7 Reasons to Visit Ireland
Posted by Katie Thompson in Travel News
One thing that is undeniably a must-do for everyone is go to Ireland. It’s known for its beauty between the rolling green hills, gorgeous cliffs and coastlines. If you’ve never had the urge to go, you’ll feel differently after you hear our 7 reasons why it’s a must!
The Cliffs of Moher
These iconic cliffs are breathtaking! If you visit Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher have to be at the top of your ‘MUST SEE’ list! You feel like you’re standing at the edge of the world–but don’t get too close or else it’s a long drop to the bottom. A whopping 360 ft!
Raise a pint (or two) of Guinness at the St. James Gate Brewery in Dublin. This brewery brews over 3 million pints daily and gives you a behind the scenes look into their product. You’ll witness the brewing process and have a hands on experience pulling pints. Finally, top the whole experience off with a pint in The Gravity Bar, and be surrounded by spectacular views of Dublin.
Pubs & Beers
Sláinte, which means cheers in Gaelic, will become part of your daily vocabulary throughout your stay in Ireland. Everyone goes to their local pubs to kick back and have a few pints. The pubs in Ireland are warm and welcoming to visitors. If you are a fan of live music, you and your pint will be in good company.
Welcome home (and welcome back if you have Irish ancestry!) The minute you touch down in Ireland you won’t feel lonely or lost. The people of Ireland bring a smile to your face and are always up for a chat! They are some of the friendliest people in the world so don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice.
Seen one castle, seen them all, right? Think again! Ireland has more than 340 castles and each one is worth a visit. We suggest you definitely check out Blarney Castle to kiss the stone for the gift of eloquence, and Kilkenny Castle, the most visited historical spot in Ireland.
What comes to mind? Christianity? Snakes? St. Patrick rid Ireland of snakes and introduced its people to Christianity. If you can, try to make it to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day on 17th March. But if you can’t make it then, no need to worry. The party atmosphere of St. Patrick’s Day lasts all year around, so you are always sure to have a good time.
The Irish Coffee
This isn’t your everyday coffee. Irish coffee is served with Irish whisky and a thick clump of unsweetened whipped cream. It’s the perfect night cap or morning kick start.
Get out there and experience the things you’ve always wanted to while you have the chance & go to Ireland.
