Insider advice for your Ireland vacation

Extremely cheap Ryanair flights! 5 stars
I've recently bought a return flight to krakow, Poland for £10 (13 euro) including all taxes and expenses! It is well worth a look on their site if you are looking to go somewhere different in europe for a few days or even if you hadn't planned to go abroad you will find it is cheaper to do this than perhaps go on holiday in your own country. Especially where eastern europe is concerned as accommodation starts from 5 euros per night.
I have flown with Ryanair quite a few times now and have always managed to get cheap return flights for about £30 (40 euro) including taxes and expenses but it seems to be even cheaper at the moment so don't miss out!

Overview 4 stars
Ireland has got a reputation as a Guiness swiggin, beer guzzling, rowdy nation. But there is so much more to it than that. The capital, Dublin, is a great place to start. It is lively and fun with lots of tourist attractions for all types of people. I recommend the jail, the Jameson Whisky distillery and the Dublinia exhibition as well as a few drinks or a bit to eat in the trendy Temple Bar area. Next stop Cork, with it's beautiful countryside and stunning beaches, Cork is tipped as the next French Riviera (pity about the weather). Drive up the west side of Ireland and take in some stunning scenery. Visit avoca (where Ballykissangel was filmed) and take in the beaches in Donegal (a popular holiday spot for many natives).


Nightlife in Ireland 1 stars
I havent been to Ireland for years the last time I went I was a little girl and I only remember a few vague things-Giants Causeway, Cork and Belfast. I gather there are sone fabulous coast lines too. Can anyone make some recommendations where I ought to go when I return? Any secret places that shouldn't be missed?


The Burren 5 stars
The Burren is an amazing section of western Ireland in County Clare, that is covered with rock, and little soil, but contains some of the most diverse array of plant life on the planet! The Burren is an amazing area, and there is much to see. There are many portal dolmens scattered about, with the most famous being Poulnabrone.
When Poulnabrone was discovered, they found the bones of a baby, six children and about 20 adults. Also found was a stone axe, a couple of polished beads, and several other trinkets. The grave is quite old, and it is unimagineable how the ancient people were able to construct it.
As you drive through the rest of the burren, take notice of the differences in the layers of rock. If you have time, visit The Ailwee Caves - we didn't have time, but I hear they are well worth the visit!


Ring of Kerry 5 stars
The Ring of Kerry is an amazing drive in Southwestern Ireland. You start out in Killarney, and follow the signs around the Kerry Peninsula - easy enough any time of year but the main tourist season - June thru September. During this period, it is difficult to get around, as there are Tour Buses EVERYWHERE. My advice - go to Ireland in March. The weather is way better than in the States; it was sunny the whole time we were there. We were able to do the whole Ring of Kerry, with tons of stops to see Ring Forts, views and stop for lunch in three hours. I've heard of it taking a whole day, because the traffic is atrocious! The views are worth it, and I highly recommend this very popular area of Ireland, but be careful of the time of year you choose!
