Sharing travel experiences from Ireland, here our authors will give you inspiration about places to visit, ideas for great accommodation and some personal accounts from their adventures on this green isle. Ireland, also known as the Republic of Ireland, is the second-largest island of the British Isles, the third-largest in Europe. Ireland is in the North Atlantic Ocean and is separated from the UK to the east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel. The largest city and Capital is Dublin.
A few notable places of interest in Ireland include the Cliffs of Moher, travel and tourism around the Giants Causeway, Dublin City and Castle which stands at the highest point in Dublin, and the stunning Powerscourt Waterfall, Ireland’s highest waterfall. The waterfall stands at an impressive 121 metres (398 feet). The “Emerald Isle,” as it is often known is synonymous with its friendly atmosphere and beautiful rugged scenery. This remarkable isle has more Nobel prize winners for literature than any other country in the world.
There are boundless options for activities, horse trekking, climbing, hiking, kayaking or countless other outdoor pursuits to do. With so much green space for outdoor activities the choices as boundless as your spirt and motivation and the coastal walks are spectacular too. All state museums are free to enter if you want some indoor activities that give an insight into the history and culture. If night life and bars are what interests you, you’ll find some fine Irish bars with traditional music and ales, including the famous Guinness on tap.
Flowing through the centre of Dublin is the River Liffey, cutting through, leaving the city with a north side and a south side. Ha’penny Bridge over The Liffey. very early 19th Century this was a spot that many people came to cross the river. One problem, there was no bridge, just the ferries run by a man named William Walsh, but in time and with ferries in disrepair he built a bridge in 1816 and was able to charge ha’penny to cross, an old half penny back in the day. Ireland has a lot to offer and plenty of the famous Irish “craic” (good time) and we hope our authors can help you find some amazing ideas or at least inspire you with a good read.
