Travel to Ireland - Visit Dublin, Kilkenny Castle, Cork, Derry
Ireland's full name is Éire and is the third largest island in Europe. Its capital city is Dublin. The official currency is the euro. Ireland's main religion is Roman Catholic. One of the official languages is English; however, it is a bit different than the typical English spoken elsewhere. The other official language is Gaelic, spoken in many parts of southern and western Ireland.
The busiest tourist time is during the months of July and August when the streets will be brimming with festivals as well as people. The days are longer then and the weather is a bit warmer. Some of the country's restaurants and bed and breakfast establishments close during the winter months, so accommodations may be scanty between October and March.
Sightseeing here can encompass numerous churches, castles, museums, forts, and museums. Beautiful gardens are interspersed throughout the countryside. One of the more famous of its castles, Kilkenny Castle, is open to the public. It still retains three of its original towers.
Dublin is a veritable tourist hot spot so book your accommodations early. Cork, the second largest city in Ireland, sits near the Lee River. The ramparts of Derry (also known as Londonderry) are the originals and the only ones in all of Ireland. This walled city in Northern Ireland offers excellent views from the top of its walls.
