I have roots to Kerry county in Ireland.
I very much want to vacation there. I once had a layover in Dublin for 12 hours. I loved it... Summer in the 60's, the greenest scenery I've ever seen, and the taxi drivers are hilarious.
My uncle once decided on a whim to take a trip there by himself. He rented a car and drove the coastal line for over a week. He mostly visited pubs meeting new people. He loved it.
If you ever get the chance to travel, take it.
