We went on Irelands only cable car to Dursey Island. We visited museums to learn more about Irish history and had some great nights out in a local pub with music and singing.

The flexibility of having a vehicle to travel the south and west coast was great, it meant i got to see the rural parts of Ireland which made it an extra special adventure.
