Ireland

Hey there! This travel post is all about the Republic of Ireland. On my trip I travelled the South Island loop (Dublin-Cork-Galway-Limerick) with a few stops along the way.

Dublin

The capital of Ireland definitely has lots to do! Including Dublin Castle and the Guinness Storehouse but my favourite was the classic Irish pubs in and around the city. With traditional music singing and dance it’s a great experience. Plus the Irish are so merry and friendly it’s impossible not to smile.

Cork

During my trip I stayed in Cork and although the city itself wasn’t my favourite there are many things to do on day trips out of Cork. For example Blarney Castle and Gardens home of the famous Blarney Stone. The Castle isn’t anything out of the ordinary but the gardens around it are absolutely beautiful and could make excellent photo opportunities.

Galway

Galway was my personal favourite city we visited on our trip tp Ireland literally just because of the super cute markets and atmosphere of the whole town. Besides the town itself one of my favourite it places was the Cliffs Of Moher. They were beautiful and there was even some highland cattle 😂. Apart from that the view was gorgeous it was even worth almost blowing off the edge with how strong the wind was! We also visited Aillwee Cave which was certainly out of my comfort zone but I don’t regret it. It was a great experience for a first time caver.

Killarney

I didn’t do much in Killarney as it was just a stop on our way back to Dublin. But we did go to Killarney national park (which was beautiful) and got into a horse and carriage that went around the base of the mountain. It was quite nice to have a change of scenery from the back of the car. Our horse took us through the scenic route and back to our car. Although I didn’t see much of the town from what I saw of it it looked really nice.

Kilkenny

Same sort of thing here. We only stopped here for a couple hours to poke around the streets. We visited Kilkenny castle which was a reasonable size with a lot of antique paintings and old furniture.

That’s all for today I hope you found this post useful/informative. Have a great day! – Sophie
