Why Travel Republic of Ireland?

The Republic of Ireland occupies most of the island of Ireland, off the coast of England and Wales. Its eastern capital, Dublin, is the birthplace of writers including Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett, and home of Guinness beer. 

When in Republic of Ireland, first visit Dublin, which is the Republic’s main entry-point and a confident capital whose raw, modern energy is complemented by rich cultural traditions, and which boasts outstanding medieval monuments and the richly varied exhibits of the National Gallery and National Museum. South of the city, the desolate Wicklow Mountains offer a breathtaking contrast to city life. 

If you arrive on the west coast at Shannon Airport in County Clare, Ireland’s most spectacular landscapes lie within easy reach. Clare’s coastline itself rises to a head at the vertiginous Cliffs of Moher, while inland lies The Burren, a barren limestone plateau at odds with the lush greenery characteristic of much of Ireland. To Clare’s south, Limerick’s Hunt Museum houses one of Ireland’s most diverse and fascinating collections. 

You could also head to County Kerry, south of Limerick that features dazzling scenery, an intoxicating brew of invigorating seascapes, looming mountains and sparkling lakes. If you head to Clare’s north, lies enthralling Connemara—an untamed bogland set between sprawling beaches and a muddle of quartz-gleaming mountains; and if you head further north, Donegal offers a dramatic mix of rugged peninsulas and mountains, glistening beaches and magical lakes. 

Much of Northern Ireland’s countryside is intensely beautiful and unspoilt, though most of the major attractions lie around its fringes. Glens of Antrim, Giant’s Causeway, Strangford Lough, Lough Erne are some amazing visits.
