From Dublin to Cork.
Clearly, actress Julia Louis Dreyfus adores Ireland and is sharing her love with the world.
The Veep star has been traveling all over the country with her husband Brad Hall. They started in Dublin, then continued their adventures into southwest of Ireland’s County Cork, including: biking in Bere Island and Drombeg Stone Circle.
In Dublin, the couple saw the Book of Kells at Trinty College, and ate at Chapter One – the European-style Michelin star restaurant. Located at the basement of the Dublin Writers Museum, the fine-dining favorite is now headed by chef Ross Lewis. Dreyfus and her husband stayed at the five-star Merrion Hotel which often welcomes celebrities.
Situated on the western part of Cork, Bere Island is known for its early traces of human occupation which can be proven by the megalithic tombs and standing stones. Legend says that Bere Island was named to honor the wife of the 2nd century king of Munster – Beara, who was the daughter of King of Castile. The island is also known for whales and basking sharks sightings. Travelers can swim, dive, then indulge in local seafood.
Also known as “The Druid’s Altar,” Drombeg Stone Circle is a structure of 17 tightly packed stones. Since it was excavated in 1958, it’s been one of the most visited sites in Ireland.
