When you search up Ireland on Google Maps, it's plain to see why people call this country the “Emerald Isle.” Though many people don't initially think of Ireland as a vacation spot, this country has a lot of attractions that make it a perfect place for tourists to explore. Once you sample the wonderful drinks, explore the spooky castles, and learn about the country's culture, it will be difficult to leave.

Ireland is known for the many friendly, inviting, and lively pubs that can be found in almost every town. An Irish pub visit is an absolutely necessary stop for people who want to experience Irish cuisine.  At almost any pub that you will see, you'll find Irish bands playing music, people laughing, and of course, Guinness being served on tap. Some pubs also offer traditional Irish food, which makes it a must-see for gastronomes who want to try out food from the Emerald Isle. It's best to try Irish soda bread, or specialty pudding before you leave the country.

One of the most striking aspects of Irish culture is the folklore. Almost every location has a local legend, a mythical creature, or a ghost story behind it. It is because of the rich folklore of Ireland that locations such as Glasnevin Cemetery are so popular. There are even hotels that are reportedly haunted,  and they are often sold out because of the high volume of people who want to catch a glimpse of a ghost. We suggest booking a night at the Castle Inn in Dublin if you want to try to have your own Irish ghost hunt, which is reportedly haunted by a deceased poet from the 19th century.

Many festivals are held in Ireland that are solely devoted to preserving the rich culture that the country is known for. Gaelic music, Irish poetry, Irish dance performances, and storytelling are often the center of attention at these festivals. If you are a fan of the arts, we highly recommend attending the Festival of World Cultures, which takes place in Dun Laoghaire Town annually. Of course, if you can't book at trip during a festival, you can always take a tour that is led by a guide who happens to be an expert on the local culture.

Simply driving through the country is a pleasure. People who are touring Ireland for the very first time remark upon the picturesque scenery that they see while looking out the windows of their cars. Rolling hills, meadows filled with flowers, and glades filled with beautiful trees are quite commonplace in the Irish countryside. Don't be surprised if you fall in love with the pastoral appearance of this country. Make sure to take a map with you – it's easy to get lost in many parts of Ireland.

Ireland is a wonderful place to visit if you are enamored with the unique culture that it holds. Known for wonderful stories, mysterious creatures, sonorous music, and more, Ireland is one destination that you will want to put on your personal tourism map.
