The Real Housewives of Orange County recently made a trip to Ireland and, frankly, it was a disaster.

The five women who star in the reality show came to Ireland in the hope of finding their ancestors and having the full tourist experience, but what actually happened was quite different.

Firstly, four of the women visited Baileys Farm, where Baileys Irish cream is made. As well as doing a tour of the farm, they were required to work on it and milk the cows. While many would consider it an unpleasant task, the women went so far as to wear hazmat suits while doing it. A bit dramatic, no?

Next, they headed to Greystone's because Meghan's genealogist told her she could be related to someone there. "Could be" being the key words. However, Meghan didn't seem to care about the odds of her actually meeting someone she's related to, and went around the town tapping people on the shoulder asking if their surname was O'Toole.

Furthermore, on their return to Shannon airport, the group got into a huge argument, leaving a 54-year-old Irish man named Brendan, who was driving the van, undoubtedly scarred for life.

However, they were staying in the five-star Powerscourt Hotel, Co. Wicklow, so the trip couldn't have been all that bad.
