Now I am working on the stop in Ireland for 6 days. What are the main attractions to see there. I am really relaying on you all to come thru for me again with some good ideas. As I am such a newbie when it comes to all this but I am learning alot. Thanks alot. Kay Capps
The Cliffs of Moher (on the west coast) and The Giant's Causeway on the Northeast were among the highlights of my visit there. It's a beautiful country, you'll really like it there.
Are you gonna hire a car or book in with some tour groups?
I heartell Giant's Causeway is a must-see (although I never made it there ). Ditto for Donegal, which is apparently gorgeous.
Dublin itself is beautiful, and I'd recommend the Guinness factory tour. A little over the top, but well worth it just for the free pint and the view from the bar at the very top. Belfast is also a beautiful city, and you can take a tour to see the murals, stop for a pint, visit Cavehill and perhaps Belfst zoo, have another pint, take a trip to the Mourne mountains and a quick tour of Newcastle, and finish off with another pint. Better take the bus, though.
Also besides the other sites mentioned we also have Newgrange, which is older then the pyramids themselves.... or what about visiting some of the rural gaeltacht areas were they still speak Irish,
I was really bummed, I got to Newgrange and my last day in Ireland but was too late to take the bus over and actually see it. I did get to see it from afar, but I really wanted to go inside.
I really liked the remote areas in the West & Northwest (maybe that's why I couldn't understand anything they were saying, I thought it was the accent).
Belfast is also a beautiful city, and you can take a tour to see the murals
I really liked wandering around and checking out all the differnt murals. Depending witch side you are on, you get a totally different perscective on their feelings of the situation.
If you only have the time to do a daytrip from Dublin, I'd recommend Glendalough in the Wicklow mountains. Around there you can visit very interesting ruins and will see some beautiful glens.
For me it almost had a magical atmosphere!
Enjoy Ireland (want to return too...)!
Do not miss Galway neither if you have the chance... If you are coming to the Cliff's from Dublin, a little stop on the way would be nice!
Killarney and Kerry are a good choice. I rented a car with a friend for 3 days, overnighted 2 nights, started in Dublin where she lived, all the way to Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Killarney, Cork and back to Dublin.... Just in 3 days.
But anyway, hope you find your own way!
