Music filled pubs, scenery to inspire odes and lauds, a people as welcoming and enchanting as the place they call home, Ireland is truly a magical nation. From Dublin to Galway, from Waterford to the Cliffs of Moher, you’ll need only a week before falling in love with this remarkable country.
Dublin - Arrive in Dublin, the Heart of Ireland
Your Irish journey commences in Dublin, a one-of-a-kind world capital that is renowned for its beautiful Georgian architecture, its varied entertainment, and its kind and personable people. Despite the hustle and bustle that comes with being the primary city in the Republic, you’ll find Dublin remarkably easy to navigate and indescribably fun to explore. Shop on Henry Street to the north of the River Liffey, or on elegant Grafton Street to the south, where no motor traffic is allowed and where jewelry, accessories and haute couture are on prominent display. The walk down O’Connell Street, the city’s main thoroughfare, takes you past the stunning statute of Daniel O’Connell himself, then onward past the General Post Office sporting a bronze statue of the folk hero Cuchulainn and bullet holes from the fighting between Irish Nationalists and British police in the early twentieth century. Crain your neck as you reach the Dublin Spire, the tallest sculpture on Earth, or turn towards street level to catch a glimpse of Dublin’s most prominent literary export, James Joyce. While Dublin is full of incredible sights, your favorite moments in this charming capital might be the ones of aimless rambling.
