Kissing Ireland’s Blarney Stone
Visitors from around the world have been kissing Ireland's Blarney Stone for well over 200 years. Legend claims the ritual will bestow the kisser with the gift of eloquence and persuasiveness, or "the gift of gab". Easy. Just bend over backwards and hang upside down. Afterwards, explore the castles hidden passages and mystical gardens like Badger's Cave, Witch's Cave and the Poison Garden.
Touring Ireland's Copper Coast
The Copper Coast between Tramore and Dungarvan in County Waterford is one of the more spectacular driving and cycle routes in Ireland. Though not as well known as the Wild Atlantic Way, this rugged stretch of coastline boasts plenty of beautiful beaches, rugged clifftops, secluded coves and charming villages in a largely overlooked part of the country.
Daytrip To Wexford, Ireland
Wexford is a small town in southeast Ireland at the mouth of the River Slaney. Founded by the Vikings around 800 AD, it is steeped in ancient heritage and rich with history. Known mostly for its claustrophobic web of medieval streets, shopping on Main Street, and the world-famous, annual Wexford Opera Festival held each October. Wexford captivates visitors with its mix of old-time pubs, historic monuments, repurposed buildings and modern conveniences.
Top 12 Things To See And Do In Waterford, Ireland
We spent two days exploring Waterford and surrounding counties, learning all about Ireland's history, sampling its local cuisine and soaking up the sights. I've put together a list of Waterford's must-see attractions when visiting the area. You can't see it all in one day, so pick depending on the length of your stay.
One Afternoon In Carlow, Ireland
The County Town of Carlow in Ireland is thousands of years old and pre-dates written Irish history, as the phenomenal Brownshill Dolmen testifies. Initially, I only wanted to visit Duckett’s Grove on my way to Waterford from Dublin, but ended up spending an amazing afternoon in this quaint, wonderful and historic town. Though not geared towards tourism, Carlow exhibits many long-standing attractions, from the banks of the River Barrow to the rows of Georgian houses in old centre at Montgomery and Burrin Streets. There is something for everyone to enjoy in Carlow.
Dublin: The Black Pool
Dublin, for many visitors to Ireland, is a prime vacation destination. And it should be. Filled with a vast history, a charming character, and countless attractions including world-class museums, galleries and theatres, Dublin is Europe’s fourth most popular city destination. And don’t forget the fabulous shops, restaurants and pubs… I enjoyed our visit much more than I expected. And we didn’t even get to tour the Guinness Storehouse or the Irish Whiskey Museum.
