Ireland’s rolling green hills and medieval castles may get most of the attention, but the country’s rich history and spectacular destinations make for an amazing itinerary no matter what cities you visit.
Dublin is a favorite for its mix of old and new — be sure to visit the Guinness Storehouse. It’s a fun, relaxed way to get a feel of a country that puts its heart and soul into having a great time. Tip one back, make new friends, and take in the view. The panorama from the top floor is breathtaking. Grafton Street is a hub for café culture, street performers, and getting a real taste of Ireland’s spirit. Once you’ve had your fill of the sights and sounds, explore the buzzy area around Trinity College and visit the Killarney National Park and Lakes region, which blends verdant hills and the Emerald Isle’s famed Ross Castle.
The Rock of Cashel, the country’s most popular historic site, is a favorite among the royals and commoners, and features a tower that dates back to the 12th century. Near Cork, you’ll find the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle. Come to kiss the rock, stay to explore the area’s gardens, mills, English Market, and annual Gourmet Festival. Going off the beaten path is easy and natural wonders seem to be around every corner. Giant’s Causeway, the Aran Islands, and Galway Bay aren’t just postcard-ready, they’ll earn you bragging rights when they show up on your feed.
