Ireland Sightseeing

The Emerald Island is a destination rich in beauty, culture, and big nature. Combine all these things on an Ireland sightseeing trip, and you’ve got a perfect vacation. Whether you’re starting out in Dublin sampling the famous Guinness or driving off into the Irish countryside to explore castles and small villages, Ireland will leave an impression on your heart.

Dublin is a great place to start in Ireland. The capital city has quite a fascinating historical past. For example, you can learn all about The Troubles at Kilmainham Gaol, where many rebels were jailed. See the obelisk at Phoenix Park, and the War Memorial Gardens. On a guided Dublin sightseeing tour, walk along the River Liffey and hear about how this fair city came to be. Of course, no trip to Dublin is complete without a trip to the Guinness brewery, where you can grab a pint in the bar overlooking the entire city.

Just outside of Dublin is the Wicklow region, one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. In Glendalough (the valley of the two lakes), explore the sixth-century monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin. Check out Ireland’s highest waterfall, Powerscourt Waterfall, at 398 feet. Nearby is Powerscourt House, a grandiose building with breathtaking views over Sugar Loaf Mountain. See the Avoca River and the Avoca hand weavers that have been spinning their handicrafts for generations.

Are you interested in seeing some of the Antrim region? Some of the island’s most beautiful attractions are found here, including Carrick-a-rede, a famous rope bridge that spans some dizzying heights. Then there’s Dunluce Castle, dating back to the 14th century, owned by the De Burgo family. Whiskey lovers, you’ll appreciate the Bushmills Distillery tour – be sure to pick up some Bushmills for a souvenir! Finally, go see Mount Sandalwood, the earliest known settlement for man in Ireland.

Also close to Dublin is the Cork and Kinsale area, where you’ll get the opportunity to kiss the famous Blarney Stone. The journey through the countryside and along the coast offers some of Ireland’s most scenic views. On the west coast is Galway, Ireland’s second-biggest city with a large student population and a very lively nightlife and music scene. You’ll find a much more relaxed atmosphere here, and some fantastic Irish pubs. From Galway, Connemara is one of the most stunning places in Ireland. Drive through hidden valleys and green fields while you take in views of the Atlantic Ocean. Go to Ross Errily Friary, a monastery that has been standing for seven centuries. In Cong village, you’ll see famous Ashford Castle and Lough Corri, Ireland’s biggest lake.
