Number 9 on my list of 25 aims for my 25th year was to visit the emerald isle of Ireland. We took a long weekend starting on Thursday night in Dublin and roadtripped our way over to the west coast’s charming city of Galway. From the shiny black waters and green mountains of the loughs and valleys near Westport to the friendly music and fun of Galway city where we sipped ‘Galway Hooker’ (a beer, I assure you) and danced in the streets, it was everything I had hoped it would be.

Take a look at our adventures on this nifty little video I’ve put together – make sure you’ve got the sound up for the Irish music!

This is my first video for the blog so I’d love if you could pop over to my YouTube channel and leave a comment if you like it.

Lots more on Ireland to come!
