I took my aunt on an excursion of Kilkenny and Glendalough (pronounced Glen-dah-lock) partly because I hadn’t seen it, and partly because I wanted to show my aunt how beautiful and different all of Ireland can be. For being so small, this country sure is diverse!
It was the first day all week that it actually wasn’t perfectly sunny, but these places felt magical nonetheless. The tour overall was good for people who want a quick getaway out of the city (these places are just an hour from Dublin), though they gave us three hours to explore Kilkenny, which was so tiny it easily could’ve been done in two minutes. And my glutes hurt from all the walking. And I maybe got whiplash from sleeping upright in the charter bus on the rocky roads. Okay, enough rambling. Have I convinced anyone to trek it to Ireland yet?
