This section is about places in the following 24 Counties of Ireland(!):
Antrim, Armagh, Carlow, Cavan, Down. Dublin, Fermanagh, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Leitrim, Derry, Longford, Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Offaly, Roscommon, Tipperary, Tyrone, Waterford, Westmeath, Wexford and Wicklow.
(No, I have not visited all of these Counties. – Nowhere near, in fact…).
In County Wicklow: Glendalough.
A rather spiritual place. Very nice monastic remains, and two deep, dark and mysterious lakes. Relax with a pint at the visitor centre afterwards. If you don’t have a car at your disposal, there are different bus companies who go to Glendalough.
(You can easily make it as part of a day trip from Dublin).
In County Tipperary: Cashel
County Antrim: The Giant’s Causeway
Yes. Packed with tourists. But, it made Unesco’s list for a reason. It is amazing.
(I’m tempted to get a better camera, and go back for better picures. I probably will, but for such a trip, I would probably rather have been going back to Skellig Michael).
The Giant’s Causeway: http://www.giantscausewayofficialguide.com/
There are many nice villages on the coast of Antrim. Pay a visit to Bushmills, and see: http://www.bushmills.com/. (This is a kjell magne link, say you live in Denmark.)
The drive from The Giant’s Causeway to Ballycastle is particularly nice. (The England Krokket Team hiked The Moyle Way, ending up in Ballycastle, and caught a bus to The Giant’s Causeway). On County Antrim: http://www.countyantrim.com/ and http://www.northantrim.com/

I love a good Guinness. (An understatement). But, if you’re not just all about the beer,
if you want to see a piece of real history and culture, and had to pick o n e place:
– Go see Skellig Michael.
