Travel Ireland 

You've just planned a trip to Ireland and you're looking for a hint of what to expect of this small Western European country before you arrive? Well, we can start by assuring you that you will certainly not be disappointed to have chosen this destination for your next vacation.

One-of-a-Kind Attractions

With its warm welcome – the Emerald Isle is known for being one of the most welcoming destinations in the world – its year round festive atmosphere, its rich culture, deeply-rooted traditions, natural attractions, and many other unique offerings, this European destination guarantees that you will experience the most beautiful moments with your friends, family, or lover. Here is an overview of key things to do and places to see on your next trip to Ireland. 

Geographical Position 

Divided into two main parts, namely the island of Ireland itself and Northern Ireland, a territory under British jurisdiction, Ireland is bordered by the North Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Celtic Sea to the south, and the Irish sea to the east. It is surrounded by water and nestled in the northwestern region of Europe.

Oceanic Climate

Enjoying an oceanic climate throughout the year, Ireland is an ideal destination for a holiday, since it is seldom very cold – in fact, the temperature almost never drops below zero, even during the cold season.

While summers are mild, winters are rather cool, but there is rarely a frost. While not known as a beach destination, Ireland is rather appreciated for its culture and history; nevertheless, it has some beautiful stretches of blue water that beach enthusiasts will appreciate during the warm season. So what do we do in Ireland and why go there?

To Visit Dublin, Its Capital 

Dublin is Ireland's most important and lively city. It is also the capital, so, if you are planning a trip to Ireland, be sure to go there. You can enjoy many activities in Dublin, starting with visits to its museums, including the Irish Museum of Modern Art, which has a collection of some 4,000 works by contemporary artists as well as pieces by famous painters such Picasso and Miro. With its long avenues dotted with trees and the fountain in the heart of Phoenix Park, this is the perfect place to visit with your sweetheart, because the atmosphere is so romantic!

For a Taste of Irish Cuisine 

People also go to Ireland to enjoy its gastronomy. Rich in flavors and colours, Irish cuisine will leave neither your eyes nor your taste buds indifferent. The perfect place to taste it is surely Dublin, where you can choose from among its many excellent restaurants.

Chapter One Restaurant, located in the basement of the Dublin Writers Museum, is reputed to be the city's best dining establishment. You can end the evening by attending a play, a very popular art form in Ireland, and by visiting one of the many nearby pubs to enjoy a pint of Irish beer!

To Eat Fish and Drink Beer (Including a Pint of the Renowned Guinness!)

Among the typical dishes you can enjoy in Ireland are Galway Bay oysters, Connemara lamb, Dublin shrimp, and Cooley mutton; in fact, as you can see, each region has its specialty and it's up to you to discover them all!

In general, fish, seafood, and stews are popular in Ireland, so if you're into meat and seafood, you'll be in your element!

And let's not forget Guinness, the famous beer recognized internationally for its rich and unique flavour. A black beer with white foam, Guinness is one of the emblems of Ireland, so that if you go there, you absolutely must have a pint ... or more!

To Celebrate St. Patrick

Dancing in an pub like the Irish do will leave you with unforgettable memories of your trip to Ireland. The famous Saint Patrick's Day celebration, which takes place every year in the streets of the country on March 17, is also a real must for anyone planning a trip to Ireland.

All across the country, Irish of all origins dress up and join hands to celebrate the famous festival that honours the patron saint of Ireland. From morning to night, people gather in the streets to sing and dance to Irish music and drink copious amounts of beer. Irish pubs are full of activity throughout the day and mugs of beer are guzzled in the blink of an eye. On Saint Patrick's Day, you can also attend street parades, notably the one on O'Connell Street, which is especially fun. 

To Admire Connemara Peninsula

Among the many other must-sees on the Emerald Isle, visit the peninsula of Connemara, in County Kerry, which is composed of small coves and beautiful beaches that make you want to stretch your Irish trip out longer. The region's green and mountainous landscapes contrast with what one is normally accustomed to see at traditional resorts, but this is what makes the place so unique! It applies to many parts of Ireland.

To Explore the Ring of Kerry

Another must-see place on the Emerald Isle, the Ring of Kerry – a bus tour that traces the shape of a ring – will allow you to take in all the colours along with its steep cliffs, green trails, peaceful lakes, and colourful cities. This is one of the most popular attractions in Ireland.
