Dublin enjoys one of the loveliest natural settings in Europe. Dublin attracts visitors from around the world with its old world charm and friendly atmosphere. Most of the architecture dates from the 18th century, when Dublin enjoyed great prominence and prosperity. Also of interest are stately Georgian houses which front Merrion Square. O'Connell Street is considered the commercial center of Dublin. Perhaps the most memorable feature of Dublin is the traditional pub, where visitors can enjoy conversation over fine Irish brew. The city also offers many fine parks, including St. Stephen's Green and Phoenix Park. National Gallery's renowned collection includes works by such famous masters as Rembrandt and Monet. Trinity College's Old Library is home to the most cherished treasure, the Book of Kells, a manuscript of the Gospels. Admire Christ Church Cathedral and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Enjoy the exhibits in impressive National Museum. Self-guided walking tours include Old City Trail, Georgian Heritage Trail and the Cultural Trail.
Connemara is one of the last unspoiled areas in Ireland. From the rugged Twelve Bens mountain range in the north through lake-rich Roundstone Bog to the golden beaches reaching out into the Atlantic Ocean, Connemara is distinguishable by the light that constantly changes the mood and tone of the landscape. Connemara has long been regarded as the real emerald of Ireland which offers visitors a wonderland of sights, experiences, adventure and activities. The people are warm, friendly and extend a hospitality which is the essence of Ireland. The beautiful spring flowers, buds on the trees, newborn lambs dancing on the hills and the call of the cuckoo all make Spring time a very special and magical time in Connemara. This is an ideal time to take a break as the countryside is totally renewed. On mellow Autumn days, one can enjoy the Connemara countryside, now clothed in different colours with each passing day. In the evening enjoy lovely warm turf fires.
Developed by Lord Kenmare as a tourist town in the 18th century, Killarney is now the major tourist centre and accommodation base in Kerry. It is the centre for the Ring of Kerry tour, the focal point for the Killarney National Park and the Kerry Way Walking Trail.
Roscommon is a small lush green county in Ireland with plenty of well-preserved historical features that dates back to the fifth century. Derived from the name Coman mac Faelchon, an abbot who built a monastery, the town became known as Ros Comain (St. Coman’s Wood) and later converting to a more English version, Roscommon. It’s a county where it seated the High Kings of Ireland and birthed historical people from artists, musicians, athletes, explorers, leaders, scholars and soldiers. Travelers can visit the Roscommon castle built in the 13th century, Roscommon Abbey, or the King House, a Gregorian Mansion that holds dramatic episodes of historical tragedies throughout history. This county has over 200 medieval sites to visit!
