Holidays To Ireland
If you’re going to Ireland to find snakes, you’re out of luck. Saint Patrick banished those creepy little mongrels centuries ago. However, you will find cliffs that go from the sea to the heavens, medieval castles that would make King Arthur jealous and the finest stout beer on earth. Browse our awesome Ireland packages today and get lucky tomorrow. Things to Do in Ireland
Your Ireland holiday will begin in the capital city of Dublin, and the first thing on your to-do list should be to pick up one of Wotif’s Dublin car hire options. Make the 263km drive to County Cork where Blarney Castle, a medieval stronghold built by the MacCarthy of Muskerry, is located. Hopefully you’re travelling with a trusted friend—if so, have them hold you by the ankles while you hang over the castle wall and kiss the Blarney Stone. You’re supposed to get the gift of the gab after you smooch it.
No holiday in Ireland is complete without seeing the sheer magnitude of the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, 128 kilometres from County Cork. The cliffs are ridiculously high and should be just as high on your things-to-do list. Be sure to visit O’Brien’s Tower—which sits atop the highest point of the bluffs—and then visit the nearby village of Liscanor for a pint of Guinness. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
When you’re ready for shopping, there’s probably no better city in the country for it than Dublin. Make your way to Grafton Street in the city centre, where countless buskers will entertain you as you browse the retail shops lining the street.
OK, now that you’re through window shopping, it’s time to feed the beast. Follow your nose to the Temple Bar Food Market and grab freshly baked loaves of soda bread and barmbrack. If you’re looking for a sit-down meal, head into one of the restaurants and enjoy a plate of coddle and boxty. Of course, all meals during holidays to Ireland are topped off with a pint of stout.
If you thought the Irish didn’t know how to let loose during evening hours, you must be living on Mars. Don’t leave the Temple Bar area of Dublin when the sun sets, because that’s when this place it really comes alive. Some of the pubs, like the Palace Bar, the Temple Bar Pub and Oliver St. John Gogarty’s have been there for over 100 years. What’s Next?
