ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Ireland is a grand and beautiful scene, one with ancient castles, mystic sites and stunning landscape vistas scattered across its countryside.
From the historic capital city of Dublin, west to the Cliffs of Moher, and from the Lakes of Killarney, north to the rugged landscape of Tory Island, this country has more than its share of things to see and do.

- Times to Travel: Ireland is best visited April through September, as the days are longer and temperatures pleasant. In July and August (the peak travel months), attractions are frequently crowded with long admission lines, so be early and beat the crowds.
As fall comes to an end, many points-of-interest close, as winter brings rain and wind to Ireland, especially in the central and west. Heavy precipitation is common along the western coastal areas.
Winter temperatures countrywide are more moderate than one might expect, and lows rarely dip below freezing. The higher elevations receive some snow.
