Cahir Castle Visitor’s Guide

One of the largest castles in Ireland, the Cahir Castle is also one of the prettiest. One of the things we loved the most about this castle is the lack of crowds.  It isn’t as notorious with tourists as some of Ireland’s other castles (the Rock of Cashel is just 30 minutes away), so you rarely have to battle large crowds to get access to parts of the castle or have to wait for people to clear to get good pictures.

Blarney Castle Visitor’s Guide

Located near the city of Cork in Southern Ireland, the Blarney Castle is one of the most famous castles in Ireland.  Built by one of Ireland’s most powerful and influential chieftans, Cormac McCarthy roughly 600 years ago, the castle attracts droves of visitors to this day.  Much of that has to do with the legendary Blarney Stone, which is said to give you the gift of eloquence upon kissing it.

Belfast Visitor’s Guide

Until I visited Belfast, I didn’t truly realize just how amazing the city really is.  It is a city that is steeped in history, and so much of that history can still be explored.  When I visited, I felt like I was taking a trip back in time thru some of Europe’s most historical moments.  This is one of the things that makes the city of Belfast so special.

Dublin, Ireland Visitor’s Guide

Dublin is such an amazing city with an amazing history.  With such an amazing and storied history, it may come as a surprise to you that Dublin actually has the youngest population in all of Europe.  In fact, over half of the population of Dublin is under the age of 25.  With this youthful undercurrent, Dublin can be an exciting place to visit and explore.  It is definitely one of my favorite destinations that I have visited.
