Out of Office: Grand Tour of Ireland
Grace, a Trip Consultant from our Boston office, just got back from a traveling through Ireland, and we were dying to hear about it. We sat down with her over a cold pint of Guinness and got the scoop on all things green, whiskey, and Galway.
Trip: Grand Tour of Ireland
Tour Director: Gavin (learn more about this awesome Tour Director here).
Best thing you drank: Obviously Guinness, but I would recommend for people to try Smithwick's Ale (the locals pronounce it Smiddicks). Gavin also made me try Power’s, his favorite Irish whiskey.
Favorite travle snack: Cadburys chocolate.
Favorite foreign phrase you learned: "Good craic!" It’s slang that means "good fun," but people use it in different ways. Like you could say "What's the craic?" and mean "What's going on?".
Peanuts or pretzels: Pretzels.
Weirdest thing you were asked about being an American: I was talking to some locals at a pub in Galway, and when they found out I lived in Boston one of them said, “Oh! My cousin owns a bar in Southie!”
One word to describe your trip: Magical.
Favorite part of the trip: The Ring of Kerry! The moment we entered County Kerry, the landscape completely changed from rolling hills to more of a rugged rocky landscape. It was amazing to see.
Where will you go next?: I want to go outside of Europe, like Japan or Vietnam.
