    Ireland is famous for its beautiful countryside and coastline, its delicious stout, its literary contributions, an its people which are friendly almost to a fault. After some time in Dublin, make sure to make your way around this small country, and spend some time in the small towns and countryside. And don't forget to visit a pub or two, or three!

    I can't seem to stop visiting Ireland. It's one of the world's most perfect countries for road trips. Easy to drive, easy to find lodging (good value B&Bs are a dime a dozen all over the countryside and you don't need an advanced reservation) and unendingly filled with mythical ancient structures, live music at local pubs and the friendliest people of any nation (seriously -- I think they've won awards proving that).

    Ireland is a beautiful country, and one of the greenest places I have ever visited. There are great views of the sea on the western coast, and plenty of charming medieval towns, a great capitol in Dublin, and lots of history and culture.

    Beautiful countryside. You see a pub every 20 yards. You can feel Ireland's rich history. I will say between Ireland and Scotland you will find the freindliest people who make you feel at home instantly.

    I've been to Ireland several times and always have a fantastic trip. It's foreign enough to be exotic but familiar enough to comfortable for an english speaker.

    Have been here on business several times and spent about three weeks exploring it with my mother in 2007. History casts a long shadow but the scenery is unmatched and the cultural life is fun when it's not tragic.

    Anywhere in Ireland is good, North or South.
    A country with a soul.
    Friendly and welcoming. Short flight from England is a bonus

    The only thing I remember is the brown bear Guiness.... Dublin is also nice and the people very nice. Always wanted to go back and explore more sites there like the north-west part. I know from working as a guide for many years now that that part is the most interesting part of Ireland. Regarding the info that the Irish people have given me throughout the years.

Description

If you're going to find mythical creatures anywhere in the world, it's sure to be Ireland. The Emerald Isle simply feels magical. Lush, green pastures dotted with silently grazing sheep, old timers jamming together on the fiddle and bodhrán in pubs older than anyone can remember, islands where the Irish language is as ubiquitous as the fishermen hauling in today's catch ... Ireland feels like something out of a novel. And, for the most part, it is. With a literary history as long as the hills are green, it's no wonder dozens of world-class writers like James Joyce or Bram Stoker came from the Emerald Isle. If you'd like the 'gift of gab,' kiss the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle. Or, admire the sheer drops of the Cliffs of Moher, on the stunningly lush west coast of Ireland. For urban entertainment, visit Dublin, Galway or Cork for some craic (lively conversation) at a pub with locals, where it's easy to see why the country is experiencing a economic and cultural resurgence. Forget hotels outside of the cities; family-run B&Bs are everywhere. Ireland hasn't, ahem, been known for its cuisine, but this resourceful country is experiencing a restaurant revolution, combining ... read more
international flavors with traditional Irish ingredients and recipes.
