Answers about Ireland

I have read about the many things to do in Ireland but I am stumped as to what things I should do and where I should definitely go before I return home. If you had to create a list of the top 3-5 things to do in Ireland, what would they be? I am open to all sorts of activities.

Eric's answer was spot on. Some other suggestions would be a lazy Sunday in Dublin, seafood lunch in Kinsale, Guinness and traditional music in Dingle, a walk around the monastic ruins at Glendalough before a picnic by the Upper Lake or a day exploring The Burren. To be fair there is no shortage of fantstic places to visit in Ireland despite our small size.

Dear Eric

My top attractions in Ireland would be (in no particular order)
- The Giant's Causeway and the Antrim Coast
- The Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry
- The Blasket Islands and Blasket Island Heritage Centre in County Kerry
- The Burren Region of County Clare
- The Aran Islands off the coast of Galway

All of the above are great places to hike.

Have a great trip to Ireland
Yours sincerely
