This photo was taken in 2012, when my husband and I went to Europe to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Ireland was one of the places on our itinerary and we couldn’t go all that way without stopping by Blarney. While there, we made a point to visit Blarney Castle as well as Blarney House (pictured). It was built in 1874 and has been restored to its former glory. If you’ve never been to Ireland before, I highly recommend placing it on your ‘bucket list’!
