Can't get enough?

Tourism Ireland invites you to say hello to Ireland’s enchanting cities. Be charmed by Dublin’s literary legacy, find a bar stool with your name on it and meet locals with tales to tell. Follow the footsteps of literary giants at the Writers Museum and come evening-time, join the friendly fun of the Literary Pub Crawl where cozy pubs come alive with tall tales of literary legends. Nearby, take time to tour Wicklow’s National Park and purple colored mountains while two hours away lies Belfast, Titanic’s hometown, from where the entire Antrim coast is your playground. Savor the food at St. George’s Market, the buzz of the Cathedral Quarter and take in a concert in Belfast. Immerse yourself in the story of the Ship of Dreams at Titanic Belfast before experiencing the majesty of the Causeway Coastal Route where you can set foot on the storied Giant’s Causeway. Test your nerve on the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. And for Game of Thrones fans Westeros isn’t just a fantasy landscape, it’s alive and thriving in Northern Ireland, one of the main filming locations for the series.

Then consider the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s 1,500 mile long coastal touring route winding from Donegal in the north to Kinsale on the southern coast in County Cork. All along the way enjoy dramatic coastline scenes and experience the lively towns, pubs, restaurants, music and of course, meeting the warmest of Irish welcomes at every turn on this journey of inspiration
