St. Patrick’s Day Contest Entry: The Guinness Difference

In Win A Trip to Ireland by Leslie O'MalleyLeave a Comment

I have always heard all about these great things about Ireland. I’ve heard about the castles, the pubs, and the beer. I’ve also been told the Leprechaun lives in Ireland. I’m not sure how much of this is true, but it would be great to experience it all in person. There are no leprechauns in real life, are there? I guess the only way to find out would be to search for them. My wife and I love to travel and heading to Ireland would be a dream come true. To win a castle vacation would be even better. We have been in a few castles, but I’ve heard the castles in Ireland are like no other castles in the world. I can’t even picture how gorgeous they must be. Ireland has been on my bucket list for years, but we just never seem to be able to get there. Something always comes up and we just take a jaunt somewhere in the United States. I think Ireland would be a great getaway for us though. We could tour the castles, see the beautiful green hillsides, and sit in a small pub and drink some Guinness.

I am sitting here in my sweatshirt and jeans with a blanket on (because it’s only 10 degrees in Wisconsin right now) dreaming of how fantastic it would be to not just get away, but to get away to Ireland. I have had friends tell me how wonderful it is there. They say it is so nice and one of the most beautiful places in the world. They tell me they have Guinness but it isn’t the same as drinking Guinness here in the United States. It tastes much better. It must be awesome! They say the land is beautiful and the people are some of the nicest people in the world. I do not know why we have not gone yet. How could I be in my 30’s and have never been to such a beautiful place. Why would anybody wait so long to go? I’m hoping we can get there in the next few years, or maybe a lot sooner (Wink, Wink).

I just realized that 500 words is a lot of words. I guess it’s hard to write that much about a place you have never been to. I thought I knew a lot about Ireland, but I guess I only know a few things. I really need to go to experience it all to see what I might be missing. I’ve heard and read about the castles, the beautiful countryside, and the Guinness. There must be more. I tried doing some research to see what else might be there but I had to stop. All the pictures that were shown were just too beautiful to keep on researching. I will just have to stick with what I have heard and the photos I have seen and wait until I get to see this beautiful place first hand. Hopefully, the time will be coming soon.
