Favorite Things from Ireland!

I am back from Ireland, and I really think I have traveler's depression.  Is there really such a thing?  I had such a great time over in Ireland, and want to go back and take my kids next time.
My favorite city in Ireland:
Howth, a little sea town 20 minutes outside of Dublin, on the Irish Sea.

Favorite Castle:  Malahide Castle

Favorite National Park:  Glendalough (Where Brave Heart was filmed).

Favorite New Sport:  Hurling!!!!  It is the fastest sport in world, and I was addicted in about 2 minutes!  Go DUBS!

Favorite Irish Designer, and Princess Kate's too!

 Had to buy this
and this....

and really wanted this, but it was sold out everywhere!

I also fell in love with Irish Jewelry!  

I fell in love with Button and Co immediately!  There is something about buttons that makes me happy!!!!
My husband bought me this cute necklace!

And how cute is this charm bracelet?!!!!  I got this for my anniversary!

I also fell in love with Jean Butler Jewelry and had to buy this cute clover ring.

My new favorite Irish Artist:  Simone Walsh

So while Mr. Walsky went here...

and here...

and here...

I got to take in the sites, shop, and relax!  Ireland was a blast, and I can't wait to see where I go next year!!!!

  14. We just went to Ireland last June. It was our last family trip before significant others join our family. We spent all of our time on the western side of Ireland. We meet relations, stayed in my husband's 5th great grandmother's home (now a B&B) and loved the country-side SOOOOOOO much. I do believe there is traveler's depression. We will go back! Thanks for sharing!
