Vacation ideas

Speaking of vacations

Have any of you ever vacationed or lived in Ireland?

My dream (with which my DH is cheerfully going along so far) is to go to Ireland, and we’ve decided to put a certain amount into various types of savings so that, once everything but my student loan and the house are paid off, we can take the family to Ireland.

That should be in about 4-5 years (it’ll take that long to save) but possibly sooner.

I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions, discouragements, etc.
