Accommodations for your vacation in Ireland
Dublin, Ireland's charming capital, faces directly out to sea and is framed on the horizon by the Wicklow Mountains. It is the quintessential pub town, bustling and hospitable, an ancient Viking city with a celebrated literary tradition, of which Joyce, Beckett, and Jonathan Swift are notable.
Although Dublin is the largest and most populated city in Ireland, it has remained a tourist resort with an unexaggerated pace. If you choose to spend your holiday in Ireland, then you are in for a trip full of interesting tourist itineraries. Dublin is divided into two parts thanks to the River Liffey, which is crossed by the famous Ha'penny Bridge: the north bank is suitable for those who want to shop, here in fact are the commercial streets Talbot Street and Henry Street; the south bank is perfect, on the other hand, for those seeking a more sophisticated vacation, here in fact is Grafton Street with its luxury stores. No matter what group of people you belong to, you absolutely cannot miss a visit to Temple Bar and the Guinness Storehouse Beer Museum dedicated to dark beer. On the roof of the museum is the Gravity Bar, which is the highest bar in all of 'Ireland and from where you can admire the magnificent capital. Another important attraction, especially for families, is Phoenix Park, which houses the Dublin zoo inside.
Another splendid city that we recommend visiting is definitely Limerick, in the Shannon region, one of the oldest in the country and an important center of the Irish economy. Archaeological excavations have unearthed the remains of the ancient Viking settlements that gave rise to the city, while the city's main historical sights, including the solemn King John's Castle, are brought together on King Island, located in the center of the city. There are also interesting museums to visit such as the Craggaunowen Open Air Museum, the De Valera Biographical Museum, the 19th century Kilmallock Museum, and the museum that tells the city's history namely the Limerick Museum. For families, a stroll through the Casteltroy Neighbourhood Park, equipped with a children's play area, where skateboarding can also be enjoyed.
Another interesting destination is also the picturesque Cork, a city that offers plenty to visit despite its not-so-large size. Its inhabitants, called Corkians, are extraordinarily proud of their origins, claiming that their city is the true capital of the country. It is a quiet town with narrow streets that weave between tree-lined driveways, quaint pubs and cottages, and where you can enjoy the excellent recipes typical of Irish cuisine. Generally the main course or main dish in English consists of a meat or fish dish accompanied by rice, potatoes or vegetables. Among the traditional dishes we can mention "Broxy," a potato dish. In fact, it dates back to the period immediately before the famine, prepared in order to take advantage of potatoes that were often of poor quality due to over-exploitation of land. Another way to cook potatoes is "Colcannon," this time made with cabbage and potatoes. And again, a traditional fish dish is "Fisch pie" enriched with crust potatoes, fried mushrooms and crumbled hard-boiled eggs. Outstanding and a must-try is Guinness Fondue. It is often prepared for the St. Patrick's Day holiday and is simple to prepare but impressive. It is an Irish cheddar cheese and dark beer fondue. It is great to enjoy with family or friends.
In addition to visiting its most important cities, however, we also recommend taking a trip into the countryside to admire this country's breathtaking landscapes. Top attractions certainly include the striking Cliffs of Moher or the surreal beech avenue called "the Dark Edges" at the Glens of Antrim. The avenue's beech trees were planted in the 18th century by the Stuart family, and their special feature is the intertwined branches that create very unique plays of light and give the idea of finding oneself in an enchanted fairy-tale landscape. Finally, let us remember Connemara, a place that expresses the most intrinsic Irish atmosphere, a combination of land and sea, lush green meadows, pastures and ponds, all framed by the Twelve Bens range, a fascinating complex of twelve hills that hiking enthusiasts will be delighted to visit.
St. Patrick's Day aka St. Patrick's Day is the national holiday celebrated in honor of St. Patrick, patron saint of 'Ireland, on March 17 each year. Ireland during this holiday thinks green, is tinged with green and will look like you have never seen it before. Characteristic of this holiday are the parades through the city streets, especially in Dublin but also in other states, for example of the United States in New York. During this holiday you want to eat only what is green and wear green-colored clothing and, more importantly, you cannot miss a shamrock; this is because tradition states that St. Patrick explained the mystery of the Holy Trinity to the Irish precisely through the 'use of a shamrock. On March 17 and the days following, Ireland is filled with people, citizens and non-citizens, tourists from every nation, dancing and singing in the Irish streets, always accompanied by a nice mug of Guinness. While the number of Guinness consumed per day in Ireland is typically 700 thousand gallons, during this day it amounts to 1.85 million.
Ireland is thus a country with a magical atmosphere, full of history, folklore, joviality and inmere attractions to discover, some of which we have just described to you and from which we hope you will draw inspiration for a stay in this fantastic land.

In total, the route goes through 24 points of interest. If you want to explore them all, start at either Belfast or Londonderry. The route is only 195 miles long from one end to the other. While it can be covered in a few hours, you will want to get out, explore, take pictures and admire the breathtaking scenery. That is a great advantage of a small country, you can visit a couple of these destinations in one day, then head back to your Ireland vacation home to relax, and start from where you left off the following day.
