About Ireland

What makes Ireland fantastic is that the quantity of never-ending green, lush landscapes, peninsulas, cliffs and beaches always matches the number of adorable, quaint but impossible to decline, bustling pubs. While Dublin is critical for any Ireland itinerary, there are too many other cities to list that pack the same amount of character, personality, live music and outdoor activities. Just opposite from Dublin lies Galway, Connemara National Park, as well as the Aran Islands, which offer countless options for hiking and exploring. The Ring of Kerry is gorgeous and self-paced. No matter what your itinerary contains, make sure you have room in your stomach for a pint or two of Guinness and plenty of potatoes.

When to Go: June-September, unless you love rain. Then feel free to go any time of year.
