Of course, going to Ireland just isn't complete without a visit to Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney Stone. At one time, visitors were held upside-down by their ankles to kiss the stone- luckily for me, I had a friend hold me and I felt very safe. Legend has it that once you kiss the stone, you are blessed with the gift of eloquence.
We also went to Dingle Bay to visit Fungie the Dolphin. He has been living in Dingle Bay for over 25 years, and is quite the friendly attraction for locals, fisherman, and tourists alike.
P.S. I love all of the bright colored woodwork painted on the buildings here!
