The Emerald Isle hosts a mystical scenery of lush forests, soaring cliffs, ancient castles, and impeccable hiking trails. Attractions range from the cosmopolitan capital of Dublin, which is the home of the Guinness brewery, to the seafood of Kinsale and the 400-year-old Bushmill distillery located in County Antrim. The Cliffs of Moher are renowned for their visual beauty, stretching roughly 8½ miles against the sea, and hosting 20 different bird species. Meanwhile, the Giant’s Causeway, made up of some 40,000 basalt columns that rise from the sea resulting from a volcanic eruption, have drawn travelers and artists alike for years.
