With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I wanted to spend a day sharing a little bit about one of the most beautiful places our family has ever visited: Ireland. A couple year’s ago, we traveled to Ireland with Maggie and Alex. The girls were 2 and 7 months old, and it was truly a wonderful trip.
I shared more about the logistics of traveling to Ireland with two little ones here. We had a chance to see a lot of Ireland in one week. We saw some of the large cities, small towns and a lot of beautiful, green countryside. Our trip to Ireland was an important adventure for our family, as well as an important part of our family’s heritage.
We’ve continued to talk about the trip and the country since a lot since we left. St. Patrick’s Day is always a time we talk most about our trip and remind the girls of all the things we saw. For Maggie, the highlight of the trip was visiting a farm the day some of the baby animals were born. We got to hold a baby lamb that was only hours old.
Today, we’re sharing some of our favorite pictures from the trip along with some fun facts about Ireland, my favorite Irish blessing and an activity for kids (with a free printable).

Last, but not least, my 3 little leprechauns in their Irish sweaters. A brief history of their Irish sweaters: We bought Maggie her sweater when we were in Ireland. When my aunt went back, she brought one home for Alex. There were no tiny, baby sweaters to be found, so my aunt also bought back spools of Irish wool and my mom knitted Tommy’s sweater with the wool!
