Planning a trip to Ireland is special to so many people for so many reasons. The Irish diaspora has spread the fondness for the Emerald Isle right around the globe. Visitors from North America, Australia and other parts of the world travel to the doorstep to Europe trying to reconnect with their family roots and make special memories that will last forever. The beauty of the island and the many enchanting sites to visit make Ireland a tourist destination for thousands upon thousands each and every year. Even Hollywood stars go to Ireland and make memories that last a lifetime. This YouTube clip of an interview with Vin Diesel is a must listen if you are planning a trip to Ireland this year or next. As it turns out he got his first paid acting gig in Saving Private Ryan and some of the scenes were filmed on Wexford Beach. During the filming he turned thirty and Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks threw him a birthday party on location. Now that is a kick ass Irish travel memory. We hope to see you soon in Ireland for your next holiday and we encourage you to keep coming back to our site for all your Irish travel updates.
