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.

Dromoland Castle Hotel

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to stay in a castle, then I have the perfect place for you.  The Dromoland Castle in Ireland is the perfect experience for anyone longing to get an authentic castle experience.   Located in a 15th century Irish castle, this five star hotel is guaranteed to take your breath away.

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.

The Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland

One of the more amazing castles that we got to see in Ireland was the Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland.  The castle itself has seen better days, as you can see by the pictures, but the location where the castle was built is absolutely breathtaking.  Talk about your prime real-estate.
