The Ultimate Road Trip: Ireland

For many, the real Ireland is on the back roads. That’s the green isle envisioned when one closes their eyes, winding around its rocky coastline on tiny lanes lined with centuries-old stone fences.

For nearly two weeks, the team made their way across the southern coast, bobbing and weaving through tiny hillside towns all the way to County Sligo.

Travel Guide: Barcelona, Spain
