In honor of the final episodes of Game of Thrones, we headed to Northern Ireland for a four-day trip, with plans to hike and to visit many of the filming locations of the show. We started with an evening flight from Luxembourg to Dublin, where we picked up our tiny Euro compact rental car from a super friendly team at Sixt, and then we headed about an hour north near the border with Northern Ireland, and slept at a local inn with shockingly huge rooms and super comfortable beds.
For our second trip to Ireland, we planned an open-jaw trip from the east coast to the west coast. We started in Dublin then road tripped it toward County Kerry with the aim to explore as many castles as we could find along the way. We flew in from Frankfurt Hahn Thursday night, arriving in Dublin after midnight. We immediately noticed loud partygoers outside pubs and lively crowds walking along the river that divides the city.
This episode is dedicated to Loretta - the premier travel journalist in the family - and an all-around inspirational person. Fresh off the heels of our Moroccan adventure, we jetted to Kerry, Ireland. After spending several days enclosed by a stone medieval labyrinth in Fes, we treasured the sensation of total freedom to explore the lush rolling hills of the green isle.
