Whether you’ve lived in Ireland since childhood or are new to the country, this beautiful island has a lot to offer.
The first stop on any traveller’s list should be a trip to one of Ireland’s beautiful national parks. Home to Ireland’s only native red deer (as well as a number of other rare fish, birds and insects), Killarney National Park in County Kerry is perfect for those wanting to explore the country’s stunning natural landscape, while Connemara National Park in County Galway showcases the famous Twelve Bens mountain range, and is in walking distance of the historic Kylemore Abbey.
If you’re in the mood for something a little more rustic, the famous Giant’s Causeway is one of the geological wonders of the world, while the Blarney Castle in Cork is one of Ireland’s oldest castles, and home to the world-renowned Blarney Stone.
Those looking to experience traditional Irish life would enjoy a visit to the remote Aran Islands (the country’s only car-free community) or the small village of Doolin in County Clare, where traditional Irish music was born. However, if you prefer city life, Ireland’s capital city Dublin is the place to go. After you’ve enjoyed some of the bars, pubs and restaurants that populate this metropolitan area, you could take a trip to the Dublin Writer’s Museum, where you can view work from the area’s four Nobel Prize-winning authors, or visit the beautiful Old Library at Trinity College, home to the fabled Book of Kells.
Whether you’re enjoying rolling green hills or charming historic towns, no day out in Ireland would be complete without sharing it with your friends and family. Wherever you go, you can stay connected with Lycamobile’s SIM only plans that cover your needs of international text, call and data bundle deals, starting €4 per month.
