IRELAND TRAVEL TIPS
ONE OF OUR FAVORITE TRAVEL MEMORIES
It’s no secret the Irish are known for their hospitality and the love of a pint of the black stuff, Guinness. Many nights we spent in a cozy traditional Irish pub built of character, and filled with live music whilst digging into a hearty meal.
Whilst Ireland is famous for having one of the best pub scenes in the world, that’s not all it’s got going for it.
The best way to see Ireland, and the way we did it, is to self-drive. It’s not a big country, and navigating the roads and towns is relatively easy, although signage is not the best in the world by anyone’s standards.
Spend Time in Dublin
It’s not a big city by world standards, but it’s big on energy, history, and atmosphere.
Visit the outer Suburbs of Dublin
Dublin has many great outer suburbs that are worth visiting for a taste of local living.
Road Trip Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland is part of Great Britain and offers a unique perspective to Southern Ireland. We would often visit on short road trip from Dublin.
Visit a Castle in Ireland
It’s no secret that scuba diving can be hard on the bank account. If you’re looking to save a little money on your Zakynthos dive adventure consider packing some of your dive equipment for the journey and just rent the tank and weights from a local dive shop.
Drink in a Pub and Enjoy Irish Music
No trip to Ireland is complete and you won’t get a better understanding of the Irish culture unless you spend some time in their pubs.
See a Hurling or Gaelic Football Match
One of the best live sporting matches I have ever seen was the semi-final of the All Ireland Gaelic Football match between Donegal and Armagh in Croke Park, Dublin
Eat Irish Style
Some of our favorites were potato and leek soup, bacon and cabbage, Guinness or Irish stew, and of course potato.
