Where to Go
There is so much to see and do in Ireland that the perfect getaway is only limited by your imagination. Here are some of our favorite spots to inspire your creativity.
Dublin is the capital city and epicenter of Irish culture. A stay in the city wouldn’t be complete without a Guinness in the Temple Bar, and a visit to Trinity College, where a young Oscar Wilde studied.
Beautiful Cork is Ireland’s fiercely proud second city, ringed by the River Lee making its narrow streets and sites, like the Cork City Gaol, easy to navigate on foot.
This is Ireland’s Atlantic city and custodian of the rustic, seafaring tradition that Ireland is renowned for. A stroll along the city’s promenade, and perhaps a dip in the chilly sea for the brave, is a must.
While some will have you believe that Belfast is a city divided, all visitors here fall for the city’s small-town feel and numerous points of interest.
Ring of KerryR
This amazing drive of almost 200 kilometers takes in Northern Ireland’s Iveragh Peninsula, laden with hillsides, castles, stunning views and striking seaside roads the main features.
Wild Atlantic Way
This is the complete Irish road trip, covering the west, south and north coasts of Ireland. The Aran Islands are of particular interest, with the mostly intact Irish culture.
The rain in Ireland can seem, at times, like it is unavoidable and while it may sometimes be an inconvenience on your luxury tour of the country, it is the reason the island is lush and verdant.
The rainfall is what gives the attributes that have begged the name “Emerald Isle”. That said, conditions are mild compared to many parts of the European continent, with temperatures not fluctuating much between winter and summer.
Best time for sightseeing in Ireland
The best time to visit is from March to November, with the winter months prone to Atlantic storms. In summer the main sites can be busy, and like in other parts of Europe the shoulder seasons of spring and fall have the best combination of reasonable weather and crowds.
Before you Go
Visa and passport requirements
Ireland is a part of the Schengen Zone, giving travelers from a range of countries, including the USA, 90 days of visa-free travel out of every 180.
There are no specific health requirements or concerns in Ireland. A regular level of precaution is advised.
Ireland is an exceptionally safe country, especially in rural areas. In the cities, petty crime and robberies are a small concern and regular precautions should be taken for scams and touts.
Northern Ireland has historically had a problem with sectarian violence that has all but disappeared in recent years. Staying away from protests should keep clear of the bulk of the danger.
Customs and etiquette: the main language spoken in Ireland is English, with small pockets of the country retaining the native Irish language. General good manners form the basis of customs and etiquette in Ireland. Handshakes are recommended upon meeting somebody as well as a certain decorum when in conversation, including leaving out the topics of religion and politics and refraining from being overly loud or boastful, is appreciated.
Greeting people with a raised finger while driving on country roads is a quaint custom that is appreciated in rural Ireland, and when in a pub with locals remember that drinks are bought in rounds, so make sure you don’t skip yours.
Meals hours: the Irish love a full, hearty breakfast in the morning, with sausage, bacon, eggs, beans, and black and white puddings. Often some regional variations are thrown into the mix.
Lunch is eaten usually between midday and 2 pm, with dinner later from 7-9 pm. While cuisine in Ireland is usually considered to be hearty, such as a traditional Irish stew of lamb or beef, there has been a return to local produce and you’ll find many traditional Irish rural dishes have been given a modern, high-end treatment in Ireland’s numerous restaurants.
