My name is Marissa, and I first fell in love with Ireland when I visited on my honeymoon. I’ve always wanted to visit the country to see some of the stunning sights such as Giant’s Causeway and the Wild Atlantic Way, so I was thrilled to spend a week here. However, I found that one trip wasn’t nearly enough to see everything on my Ireland bucket list.
My grandfather came from County Donegal, and I began to research my family more before my trip. After talking to a few relatives that still live in the area, I had the chance to meet them, see the small town my grandfather is from, and stay in the house he lived in many years ago. I even saw the ruins of the house he was born in.
This made me fall in love with not only the country, but the people of Ireland too. Since my first trip, I’ve gone back multiple times and aim to get back every year to explore more of this beautiful area. I started this website to help others plan their trip and find some of the best that Ireland has to offer.
