A green country, vast extents, meadows, hills, cliffs, and beer ! Ireland is a mysterious country full of surprises.

This country is traditionally divided into 4 provinces, one of which is partly owned by Northern Ireland. The most popular cities on the island are its capital Dublin but also Cork and Galway, where you can find the Irish spirit. But it is above all the landscapes made of green countryside and Atlantic cliffs that attract travelers.

Leinster and its rich history

Leinster is the largest province in Ireland and is the region of Dublin, the capital. With the Liffey River quays, its famous bars and cobbled roads, Dublin is undoubtedly a city that must be visited to discover Irish culture.

There are also many castles, such as the impressive Kilkenny Castle. Inland, Leap Castle, a typical Irish castle, makes it easy to imagine the many clan stories that have taken place there.

Finally, you can also see the ruins of the Black Castle in Wicklow, where you can enjoy a superb view of the Irish Sea. In the same county, the Wicklow Mountains and their national park are a great destination for hikers.

Munster, Ireland of the cliffs

It is in this province that the most famous cliffs of the country are located: the Moher cliffs. Further south, the natural stone bridges of the Bridge of Ross cliffs offer a unique landscape.

In the same region, the Dingle Peninsula offers a superb view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is also home to Killarney National Park, the first and largest in Ireland. Thanks to its rich fauna and flora around its lakes and mountains, a hike in this park allows you to connect with the Irish nature.

For travellers who prefer the cities, Cork is a must-see, especially for its castle and cathedral. In Cork County, you can also visit the city of Cobh and its colourful houses.

Connacht, the wild Ireland

In this region, the city of Galway is known for its colourful and cobbled streets. It is in the county of the same name that Connemara, which inspired Michel Sardou, is located. How can we not fall in love with this wild nature swept by the winds ?

There are also many islands in Connacht. The Achille one and its large green spaces will seduce travellers looking for the typical Irish countryside. You can also visit the much smaller island of Clare, a mountainous island sparsely populated which invites to hike.

Ulster and its green landscapes

Most of this province does not belong to the State of Ireland but to Northern Ireland. Ulster is famous for its green landscapes and hiking.

For example, the Slieve League marine cliffs, the highest in Europe, are located in the northwestern part of the province. This site offers magnificent hikes with an extraordinary view. For less steep hikes, Lough Eske Lake, near the town of Donegal, is ideal.

Finally, less popular, the Inishowen Peninsula is a must-see for its white sandy beaches, green vegetation and azure blue water.

The cost of living in Ireland is very similar to that in France. Organising your trip to Ireland therefore requires a fairly large budget. But it is possible to find solutions quite easily in Ireland to reduce it.

It is nevertheless necessary to plan about 170€ per day. Some will manage to spend less than 55€ per day while the most expensive ones will have a budget of about 300€ per day.

In Ireland Bed&Breakfasts are very common, but it is not always the most economical solution. Indeed, it is also possible to find youth hostels that offer very interesting prices. For meals, pubs are widespread and offer copious food at very affordable prices.

Flights from France cost on average between 150€ and 230€ depending on the city of departure.

📍Cliffs of Moher, County Clare
The Final of Ireland's Best Tourism Site - Cliffs of Moher or Skellig Michael - Vote via our Instagram Stories yourwayireland
.
Thousands upon thousands of votes have been cast over the past couple of weeks and it's all come down to one final decision - which of the Cliffs of Moher or Skellig Michael deserve to be named Ireland's best tourism site?
.
If we're being completely honest, the Cliffs of Moher were favourites from the beginning to at least get to the final. It was just a matter of whether another site could put up a decent challenge and Skellig Michael has really stepped up. The UNESCO World Heritage site off the Kerry coast has breezed past everything it's come up against to the extent that we really can't call this anymore. This could go either way so feel free to head on over to our Stories and cast your vote
.
We've spent plenty of time over the past couple of weeks talking about how you can avoid the busy section of the Cliffs of Moher and see other spectacular parts of these famous cliffs. However, when deciding the best visitor attraction in Ireland, there's a lot to be said for accessibility and it's worth focusing on just how incredible the standard view of the Cliffs of Moher really is. You park your car, cross the road and this is the view that immediately greets you when you approach the edge (or at least as close as you can get to it at this point). Skellig Michael may be more of an adventure but is there anything in Ireland quite like that feeling when you see the Cliffs of Moher unfold before you for the first time?

Here is an image from Keem Strand on Achill Island taken in December 2017. As you can see the weather was not great, heavy showers, I had travelled to Keep to capture the sunrise, I did not get a sunrise because those heavy clouds moved in and covered it, but this was taken when they parted and allowed a small window of magical light.
