Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do throughout Ireland that will help you make the most out of your visit. Below we compiled a list of some useful tips that will surely help you during your next trip to Ireland.
Explore The Natural Beauty Of The Country
The Irish countryside is one of the most beautiful areas in all of Europe. Even if you aren’t a nature lover, a walk through a green field in Ireland will bring you to a realm that almost seems out of this world. This natural beauty can be experienced in many different parts of the country and every season offers its unique views. Some wonderful spots for experiencing the scenery can be found along the Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, and Lough Gur. Another way to discover Ireland and its natural beauty is to take a hike on the numerous hiking trails. It will help you experience Ireland from a whole new perspective.
Visit A Pub And Relax With The Locals
In Ireland, there seems to be a pub on every corner. No matter where you are in the country, you will always find a local pub nearby that’s filled with friendly locals and a warm atmosphere. When visiting a pub, make sure to order a pint of Guinness and eat some ‘bangers and mash.’ Irish pubs are also the perfect place to meet people and ask for travel advice. Make sure to avoid pubs that are filled with tourists, as these places will supply you with sub-par food and drink. Instead, ask around for bars that are favored by the locals and you will be guaranteed a great time.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day In Dublin
If you are planning to visit Ireland in the springtime, then celebrating St. Patrick’s day is an absolute must! On March 17th everyone in Ireland (and many other countries in the world) becomes Irish, at least for a day. This is the country’s national holiday and also because one of the world’s biggest parades takes place right here in Dublin. You have certainly heard about this parade by now so there is no need to explain how crazy it gets.
This event will allow you to enjoy a full day of drinking and dancing which can be a lot of fun if done responsibly. So get your green clothes ready and head over to O’ Connell Street where the main festivities take place!
Visit The Cliffs Of Moher
If you are looking for an experience that is out of this world then look no further than the Cliffs of Moher. These cliffs are located on Ireland’s west coast and tower at about 700ft above sea level. They offer some utterly breathtaking views of the ocean, so if you enjoy seeing beautiful landscapes, there is nothing better than standing here.
When you visit the cliffs, we highly recommend taking a boat ride and exploring some of the smaller islands that surround them. One of Ireland’s most famous poets – W.B. Yeats even wrote a poem about these magical cliffs called “The Song Of The Old Mother.” These cliffs are also home to a variety of wildlife including birds, dolphins, and even some grey seals.
Take A Trip To The Irish Whiskey Museum
Housed in the world-famous Old Jameson Distillery, which has been producing fine whiskey for over two centuries, this informative and interactive museum will introduce you to the fascinating history surrounding this popular drink. You’ll be able to discover how it is made, learn some of its secrets, and finally, taste a selection of fine whiskeys. There is nothing better than getting a taste of the good life without spending too much money. And there is no better place to do this in Ireland than the Irish Whiskey Museum.
Get Lost In The Maze Of Magical Gardens At Ashford Castle
Located on the banks of Lough Corrib in County Galway, Ashford Castle is a luxury medieval castle that offers plenty of activities for visitors to enjoy. One such activity is an hour-long stroll through its famous maze which was designed by renowned English maze designer – Capability Brown. When you get to the center of this maze you’ll be able to see a replica of a Celtic Cross and if your timing is just right, then you might even run into the owners who usually visit either Saturday or Sunday afternoon during summertime and springtime.
