We had a wonderful time on our road trip adventure around Ireland. We had a chance to see many of the beautiful locations - Belfast, Giant’s Causeway, Old Bushmills Distillery, Cliffs of Moher, Curragh Races, Dublin, and the magnificent Powerscourt Hotel. Thanks to our friends from Indianapolis we had a different type of travel experience, spending time in hotels and living luxuriously in some of the more elegant places in Ireland.
