Ireland is amazing, if it isn't on your list of places to go, it needs to be!
Dublin: Go EVERYWHERE!!! St. Patrick's Cathedral, The Guiness Factory....a little commerical but the glass bar and free quiness makes it a must do! The Jameson Factory, we did the tour and then had a full dinner with real irish entertainment, lots of drinks, laughs, good food, and music! Trinity College and the Book of Kells, O'Connell street and the Post Office that played a massive role in the Eater Rising!! There is so much history you'll want to roll around in the streets to try and absorb it all. Lastly, if you're into some spooky fun I highly reccomend booking a seat on the Dublin Ghost Tour Bus!! It was a highly entertaining ride through Dublin learning some sppooookkky history. Getting to walk through a cemetary, learn of grave robbers, and climbing the 40 steps, it's a one night must that'll have you laughing and screaming.
Between Dublin and Cork you could visit the Rock of Cashel and get a glimpse of the Devils bite! Let someone tell the folklore of the Rock of Cashel and Devils bite! They are connected, and it envovles the devil and St. Patrick
Cork Ireland: Not as big as Dublin but there are some cool things to expirence. St. Patrick's street is a wonderful place full of great stores and small side streets with more shopping! There is a jail, the cork gaol, that is open to visit, that is an interactive self guided tour through the haunted halls. You can always catch a local Hurling game at the University Athletic Field. St. Anne's will let you ring her bells for a low fee of 5 euro, which is pretty cool. You could walk along the harbor and shipping docks, or pub hop every night and not go to the same pub. There are also places that are an easy bus/train ride away such as Blarney, Kinsale, Cobh, and Fota wildlife park. Blarney is famous for the Blarney Castle, and that wonderful stone you've got to kiss! Located at the top of the castle it is said to bring you life long eloquense. Not for the height queezy, you've got to lie down and reach out...over a loooong fall....to kiss the stone. A small town, but cute resturants, shops, and after you're done kissing the stone you can walk around the lands of the castles with many different things to expirence, including the witches hut, the sacrifical stone, and secret caves(see how far you can go in! Bring flash lights!) Kinsale is a beautiful harbor town that you could walk through, then take a boat out to the island fort. Cobh is the last place the titanic saw before it sank, a lovely harbor town with cute shops and wonderful museums. Fota is the resident Zoo, where lemers, monkeys and birds, rome free through out the park. You'll never know what'll pop out around each turn.
Soon to come... Killarney, the Clifts of Mohr, and Galway
