Ireland 2017: The Irish Trip

Categories europe, trip

This was a journey through a fantastic land, a magnificent people and a passionate culture. The Country is amazingly reachable with a lush vegetation and great land for agriculture. A perfect place to breed horses, which makes Ireland a place that is culturally linked to the horse culture and industry. Our Ireland tour was a set of events on the countryside, horses and a quick visit to Dublin.

Day 1

On the first day, we woke up at dawn and then went to our rental cars on the way to the W. P. Mullins training centre at Closutton, Muine Bheag in the County of Carlow. As soon as we arrived, we were petrified with all the excellent conditions for the training of racehorses of that training centre. Owned by Willie Mullins, an Irish racehorse trainer and former jockey from Goresbridge, County Kilkenny, a very friendly and nice person, who received us very well as a guest.

Then we went to one of Ireland’s most important horse breeders, Ballylinch Stud, where it was possible to see all their stallions and their foals, as well as their mares. A whole level of authenticity and perfection, absolutely incredible.

Day 2

On the second day, like the famous Dublin Horse Show, where we saw a fantastic tournament with the best obstacle riders in the world. The horse shows prior to the tournament were just as fabulous as the tournament.

Day 3

Finally, on the third day, we went to the Guinness Storehouse (Museum) in the morning. Here we have seen the whole history of Irish beer and the way it shaped the culture in this country. We have also seen how beer is produced and its methods of purification before consumption. At the end, we passed the store where I got a mug.

During the afternoon we took a quick tour of Dublin to see the city. We walked from the InterContinental Hotel through various parts of the city, from Parliament to Dublin Castle, back and past Trinity College again.
