Ireland Travel Guide

by our Ireland expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyLet’s talk about Ireland. Because talking, the ‘craic’ as they have it in Gaelic, is a compulsory subject if you’re headed there. Guinness is important too, of course, because the Black Stuff comfortably lubricates the conversation to be had in any of the fine hostelries of Dublin’s Fair City. (Be warned that ‘Temple Bar’ is Dublin’s left bank or Latin Quarter, although there is also a pub of that name – very Irish!). Typically too, there’s a real statue of Molly Malone, although there’s doubt that the girl ‘so pretty’ ever existed. Of course, the fiction connection is endless – Swift, Joyce, Wilde, Shaw, O’Casey, Yeats, Beckett, Behan; all with their places of pilgrimage. But don’t let Dubliners persuade you life ends at the city boundaries. The Ring of Kerry boasts some of the finest landscapes in the world – though take an umbrella for the ‘soft weather’. The dramatic Atlantic coast with Galway Bay. Cork, Waterford and Wexford with their festivals (there are 16 film festivals alone in Ireland). As ever, there’s a lot to life in Ireland.
