Ireland doesn’t just live in the now. Cities like Dublin, Belfast, Galway and Kilkenny are as rooted in history as the 21st century. They’re full of surprises, and super fun.
Oh, and did we mention they’re always making their way onto the best destination lists from the likes of Lonely Planet, National Geographic and TripAdvisor?
Dublin is a city as renowned for its great works of literature as the locals’ gifts of the gab (conversation). Here, you can stand in awe at the ninth century Book of Kells in Trinity College’s Old Library, or simply enjoy the lively social capital of Temple Bar.
Take an interactive journey through the Viking city at Dublinia, before hopping onto a Segway for a unique tour through the Docklands or The Phoenix Park. At the Guinness Storehouse, you can immerse yourself in the history of the famous brewery before learning how to pull the perfect pint, and savouring it with a 360-degree view from the rooftop Gravity Bar.
Right now, Belfast is experiencing a rebirth. Titanic Belfast, an interactive museum in an iconic waterside building, tells the story of RMS Titanic with holograms and replica shipyard rides. You can take Black Taxi Tours of the city’s political murals, before discovering the next Snow Patrol or Van Morrison at one of the city’s lively bars and clubs.
Or how about heading west to the festival city of Galway? One moment you could be wandering through a farmers’ market; the next having a flutter at the racetrack. Lonely Planet says it best: “If you ask a local what they're doing next Tuesday, they will look at you puzzled, knowing that anything can happen between now and then.”
In Ireland, a good time is never far away.
