Ever since I was little, I dreamed about visiting Ireland, especially Dublin. Like so many others, my ancestors immigrated from Ireland and I felt this connection to a country I had only read about and seen in pictures. In college, I even took a course on the history of Ireland, making my connection even stronger. I had this idea in my head of what I thought Dublin would be like and I really believed I would feel this immediate “at home” feeling as soon as I arrived. Sadly, I didn’t feel that way at all.
