The Emerald Isle is one place that you must visit in your lifetime. With so much history attached to the nation, it would take you a year to see everything but wherever you do go you can be sure there will be plenty to do.
3 Things You Must Include in Your Trip to Ireland-sponsored postPosted on March 9, 2013
Friendly faces and sociable locals are commonplace in Ireland and only make your trip all the more memorable. And when you couple that with the rich culture, vibrant music and arts scene and the Irish’s penchant for a good time, you’ve got the recipe for a perfect holiday.
And with flights and Irish hotels available at such reasonable prices these days, there really is no excuse for not visiting this stunning country. But once you get there, whether it’s for a weekend break or something more substantial – just what do you do?
Here are three ideas to whet the appetite.
1. Visit Dublin
It may be obvious but the capital of Ireland, Dublin, is a fantastic starting point for any trip to the country. With its history of the arts, a fantastic reputation for having a good time and plenty to do for all ages and tastes, it is the cosmopolitan heart of the Emerald Isle. Walk the same streets James Joyce did, enjoy the passion of Croke Park or see where your pint of Guinness came from all in a day in what is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular capitals.
2. Take a punt on Limerick
Ireland’s third largest city is one of the country’s best-kept secrets and boasts one of the most beautiful settings with the River Shannon dominating its culture, geography and history. It has a medieval past that is fascinating to learn about and unlike other parts of Ireland has, in the Hunt Museum, one of the best collections of art in Europe. With Travelodge hotels in Limerick offering great accommodation, there’s no reason you can’t add it to your trip.
3. Ask the locals
Finally, wherever you are in Ireland, don’t be afraid to ask the locals. Not only are they friendly and good for a tale or two, they know the best places to eat, where to go out and have a good time and the secrets this nation holds that many tourists don’t discover.
