We heard from a woman who shares the same Irish ancestors about research she’d done. She told us our ancestor, Henry Baylee, had lived in Kilkishen, County Clare.
Lisa and I decided to go visit.
Ireland is beautiful. When we flew into Dublin, it felt like I was coming home. It’s very green, just like the Seattle area where I live. The weather is similar – lots of rain.
We liked Dublin. It’s doing a good job preserving its historic buildings. We loved the art museums and learning about Irish history in some of the museums. I’m allergic to beer, but Lisa enjoys drinking Guinness in the pubs. We both have fun going on a tour of the Guinness Store House in Dublin.
County Clare is phenomenal. Picturesque small farms line the countryside. We enjoyed visiting historic towns and cities with castles, cathedrals, and good food.
