For outdoor and city lovers, history buffs and for those who want to relax in peace and quiet, Ireland is the place to visit
4 Activities That Prove Ireland Has Something for Everyone
It’s true that the UK is full of incredible places to visit, with something for just about every activity you can think of, and, everyone needs to get away now and then. The good news is that you don’t need to book an expensive flight across the world, there is something for everybody just across the Irish Sea.
If you’ve never been to Ireland before, you’re missing out, and it doesn’t matter what you love to do, because Ireland has something for everybody, from vibrant cities, friendly pubs and quaint little villages to castles, lakes, rivers and museums.
Ireland for Outdoor Lovers
If there’s one thing that Ireland excels in, it’s the scenery. The lush, green rolling hills are some of the most stunning all over Europe, and even the world, so it’s no surprise that people flock there for hikes, camping, cycling or just for quick day walks to get away from the city.
And, as Ireland isn’t as populated as neighbouring Great Britain, there is plenty of lush green countryside to explore, and if you look at things to do in Killarney, you’ll soon realise that you are spoiled for choice, and you may never want to go home!
Ireland for City Lovers
Ireland isn’t all green hills, though. Many people’s first experience of Ireland is Dublin, which is considered by some to be the best European capital to live in. Dublin itself is large but not too large. You won’t feel overwhelmed the same way you would in London or New York, and this is all part of the charm.
There is plenty to do, from drinking around Temple Bar (although locals will tell you there are far better places), to experiencing your own little Ulysses just like Leopold Bloom once did, or visiting the famous Guinness headquarters, there is no shortage of things to keep you busy.
Ireland for History Buffs
Ireland is also steeped in history. The Blarney Stone, Dublin Castle, and the Hill of Tara (plus Celtic Tombs) will all appeal to history buffs. In classic European style, you don’t need to walk far before coming across something fascinating, most Irish people would advise you to just walk and see where the day takes you.
Ireland for Peace and Quiet
Sometimes, you need to get away from the crowds, and places like Glenlough Bay or Cnoc na Mara are out of the way enough to give you some peace and quiet. These are some of the most remote places in all of Ireland, but the difference is you can actually find a place to stay there.
The Wi-Fi may not be great, and it’s advisable to go with someone else to stave off any boredom – unless you really want total solitude. Wherever you may go, the silence of your surroundings will give you a brand new appreciation for what Ireland is.
A Breath of Fresh Eire
From the gorgeous scenery of the mountains to the fast-paced environment of the big city, you will never run out of things to do in Ireland. It’s similar enough to most of the UK, so you’ll still feel comfortable, but also different enough that you don’t feel as if you could have stayed at home.
So, for your next trip, why not travel to Eire, and tick another destination off your travel bucket list?
