Go to the wonderful Kylemore Abbey, Connemara
If you are fond of the unusual architecture, and you are willing to explore gothic monuments of Ireland, you should go to Kylemore Abbey in Connemara where you can spend an entire day relaxing. It is not far from Galway City – it will only take you an hour by car, or you can rent a bike and enjoy the ride in the nature. There is a gothic castle nearby where you can learn a lot about the culture and interesting history. There, you will find hospitable Benedictine nuns who can take you on a tour along the Abbey. Once you get tired from all of that, you can simply enjoy the beautiful gardens.
Discover Giant’s Causeway
Go to Giant’s Causeway and see the amazing rock formation which is the only site in Northern Ireland acknowledged by Unesco World Heritage. There are close-knit hexagonal stone columns which remind people of something done by giants. There is the Giant’s Causeway Visitor Experience, an eco-friendly building where you can hear about the origin of the place. Entering the very Causeway is completely free, but you will have to pay for the car park and entering the visitor centre.
The spectacular cliffs of Moher
The splendid intact nature at the cliffs of Moher is the reason why the largest number of tourists visit this area. The cliffs stretch along 5 miles of the Atlantic coast and are 702 feet high. You will hardly find a better view in the entire Ireland. Also, these cliffs appeared in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, so it is a must-visit for all the Harry Potter fans. Go to O’Brien’s Tower where you can get the most amazing view upon the Atlantic ocean.
Go shopping in Galway street
Galway street is the right place to go if you are into arts and designer shops. There are street artists all over this place and you can find great pieces of clothing, whether you are interested in high street or designer brands.
Dublin is a must see
If you want to visit Ireland, you definitely should not miss Dublin which is full of historical and cultural sights. You should spend a few days there, if you want to see most of the sights. If you are looking for accommodation, share accommodation is what you need. This is an excellent way to save some money while meeting new people who can join you for a couple of days of sightseeing all over the city. Grafton Street is full of positive energy, because there are a lot of buskers and everyone is so fond of them. Do not be surprised once you see a lot of people dancing to their positive tunes. Everything is brimming with flowers that you can buy. It is best to visit this street during Christmas when everyone is into the festive spirit. If you like history, go to Dublin Castle which was built in 1230. Chester Beatty Library is the place to go to check out the best pieces of art of Ireland.
Of course, you should visit the pubs of Dublin to understand the real lifestyle. You will easily bond with the locals who are willing to talk to you while drinking a pint or two. The best Guinness is served in Kehoe’s. Cheers! After a night out, you may want to consider visiting St Patrick’s cathedral. It will give you a peace of mind and you will enjoy discovering the gothic architecture.
Forget all your troubles in Killarney National Park
Ireland is home to one of the most amazing national parks – Killarney National Park. There you can see the tallest mountain range of the country, Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, with the top as high as 3,280 feet.
