"It has been a few years, but..." Ireland Warnings Or Dangers Tip by jengilpin

Ireland Warnings and Dangers: 123 reviews and 75 photos

It has been a few years, but the tensions in 1998 were high. There were towns we went to where we, as Americans, immediately felt unwelcome. There are some people there that feel the US stuck its nose in a pushed a peace that not everyone wanted.

Trust your instincts; if you feel uncomfortable, leave. I never felt that we were in any danger - just not necessarily wanted.

I must add that most of the people we talked to one on one were wonderful and very friendly.
