I just finished up an exciting week with my mom and sister visiting from the States. This was the first time for both of them getting a stamp on their passport, so I had to make sure to show them a good time. We went to Dublin and then took a tour of the west coast, seeing such cities as Galway, Kilarney, Cork, beautiful nature spots Connemara, the Burren, Cliff of Mohers and numerous castles.
When we got back to Belfast we did one last tour of the Northern Coast and the highlight of the whole week for my sister and mother was the Giants Causeway. As we were driving through the beautiful Glens of Antrim my mom remarked, “the potato famine must have been really bad to leave a beautiful, friendly place like Ireland”. I could not agree with her more and was ecstatic that she got to see the wonderful place I’ve called home for a year.
