  2. I have lived in Dublin for two years and have traveled a few parts around the country. There’s always something enchanting Ireland has to offer 🙂 And many more reasons to fall in love with the magical land 🙂
    I wish I came across to this blog during my stay in Ireland. I am aware that there are always great stories behind those castles, within the celtic music, among the streets; and a wealth of history in every corner of Ireland. You have put in a lot of effort in reliving it through your posts 🙂
    I am sure all your readers are grateful to the information you provide that cannot be found otherwise on the web.
    Thank you again for following me back.
    Warmest Regards
    Ankita
