the emerald isle

There's something breathtaking about Ireland. Being half-Irish myself, I've visited nearly every year since childhood, either to visit family or to explore. This year we decided on Westport, County Mayo, a recommendation from my aunt for the picturesque scenery. It didn't disappoint - Mayo's mountainous terrain allows for stunning views and it is home to such gorgeous beaches. Just off the coast, an island called Achill was dotted with free-roaming sheep and home to the most beautiful beach I've ever seen, where the road ends and the sea meets the mountains and the sky.
