7 Reasons Not to Visit Ireland

Share This:

At the end of December 2016, I impulsively booked a trip to Ireland for St. Patrick's Day. Besides the incredible experience of getting to visit my ancestral homelands, I had the trip of a lifetime getting to experience Galway, Killarney, and Dublin (on St. Patrick's Day no less). Here's "7 Reasons Not to Visit Ireland" because if you suck, we don't want you there.

You don't like super friendly locals who are always down for a good time

Hands down Irish people are the nicest people you can come across and are always willing to help you whether it be directions or showing you to the best pub in Temple Bar.

You only like ordering fancy mixed drinks

No one cares about you and your tequila sunrise. If you order a mixed drink the local Irish bartender will just look at you like you’re an idiot and pour you a shot of whatever is closest. Oh, and don’t even think about ordering an “Irish Car Bomb.”

You don’t like raw natural beauty

Maybe you should just stay at home and inside with blackout curtains and no fresh air.

You prefer your coffee to be non-spiked at 9 am

Jameson and Bailey’s for breakfast? Don’t mind if we do. Also, it's not alcoholism until you go back home.

You don't like beef or potatoes incorporated into every single meal

You will every variety of potatoes possible. Including taco fries when you’re drunk at 2 am in Galway at Hungry Bear.

You like your countryside to be flat and brown

Again, maybe you should just stay at home.

You don't want to go somewhere that has great pun material for Instagram captions

"Irish today, hungover tomorrow."

"Irish you were beer."

"Waiting on pinch charming."

The possibilities are endless, and should you want more puns I happen to have a list of 34…

Check out the gallery of my trip below! Don't forget to give me your reasons not to go to Ireland in the comments.
