Have you ever celebrated Saint Patrick’s Day? Do you drink Jameson or Tullamore whisky? Do you love watching and admiring stunning and dramatic natural landscapes? If you have answered yes to the questions above, you are ready to visit Ireland.
A mesmerising island that lies in the northwestern part of Europe, next to Great Britain. Don’t let the fact that it is an island fool you – it is an island country and you will need at least a couple of months to get to know it truly. This entails that there are many cities around the island that are worth your time. Below you will find the four Irish cities that welcome the most visitors every year, so that you may also see for yourself why so many people travel there.
City 1: Dublin
You may have already guessed it, but of course the capital of Ireland is the number one most visited city in the country. Dublin is a coastal city in the eastern part of Ireland. If you travel there in summer, you can take your car and go to the beautiful beaches near Dublin such as Balscadden Bay and Killiney. If you don’t have a car, you can hire one on Enjoy Travel and explore the whole city and the areas around it in the most convenient and fast way possible. If it is winter, you shouldn’t even try to swim because the waters are VERY cold.
City 2: Galway
Similar to Dublin, Galway is a city near water. Dublin and Galway are at the same longitude but in different directions; Galway is in the western part of the country. You should spend some time wandering around and taking in the city. Admiring the view of the vast sea on the Salthill promenade, shopping at the Quay street, finding your new favourite pub in the Latin Quarter and visiting Lynch’s castle are a few of the things that you should do there.
City 3: Cork
Cork is the second largest city in Ireland, and it is included in the list of cities that people are intrigued to get to know. It is located in the southwestern part of Ireland, and it is a harbour city. It is worth mentioning that its harbour, which has the same name as the city, is one of the biggest natural harbours in the world.
City 4: Tralee
People who are looking for some peace and quiet, who want to escape the hectic pace of life and the hustle and bustle of a city even for a little way choose to visit Tralee. It is the capital of Kerry county, so you don’t have to worry about not having many things to do. On the contrary, your days will be full of fun activities. You can get to know the place by visiting the Kerry County Museum, stroll around the Tralee Town Park, take a photo in front of the Blennerville Windmill and learn about the ruins of Ardfert Cathedral.
