Best location to visit in Ireland

Marketing DepartmentAbout Dublin & Ireland, College News, Exploring Ireland

So, here I am writing the post that I promised you about the Ireland best locations to visit, and some of that I can personally advise you to go, after my journey around this Country.

So, the most touristic cities in Ireland, after Dublin, are Cork, Galway and Limerick.

About this three, I will surely say “go to Galway!”. Everyone who goes there, fall in love with that city!

This also happened to me, I don’t know if it’s because of its atmosphere or its street artists in every corner, but it’s so lovely.

Indeed, I have to say that I’ve been so lucky when I was there because the weather was so lovely, that it didn’t really seem like I was in Ireland!!

The other cities are lovely as well, but I have to say that if you come to visit Ireland, the best thing you can do is go away from the cities (or spend just a little time there) and appreciate the real essence of the countryside.

The best way to do that will be, for sure, to rent a car and explore, to have the possibility of driving on the Wild Atlantic Way, that is wonderful – this has to be a must do here!!  For sure at the beginning will be very strange to drive on the left side, but it’s just about getting used to it!

Another place that is a must go is Cliffs of Moher, located in the West cost and that will leave you speechless. It’s just you, the sea and the cliffs (and the seagulls). Nothing more. If you’re lucky and get to go there when the weather is sunny you can also see the Aran Islands on the landscape.

Moreover, I was there in the late afternoon and I could appreciate the sunset there, that is more than amazing, definitely one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen!

Then, according to the general opinion, if you are traveling on the west part you cannot miss the ring of Kerry and Connemara. Unfortunately I couldn’t go there, but from the photos I saw it is really worth a visit.

Lastly, about Northern Ireland, where I haven’t been but it’s on my list for sure: Belfast and the Giant’s Causeway.

Belfast, the city where the Titanic was built, is a city full of attractions and things to do. The Giant’s Causeway, instead, is located one and a half hour from Belfast, and is the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. Strongly recommended!

Remember my travel advices when traveling in Ireland!
