublin was fantastic in its own right. I'll definitely have to stay longer next time, I feel like this trip was only a little appetizer!
