We had planned to spend a couple of weeks in Ireland as the last stop on our One-Year Around the World journey, but as often is the case with our travel plans, it just didn’t work out that way. Instead, we shortened our time to only four days in Dublin – and then jetted off to England for our very first pet / housesitting experience.
Since then, we've returned to Ireland for longer stays (and more housesitting!) and explored SO much more! We also finally experienced the incredible Irish West Coast!
