As a Sheppard’s pie fanatic, finding a great meal of it was a must on my list. Photo credit: Morrill, 2019

Finding it at an Irish-Italian restaurant in Kilmainham was unexpected but utterly delicious! Photo credit: Morrill, 2019

A fry-up, or full Irish breakfast, was also a must. English beans, sausage, egg, black pudding, Irish bacon, and toast makes for a pretty filling breakfast, so I highly recommend doing this on a day that you don’t have to be running around immediately after. Photo credit: Morrill, 2019

The Irish Famine was a four-year period during which a devastating blight decimated potato crops across the island of Ireland. As the staple food for most of the island’s population, mass starvation, and disease killed over a million Irish and forced another million to emigrate. Photo credit: Morrill, 2019

Today, the legacy of the famine can be seen worldwide through the spread of Irish culture, education, and familial ties in places such as the United States, Canada, and Australia. These statues can be found in a few places around the city of Dublin honoring the suffering of the Irish during this tragedy. Photo credit: Morrill, 2019

While visiting Stormont, the Parliament building of Northern Ireland, I highly recommend looking up. Throughout the building are beautiful patterns and carvings – on the ceiling, on the walls, along the pillars – really just about everywhere. Photo credit: Morrill, 2019

A government building for the six counties of Northern Ireland, Stormont has many symbolic pieces throughout, and is situated in a quiet, beautiful part of Belfast. Photo credit: Morrill, 2019

At the end of a very emotional, tiring day, a photo with a mural of one of your favorite shows is a must! Visiting Derry-Londonderry was an amazing way to conclude my time on the island of Ireland. Photo credit: Morrill, 2019
