that's what i was thinking. before you bought the tickets, you should have talked to his family in order to see if you guys could coordinate presents (like someone giving euros, someone giving clothes for the trip, etc.). if you did so, you wouldn't have this problem. i hope that you can cancel the plans for the trip and get back your money. or better yet, go on the trip as well! good luck!
my thoughts exactly. OP said the mom's envelope only contained one ticket, at least, and there's no mention that she intended to go with him when she bought his ticket. it might kinda suck to spend $2000 on a trip you weren't planning on taking yourself, but at least now you get to spend that time with your boyfriend. :)

Who the fuck wants to go to Ireland?
honestly, you people are so damn arrogant. Ireland is a great place. I hate how everyone stereotypes all irish people as drunks. Most of my family lives in Ireland, and half of them are not drinkers, and I know a lot of people that are Irish and are not alcoholics. Yes, of course there are a lot of drinkers in Ireland, but what about the rest of Europe? Germany, England.
Thank you! Im Irish and yes I do drink but Im in no way an alcoholic! I hate the stereotype as well, I can take a joke but when people actually start believing everyones the same as the stereotype it gets annoying (the reason for me seeming so angry in other comments, sorry about that :L)
Okay... no we don't all drink a tonne... it is actually mostly the tourists who drink... And the rain is the best you just have to get used to it. Better than all that gross sun stuff. And as we need to divulge this all now, I am Irish 100% and I don't drink and neither do a lot of people I know because it's just not enjoyable for everyone.
Now you can go together!
wow that sucks!! you should have talked to his folks about what they planned on gettin though. ive had this happen many times, it just wasnt as expensive.
