Destination Information for Ireland
The Republic of Ireland is a part of the British Isles, found in the North Atlantic. Its capital, Dublin, is a UNESCO City of Literature, and the country has produced more Nobel Prize winners for literature than anywhere else in the world. The spirit of the city is exhibited on Grafton Street, which is brought to life by buskers, flower-sellers and cafes, with plenty of shops as well. And a trip to Trinity College will allow you to escape the hustle and bustle, as Ireland’s oldest university provides a contrast to the modernity of the rest of the city. Its Long Room was even the inspiration for the library in the first Harry Potter film!
Outside of urban areas, Ireland also has some famous natural features. The Cliffs of Moher are an hour and a half’s drive from Galway, and their rugged beauty attracts close to a million visitors each year. Alternatively, a drive around the Ring of Kerry allows tourists to take in some stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.
