Dublin’s City Centre features winding streets that beckon visitors to explore, trendy shops featuring Irish and international crafts, and of course, Irish pubs. The Northside of Dublin City is the home of attractions including:
- National Botanic Gardens
- National Leprechaun Museum
- St. George’s Church
The National Botanic Gardens features more than 15,000 plant species, a rock garden, arboretum, an alpine yard, and a rose garden. The National Leprechaun Museum is a charming museum that enchants children and adults alike. In the spring and summer, the museum offers a night-time tour for adults that chronicles some of Ireland’s scariest folklore. St. George’s Church, a Protestant church in Hardwicke Place built between 1802 and 1813, is considered one of the most beautiful in the city.
The pub scene draws a lot of visitors to Dublin. The city has more than 700 pubs, many dating prior to the Victorian Era. The Brazen Head claims to be the oldest pub in Dublin, founded in 1198. Another of the oldest pubs is The Palace, which was established in 1823. The Stag’s Head, established in 1780, features comedy nights and live music.
Burren National Park in County Clare features walking trails and the Dromore Wood Nature Reserve. The park is a favorite attraction of history buffs and features O’Brien Castle, built in the 17th-century. The park is open year-round.
The most stunning views of the North Atlantic Ocean are along the Causeway Coast, famous as “The Giant’s Causeway.” Attractions include Dunluce Castle, Carrick a Rede, and Mountsandel Fort. Castlerock is one of the area’s loveliest villages and is famous for its championship golf course. Castlerock features tea shops, pubs, restaurants, and a village green in the centre of town.
The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most breathtaking sight and are a “must-see” on personal tours. The cliffs on the Wild Atlantic Way, the world’s longest scenic route, have dominated the landscape for 350 million years. The cliffs are a UNESCO Global Geopark region and rise more than 700 feet above the sea.
Connemara in County Galway has a long tradition of celebrating Irish culture. The town of Clifden with a population of a little over 2,600 is the capital of the region. Clifden hosts the longest-running arts festival in Ireland, and the famous Connemara Pony shows in the summer.
Donegal’s beguiling islands and beaches are among its most famous attractions. Inishowen, where the Causeway Coast and Wild Atlantic Way come together, features spectacular mountains and beaches. The country roads are the ideal places for quiet horseback rides to enjoy the stunning landscape and colorful wildflowers. The seaports of Killybegs and Greencastle has fabulous seafood, but there are excellent restaurants all over the county. Some of Ireland’s most famous pubs, including The Front Bar at McGrory’s Hotel, are right here in Donegal.
