I have always wanted to travel to Ireland. I have been motivated by the seemingly mystical landscapes I’ve seen in movies, read about in books, and seen on television. These greenest greens and the sweeping vistas would seem almost too Hollywood to be real. This year I finally had the opportunity to go. As a travel writer/influencer/blogger, I saw that TBEX (Travel Bloggers Exchange) was offering a conference in Killarney, Ireland this year. I might have been the very first person to sign up!
I realized that this was an amazing opportunity to not only travel to a destination I’ve always dreamed of, but to also hone my skills as a travel influencer. A true win-win! However, there was some initial trepidation that maybe Ireland wouldn’t be that magical place that I dreamed it would be. I wondered if I would be able to create a special Always5Star luxury experience. These were some of the questions I thought about as I planned my trip.
The fantastic news is I can report, without hesitation, that this trip exceeded my expectations! I was grateful for the TBEX conference collaboration with Ireland tourism (Tourism Ireland, Failte Ireland, etc.) to create some really incredible experiences in Killarney and the surrounding area.

Always5Star Final Impression:
Killarney, Ireland is a travel experience that will more than satisfy most traveler’s wants and desires. Not only does this city and surrounding area offer breathtaking views and vistas, but the history, the culture, and the friendliness of the people will astound you! Though it feels like a quaint little town, it offers a big experience. With my focus on luxury travel, I found it easy to satisfy my luxury tastes as well as my love of nature and history. This is an extraordinary destination and one that should be near the top of everyone’s travel bucket list!
I am very grateful for the Always5Star memories. I raise a glass to wish to all - Sláinte (“Cheers” in Ireland) to Killarney, Ireland!
