Road Tripping Ireland: Drive on the Left

In July, I spent one week in Dingle, Ireland, where I participated in my fourth residency in my fiction-writing program. After residency, two friends and I explored Dublin for a few days, and then I rented a car by myself to travel around the southwestern part of the country for several more days. Of course I made a video of my adventures. Enjoy. You can watch it on YouTube or directly below if your web browser allows.

Ireland: the land of every shade of green covering rolling hills, the kindest and most welcoming people, and a shocking quantity of pubs.

Wonderful video of snippets of your driving experience in the Ireland countryside. Very narrow 2 lane roads, no shoulders, one lane roads, oncoming cars and bicycles. You probably had to contend with sheep and other critters on the road. And of course, driving on the wrong side of the road. Driving is a constant challenge in Ireland. Thanks for the driving video.

Thanks, Dad. I definitely had to contend with sheep on the road. They always have the right of way.
