From the beautiful Ireland

Often known as the prettiest country in Europe, a visit to Ireland is a complete package for all kind of travelers. Adventure, romantic and fun-filled memories is what you should be expecting if you are planning a trip to Ireland. You can choose to explore this blazing green island either leisurely or jam-pack your itinerary, as there is plethora of things to do here. Sit back and relax in one of their quaint countryside towns or plan an adventure out to explore the beautiful lush national parks, either ways you will be feeling the true essence of this beautiful country. It is just not the Island’s natural beauty that would amaze you, but their interesting history tells you a lot about the current cities and their culture.

Ireland has been through a rough time in the past and has been influenced by various cultures as it was invaded by Celts (around 300 BC), with the arrival of Saint Patrick and other Christian missionaries (early to mid 5th century). Viking’s invaded Ireland (in the end of 8th century) and found the current capital Dublin who was followed by the Norms (in 12th century) and then the British. This has all added up and has framed the current culture of Ireland in one way or the other.

I loved Ireland for more than one reason and few things came bit surprising, as I had not expected it all. So here are few things that you would do while visiting Ireland:

From the rugged landscape of Barren to the green patch of endless fields and valleys Irish countryside looks as if it is straight out of painting. For a person like me who love being outdoors especially in countryside, Ireland has plenty of options. The sight of dramatic landscape combined with cute thatch roof cottages is simply something one cannot miss to see while traveling to Ireland.Ireland

The best way to explore the hidden gems of Ireland is by road and renting a car in Ireland as a tourist is pretty easy (but comes with a big bill!) and I must admit it is all worth it. So, rent a car and choose a random location or a city to drive down to. On one of our drives, we choose to drive towards the east tip of Ireland Howth and were totally taken by the beauty of the east coast and the charming small towns and beautiful villas we passed by.
