You’ll travel by political murals and delve deep into the past of the city. Belfast really offers the best of culture and fun.
County Kilkenny offers an ideal combination of the modern and historical. It’s great for those looking to take in the nature and history of Ireland. The major attractions of County Kilkenny include Kilkenny City, Jerpoint Park, St Canice’s Cathedral, and the Dunmore Caves. County Kilkenny is such a maze of lanes and alleyways that there’s no telling where – or indeed when – you’ll find yourself.
Take a trip just outside of the city and the River Nore will have you feeling like you’ve fallen into a fairytale fantasy. The countryside is great for walking, cycling, and driving. There’s always something new waiting to be discovered in Kilkenny. It’s the kind of place you have to visit several times.
The people of Galway City know how to have a good time. The city is filled with artistry and fun with events and festivals held all year round. Galway celebrates just about everything from literature to horseracing, and even oysters. People spend their weekends in the city hopping between bars, pubs, and restaurants.
The city also has a historic flavor to it. There’s the occasional trace of Galway to be found, including the Spanish Arch and the city walls of the city that drench the place in an ancient atmosphere. As a seaport, Galway City always offers some excellent seafood to be enjoyed. Galway is often called the “City of Equals” because it promotes such a high level of respect and understanding. Despite the range of languages and cultures, the area still holds a traditional feel that you can immerse yourself into.
It’s no wonder that the people of County Cork love their home county so much when you consider the delicious food, the beautiful coastline, and the string of colorful towns. County Cork is the largest county of Ireland. It spreads across the south-west of the country and is the home of political leader Michael Collins and soccer legend Roy Keane.
Cork city is the heart of County Cork, which Cork natives feel is the true capital of the Republic of Ireland. They like to quip that they just let Dubliners pretend. Dignitaries may to go to Dublin for entertainment, but they come to Cork to really be entertained on their days off!
