A taste of Ireland, plus GRAND Social No. 175 link party for grandparents

A taste of Ireland

Jim and I went to Ireland last Thursday—by way of Denver. 

Okay, we didn't get to fully experience Ireland, but we did get a taste of the heritage, culture, and cuisine thanks to an invitation to the "Jump into Ireland" roadshow in Denver, presented by Tourism Ireland.

During the special evening, my husband and I were treated to Irish music, Irish dance, Irish food, Irish hospitality (and lovely accents!) as well as highlights of the spectacular places to visit and unique things to do throughout the magical, faraway island we hope to one day explore in person.

From all that we learned that night, Jim and I have chosen a few favorite spots, attractions, and activities we plan to enjoy when we do eventually take a trip of a lifetime to my ancestral ground (via my mom's side).

If you've been to Ireland, I'd love to hear what you consider must-see and must-do while there, so I can add your suggestions to our dream itinerary. And if you've never been—or would like to go again—check out Ireland.com for all the experiences to be had.

GRAND Social No. 175

Thank you for joining this week's GRAND Social link party. Whether this is your first time or you're a pro at sharing your posts, I appreciate you taking the time to visit and share and read. Cheers!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
  • Adding your link adds you to my weekly email reminder the GRAND Social is live. Feel free to unsubscribe from that email if you no longer wish to receive reminders.
