Where to Go in Ireland
Dublin, Ireland’s capital and most populous city, is only 6 hours 30 minutes from New York City. Don’t miss the Dublin Castle, built in the early 13th century, and be sure to visit the Dublin Writers Museum to soak in Irish literary and cultural history. Learn the story behind iconic Irish libations at the Guinness Storehouse and Old Jameson Distillery.
Shannon, on the eastern end of Ireland and located in County Clare, is a new town, built up in the 20th century. Shannon Airport allows for easy access to Limerick, Ireland’s third largest city. Limerick is home to King John’s Castle and St. John’s cathedral.
Belfast is the capital and largest city in Northern Ireland. Known too much for the wrong reasons, largely sectarian violence throughout the 20th century, Belfast has recently emerged as a hotspot for tourism. Attractions include Belfast Castle, built by the Normans in the late 12th century and St. Anne’s Cathedral, the focal point of the bustling Cathedral Quarter in Belfast.
