Ireland with kids was lovely. But Ireland for us was complicated.
As I wrote upon returning home from vacation last summer, the Emerald Isle proved something of a cataclysmic glitch in our epic U.K. holiday and, ultimately, in our marriage. We overcame, barely, and have grown significantly as people and as a couple since, and we will someday return to Ireland with our kids and with lessons learned. I owe my wife and our daughters and Irish do-over.
Visiting the strange, moon-like Burren during our week in Ireland is a memory polished like a stone. One of the highlights that has become brighter with age and distance.
