(1) Dublin – the largest city in Ireland and the capital city of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin is most certainly deserving of a few nights stay in any visit to Ireland. A city oozing with history from its Viking past, Dublin is also a modern cosmopolitan conurbation with a population of approx 1.5 million in the greater metropolitan area. A very affluent city it has a wide choice of modern hotels, restaurants and night life. A good base from which to tour some of the attractions of Irelands ‘Ancient East’ including Glendalough, Newgrange and the National Stud in Kildare. The city itself has find historic attractions like Christchurch, St Patrick’s Cathedral. Guinness Storehouse and Trinity College. There are extensive connections to the US and Canada from Dublin, therefore its a good choice to stay in the city either at the start or final days of an Ireland Tour.
(2) Kilkenny – A medieval city some 50 miles from Dublin and well worth a night or two. Again good hotels and restaurants are available. The city itself has withinin its boundary the magnificent Kilkenny Castle and St. Canice’s Cathedral. Kilkenny is well worth a visit on any tour of Ireland.
(3) Kinsale, Co. Cork – in the very south of Ireland this beautiful coastal town with a strong Spanish influence is a gem well worth at least two nights. The town itself is known as the gourmet capital of Ireland and it has an abundance of good restaurants. There is also very good accommodation in the area. A gateway to the unspoilt scenery of West Cork, the area around Kinsale offers stunning scenery and considerable maratime history. Again well worth a visit.
