A few days after ringing in the New Year in Nashville, I decided to begin my European travels with a stop in Ireland. It would be my third time amongst the undulating hills and babbling brooks of this unspeakably genial country, which would inevitably prove to win me over once again. With only a few days to explore Dublin and the Irish countryside, my brother and I made the decision to forgo the chance to visit the infamous Cliffs of Moher, and make our way to Cork City and Kinsale instead.
So here is a deep look into our time in Dublin and the south of Ireland, along with a few personal recommendations.
