Ireland and Northern Ireland were two of the countries that topped my bucketlist in 2015. I travelled with my boyfriend, and we visited some of his friends in Dublin and Belfast.
Flying to Ireland from Edinburgh was so cheap. If I remember correctly I booked my flights with Ryanair for less than £30 return. Accommodations were free. That is what I love about knowing different people from around the world, because it makes frequent travelling so affordable! Not to mention you get to explore the cities like a local, and go places you wouldn't know to go otherwise. I probably would never get to hike the cliffs of Howth, for example, which was a beautiful experience.
