Best Places To Visit in Ireland

 

My spring break wasn’t exactly full of swimsuits and partying on the beach- there was a lot of winter coats, rain, and wind. But, I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. The week I spent in Ireland was one of the most eventful and eye-opening experiences I have ever had and I am forever grateful for the opportunity I had to visit this beautiful country.

 

Kilkenny Castle

One of the first stops on our trip was a small city named Kilkenny, where toured Kilkenny Castle. Built in 1195, the castle is filled with impressive art and architecture.

  

Blarney Castle

Ireland is practically overflowing with castles, you just have to know where to find them. One of the most famous is Blarney Castle. Here, we walked the grounds, going through fern gardens, poisonous plant gardens, and climbing the steep and narrow steps to the roof of the castle. I watched as my friends, who are a lot braver than me, laid upside down to kiss the Blarney Stone.

   

Slea Head Drive

The Slea Head Drive is a loop, starting and ending in the town of Dingle. On this drive, we saw some of the most breath taking coastal views we had ever seen. We followed windy, narrow roads that brought us to cliffs overlooking the ocean waves.

  

Cliffs of Moher

The cliffs are one of the most talked about sights to see in Ireland- and there is good reason for that. We began walking the path next to the cliffs, quickly crossing a sign telling us to continue at our own risk. The pathway was slippery, and muddy, and maybe just a little dangerous. My best advice for anyone who goes the cliffs is to walk the path as far as you can safely, because the view just gets better and better.

  

Dublin

Specifically- Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day. This is a must-do for everyone at least once in their life. The city is alive, and everyone is looking to make friends and have a good time. You will meet some of the most friendly and fun people, you’ll never want the day to end.

                          

So, if you’re looking for a spring break trip without the sunburn, book a trip to Ireland! Just don’t forget to bring a raincoat.
