    Ireland

    Major Tourist Attractions: Cliffs of Moher, Blarney Stone, Dublin Castle, Newgrange, Guinness Storehouse

    Visit the friendly country of Ireland, where you can experience the castles, landscape, and drinking of the Irish.

    Ireland is located on the western edge of Europe and is just a six hour flight from the east coast of the US. It’s characterized by its lush green rolling hills, sheer cliffs meeting the sea and its prominent pub culture.

    Irish people are particularly known for being friendly and outgoing. They are happy to share a conversation with you – everyone from the taxi cab driver to the stranger sitting next to you at the local pub. The climate is generally mild with moderate winters and cool summers; though you can always expect a surprise rain shower at any point during the day.

    Once ruled by the British, the Irish people declared their independence in 1919. While the British influence still remains in some areas, Irish people maintain their own culture and traditions. The Irish even maintain their own language called Irish Gaelic, which is still spoken natively by about 300,000 people in remote regions of the country.

    Lodging in Ireland ranges from dorm room accommodations for backpackers to luxury hotels. One common option for travelers is stay out of the city to experience an intimate country cottage or mansion. Many of these cottages are historic buildings and they maintain large properties farther out from the cities so you can enjoy a peaceful night in a unique accommodation style.

    Here is a look at some of the adventures that await travelers to Ireland:

    • Stay in one of the famous castle hotels
    • Try your skill at hurling, the national sport of Ireland
    • Visit the Emigrant Trail highlighting the immigration of Irish people to the US
    • See one of the more than 80 lighthouses lining the rocky coast
    • Visit the town of Waterford and explore crystals making from the experts
    • Join a Bodhran class to learn the traditional Irish drumming technique
    • Take a boat trip around the iconic Sliabh Liag Cliffs
    • Tour the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin to learn about the process of making this famous stout
    • Kiss the Blarney Stone
    • Surf the 100 foot winter waves off the coast of Sligo in Ireland’s western seaboard
    • Hike the iconic Cliffs of Moher
    • Check out a pub crawl in Dublin
    • Discover traditional Irish culture and language
    • Visit an Irish whisky factory
