With miles and miles of lush green scenery, jaw dropping nature and coastal views, as well as historical cities and buildings that date back centuries, Ireland is without a doubt one of the most beautiful travel destinations on the planet.
The Irish capital of Dublin is a good place to start any adventure through this little country. Those partial to a tipple or two may know Dublin as the birthplace of the iconic beverage of Guiness. Travelers can visit the Guiness factory in Dublin and gain an interesting insight into the brewing process of the drink, in addition to a free tasting of various up-and-coming blends and infusions of the drink.
Dublin Castle and St Stephen's Green are two beautiful historic sites that should not be missed while in Dublin -- the latter of which is home to stunning fragrant flower gardens.
Though the cities are a lovely way to get a feel for what life is like as a local in Ireland, the nature and the great outdoors is one of the country's highlights. The world famous Cliffs of Moher offer over a 4-mile walking trail and a viewing tower that provides incredible sights and photo opportunities. The Ring of Kerry is a slightly longer route, though its flat terrain makes it accessible for even the most beginner hikers. The latter route leads past many important historical and natural attractions.
