The Island of Ireland

The Republic of Ireland broke away from the United Kingdom in 1922.  Northern Ireland is still part of the United Kingdom and occupies about 1/5 of the island.  The island of Ireland is in the North Atlantic Ocean and borders the Irish Sea to the east and the Celtic Sea to the south.  The landscape is mostly flat with some rolling hills.  The west coast has sheer cliffs that drop sharply to the Atlantic Ocean.

Place to Drive

Dublin is the capital and biggest city in Ireland.  It is located on the east coast of the island next to the Irish Sea.  Castles, museums, historic buildings and tranquil parks are a few of the attractions you will find in Dublin.  The Dublin Castle is the major focal point of the city and a must-visit for any tourist.  For a modern structure, check out the Dublin Spire.  A 120-meter  steel barb stretching into the Irish sky with a base diameter of 3 meters and a tip diameter of only 15 cm.  Other fun places to visit in Dublin include the National Gallery, the Irish Museum, St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Guinness Storehouse tour.

Drive the rental car to the west coast cities of Shannon, Galway, Sligo, or Limerick to enjoy the sea cliffs and ports of Ireland.  You will enjoy spectacular views from the top of the island as you gaze out to the vast Atlantic Ocean.  Watch the ships roll in to Galway harbor and navigate to the unloading docks.

If you want to get a taste of the historic Irish culture, play a round of golf at one to the oldest courses in the world.  Ireland has a rich history in golf and they boast a plethora of amazing places to play.  Try the traditional links at Curragh or tempt the new venue at the K Club.
