Ireland is in an age of economic growth and prosperity that has transformed Dublin into one of the leading cities in Europe. Outside of Dublin though, Ireland maintains its traditional character, culture, and charm. The landscape is very picturesque in many areas.

Dublin is a culturally vibrant city with its trendy Temple Bar district, the retail-oriented Grafton Street, and (of course) the Guinness Factory. There are many Dublin attractions packed with history too, with the famous Trinity College (educating Ireland’s finest) and the fantastically illustrated Book of Kells. Dublin also has a fine National Museum and its own Castle, as well as the historic Kilmainham Gaol.

In the Irish countryside, visitors can experience traditional Irish life (as well as archaeological sites and natural beauty) in places such as the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. Partake in pub crawls (there is a very high pub to person ratio) and listen to traditional folk music. A pint of Guinness anyone?!

The Cliffs of Moher are one of the top Irish attractions with its towering vertical 200 meter high cliffs and outstanding views. Parts of the cliffs may fall into the waters below occasionally, but that doesn’t prevent visitors from going to the edge and peering down at the depths. Other attractions include Kilkenny and Blarney Castles (with its famous Blarney Stone), the Neolithic tombs and standing stones of Bru na Boinne, and the beautiful Killarney National Park.

You can also explore some of the little populated areas of Ireland, where you can find scattered stone houses that were abandoned during the horrendous mid 19th century Great Irish Famine.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Ireland
Take your time to explore Country Clare.
The Cliffs of Moher are very touristic with lots of people, the not so famous cliffs (south) of Killrush are also nice to visit on a rainy or stormy day!
Try visiting the Aran Island (in particular Inishmore). Go by boat (from Doolin) and rent a bike to explore the islands.
Go walking in the Burren or drive through with your car. Take a few moments to enjoy the mistic Poulnabrone Dolmen.

The opposite of Geneva: doesn't boast but is a beautiful little city. Plenty to do, I recommend the National Gallery and lunch at nearby Stephen's Green. You can always visit a pub, go to a movie or shop. Don't forget to look at the famous central post office where the 1916 Easter Rising took place. For history: see the cathedral (now Anglican) and the pro-cathedral (Catholic, still waiting to get the cathedral back). Also, Dublin is the place where Händel first performed his famous "Messiah" And don't forget the Newman University Chapel, as well as the Book of Kells at Trinity College!

  1. When you are in Dublin stay in busy areas unless you have somebody with you or know the area.
  2. If you need help just ask someone they are usually very helpful
  3. There are many ways to get around the city so if you missed your bus, train etc. don't worry you could hop on a Dart, Luas or even get a Taxi. No bother.
  4. Watch out for street performers on Grafton St. they are very good usually.
  5. Watch your bags on the Luas . Pickpockets usually take that form of transport because it is so cheap.
