Could it be that Ireland is a second home for me? It can be! Since I lived for a while in Galway, the Emerald Isle has occupied a very big hole in my heart, and I try to visit it again as often as I can. So all the tips for traveling to Ireland I’ve written with all my love.
A real favorite is the Guinness beer. Look at how dense and strong it is, they gulp it down like drinking a glass of water. In the time that I drink one they don’t go below three, and yes, they are a little drunk, but with the rainy weather, they have no better plan after work than to spend some time in the bar.

Ireland is probably one of the safest places in Europe. There are hardly any pickpockets except in very specific neighborhoods of Dublin. In Northern Ireland, since the peace agreements, you don’t have to worry about your safety either.
The railway network in Ireland is managed by Irish Rail. It does not cover the whole territory and is quite expensive. However, the cars are comfortable and the service is generally quite good. Between Dublin and Belfast there is a train service at a fairly good price and the journey takes only two hours (they usually make discounts if you book in advance via the Internet).
The ideal time to travel to Ireland is April and June (July and August are the months in which the country receives more visitors). St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) usually marks the beginning of the tourist season and thereafter, as there are several festivals (Pan Celtic Festival, Belfast Civic Festival, Balmoral Show, Bloomsday, etc.), there may be accommodation problems.
The king ingredient of Irish gastronomy is the potato. The Irish are fond of spoon dishes: Irish stew (potato, carrot, onion and lamb stew simmered for hours), Dublin Stew (sausage, bacon, potatoes and onion boiled in ham broth), Colannon (a potato and cabbage mash), Boxty (a potato cake), Coddle (a potato, sausage and bacon dish)…. Being on an island, whiting, cod, oysters and langoustines are also very typical. Also popular is the Galway Salmon recipe where the fish is served with butter sauce, watercress and colcannon.

We stop in Glenbeigh, just outside Killorgan, where we will visit the “Kerry Bog Village” museum. Here you will enjoy a step back in time to the early 18th century to relive the way of life of that time; peat is harvested from peat bogs and is still used in homes as fuel. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a typical Irish Café’ We complete our tour with a stop at the gardens of Muckross House: they are world famous for their beauty, in particular for their precious collection of azaleas and rhododendrons. Dinner and hotel accommodation in Tralee or Killarney, Kerry County.
Arrival in Dublin with the visit of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, built in honor of the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Cathedral is of Neo-Gothic style and its magnificent interior is adorned with funerary monuments such as the Boyle Family Memorial and the tomb of Dean Dean Jonathan Swif (the author of “Gulliver’s Travels”). Dinner at leisure in Dublin.
