What to do in Ireland

Dublin is the capital of Ireland and one of the main tourist cities in the country. You can find dozens of museums, castles and beautiful architectural works, music and literature festivals throughout the year and pleasant parks, such as Phoenix Park.

Other tourist cities are Galway, with its charming colorful houses, and Cork, which has beautiful castles, such as Blackrock Castle. Both places are great weekend getaways.

In the Irish countryside, there are villages and cities that carry the tradition and historical vestiges of the period when the Vikings occupied the island, such as Limerick, Waterford, Arklow and Wicklow.

The stunning landscapes, in turn, are scattered throughout the island. One of the most famous sights is the set of seaside cliffs Cliffs Of Moher. A sight worth seeing! Other worthwhile tours are Glendalough Valley and the Wicklow Mountains, as well as Connemara National Park, surrounded by mountains, lakes and Kylemore Castle.
