Ireland is a land of many treasures. From soaring mountains to friendly and honest people, I am not sure what I like best about Ireland.  The kind people, good food, spectacular sights and affordable prices, make this a must see for the most savvy traveler.  I really can’t say enough good things about my recent visit to Ireland and tour of the Wild Atlantic Way.

I went on John Eagle’s Northern Lighthouse Tour in August. I arrived at Shannon Airport and started my visit in Limerick. I read in travel guides that Limerick was unsafe and was even told by an Irish native that it was a rough town.

Fortunately, I only have only rave reviews of Limerick and good experiences to report. Delicious food and wonderful sights are plentiful in Limerick.

After a pleasant stay in Limerick, John picked us up from the George Limerick Hotel. During the Lighthouse tour, I was able to climb Slieve League Cliffs. The highest cliffs in Ireland. The tour encompassed many sights besides lighthouses.

We visited magical lighthouses, pristine beaches, idyllic islands, magnificent mountains and quaint coastal towns.

Better tickets online when visiting the Book of Kells.

It’s best to purchase tickets online when visiting the Book of Kells.

 

After the tour, I stayed at Trinity College in Dublin and saw the Book of Kells. The Book of Kells is a medieval manuscript of the four Gospels. It is widely considered Ireland’s finest treasure. My heart was filled with gratitude for seeing this treasure and for visiting such a delightful and beautiful country.
