In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and my Irish heritage, I’ve decided to post a short photo essay from my first trip to Ireland. While my travel companions and I did quite a bit of adventuring, I quickly fell in love with the Dingle Peninsula. Not only is this my favorite area of Ireland, but one of my favorite places on earth. The raw beauty and friendly villagers make this area a must-stop if you ever find yourself in Ireland.
