In 2007 I had a really nice trip to southern/central Ireland with two friends, using a rented car and moving from one place to another, sleeping in b&b houses, visiting several places.
The best part of the trip, in my opinion, was landing to Aran islands with a small plane: really a magic places, full of charm.
When I was there I bought the classic Aran-style sweater: true smelling sheep wool... really nice souvenir from Ireland.
Now, problem is that my Aran sweater is too warm for Italian winter temperature ;-)
Last weekend, finally, I had the chance to wear it because I went to Christmas street markets in northern cold towns...
