5 Top Things To Do In Ireland

Ireland is a fantastic holiday destination, with incredible changes in landscape in a relatively small area, and trendy cities within driving distance of remote rural communities. Here are five of the best things to do when you visit:

1. Go to Dublin

No visit to Ireland is complete without spending some time in Dublin – even if it’s only a day, although you need longer to do it justice. From the beautiful architecture of its university, to the General Post Office, which was the main post of the Irish Volunteers in the 1916 uprising, you can find something in the city to inspire awe. Alternatively, explore its parks, pubs, night life and fine dining to whet your appetite for the rest of this remarkable country.

2. Buy some Waterford Crystal

The crystal produced in Waterford is famous the world over, and visitors shouldn’t miss the opportunity to take a look around the factory and buy a souvenir in the gift shop. Walk through the factory, watching the glass being formed and engraved by specialist craftspeople, getting a bird’s eye view of the whole process. Find out how the apprentices learn the engraver’s craft and indulge yourself in a beautiful piece of crystal – the perfect reminder of your time in Ireland.

3. Play golf

Ireland is a well-known and loved haunt for golfing enthusiasts, with championship links courses and a range of inland courses for all tastes and abilities. Golf is one of the main reasons that many people choose to visit Ireland and a true golf fan should try and sample a couple of the best courses during their stay.

4. Find some ancient history

Ireland has plenty to offer those who are interested in all things historical. Its position as one of the most important Christian countries means that there is a wealth of material for the keen historian, including the unusual round towers that seem to have been a common part of Ireland’s monastic buildings between the 9th and 12th centuries. If you’re in County Kerry, don’t miss the Gallarus Oratory, which dates from as early as the 6th century and is a master class in building with stone.

5. Go to the beach

Ireland is blessed with a variety of beautiful beaches, from wide stretches of sand to tiny hidden bays. Take the kids and some buckets and spades, or a book and a bottle of wine and settle down for a beach day to remember.
