Hi there, my name is Marissa, and I’m the Ireland travel expert behind Wander Around Ireland! My love affair with this beautiful country began on my honeymoon, where I was captivated by the stunning landscapes and natural wonders such as the Giant’s Causeway and the Wild Atlantic Way.
But one trip wasn’t enough for me. Being of Irish descent, I wanted to explore my roots and learn more about my family history. So, I researched my family and even had the chance to meet some of my relatives in County Donegal.
It was an incredible experience to visit the small town where my grandfather hailed from, stay in his former home, and see the ruins of the house he was born in. This trip ignited a passion not just for Ireland but also for its warm and welcoming people.
Since that first visit, I’ve returned to Ireland multiple times and plan to continue exploring this enchanting country every year. I created this website to share my love for Ireland and help others plan their own trips to experience the best of what the country has to offer.
Thank you for trusting me to help you plan your Irish adventure, and please feel free to reach out through my website if you have any questions or comments. I hope that your own journey to Ireland will be just as magical as mine has been.
