Doesn’t matter whether you are just visiting, or came here for a “moment” but stayed for a while.
While living in Ireland you experience the everyday magic and notice that it’s beautiful out there
with so many interesting things to see, try, do.
Here is a list of things to do around here. You can’t leave Ireland not trying or seeing that:
1. Taste the sea food chowder. The typical Irish fish soup, on a creamy or tomato base. One tiny
bowl will warm and fill you up till the bottom.
2. Watch the Hurling match. The rules are simple: you run on the field with a stick that looks like a
hockey stick, but it’s not, cause it is flat at the end and then you hit, throw, catch the ball at the
same time smashing the opponents as you are the rugby player… So…the rules are simple…more
or less. You just need to experience those emotions.
3. Visit Spike Island by night. Night tour to the abandoned prison on an island near Cobh. For sure
you will feel the presence of lost ghosts.
4. Road trip. Take a car tour by the coast, drive around the island. There are plenty of amazing
views to admire.
– Dingle Peninsula, Rings of Kerry, Cliffs of Moher, Howth or Ballycotton cliff walk, old castles as
Dromoland castle, or the one in a breathtaking Killarney park, Wild Atlantic way. Ireland gives you
never ending list of possibilities.
5. Irish night. Enjoy the pint of Guiness in an old Irish pub with some life music. You’d be surprised
how many excellent musicians you can meet in local bars. If you are lucky there might be an Irish
dance show, or you can even get a chance to try it yourself. Even if you feel like you are not the
best, this would be the most cheerful dance you’ve ever tried.
6. Go out on the street on some festival day. If there is a big day coming, you feel it in your guts
that the whole surrounding is getting ready. And no one can celebrate those better as Irish people.
Whether it is St. Paddy’s day, film, whisky, burger festival, summer events in Galway or the huge
7. Go out at night. Go out, feel the city, meet the locals. Everyone is full of love, dancing, giving the
compliments to strangers, buying each other drinks, singing on the streets. Just be part of it.
8. Go on a Whisky tour at Jameson factory. You need to get to know the history…and you need to
get to try this whisky!!
9. Get a golf course. There are plenty of golf fields in Ireland. If you are a golf fanatic, you’d be
amazed. If not.. follow point 5.
10. Try to learn some Irish language. For sure you will notice many Irish signs out there.
