    Pocket Guide: Ireland

    The Republic of Ireland offers rugged, romantic landscapes that are drenched in ancient lore and blessed by a warm tradition of poetry, song and hospitality.

    Vibrant Dublin and Cultural Cork

    Dublin is the Republic’s sassy, confident capital whose modern vibrancy is matched by its rich traditions. Here you can visit the Guinness storehouse, party till all hours, shop till you drop and take in the richly rewarding exhibits of the National Gallery and National Museum.

    County Down on Ireland’s southern coast, Cork is surrounded by a shoreline that is all secluded estuaries, rolling hills and historic harbours. In the city itself you are never too far from a flowing river or the vibrant cultural scene and energetic nightlife.

    Ireland’s Ever-Changing Landscapes

    There is an uncommonly rich variety of landscapes to please the eye in Ireland. The Atlantic brings with it warm winds that nurture a truly bewildering diversity of terrains. In just a matter of miles you can move from the lush side of a lake to a more primeval bogland.

    In the east of the island, for instance, the rocky Wicklow Hills are perfect for walkers but they suddenly transform into the horse-grazing plain of the Curragh, which is perfect for racehorses.

    Meanwhile, over on the west, in Connemara you can take a stroll that takes you from beach, mountain, fenland and on to the banks of a lough: and, if you set off after breakfast, you can still be back at your hotel for lunch!

    Remote Islands

    Just off the coast there is plenty to explore for those who want to get away from it all. Dotted off the west coast are islands that are rugged and truly remote. The Arans may be the most famous example, with their windswept swathes of limestone and fascinating prehistoric sites, but the austere beauty of the <b>Blasket Islands</b>, lying just off Kerry’s coast, is even further from the madding crowds.

    A Sense of Story and a Sense of History

    The Irish landscape truly comes to life when you look at it through the lens of the layers and layers of myth that has been laid over it throughout history. In this way piles of stones suddenly become the resting place of lovers escaping ferocious warriors.

    The Irish love of poetry and story can also be felt on a literary tour of Dublin, taking in the places where Joyce, Beckett, Wilde and Brendan Behan once frequented.

    Every stage of history makes its presence felt in Ireland. The awe-inspiring prehistoric tombs, stone circles and hill forts of Ireland can bring the distant past palpably close. The unbelievably intricate illustrated medieval manuscript that is the Book of Kells still looks as colourful as the day it was painstakingly crafted. There are fine churches, impressive castles, Martello towers and high crosses that punctuate the Irish countryside. You can visit stately homes in the country or take in the neoclassical institutions in the cities.

    Visit Ireland

    Ireland offers romantic legends, varied landscapes, beautiful beaches, a fascinating history and a warm welcome.

    To top it all off there is the promise of best pint of Guinness you’ve ever had: but you’ll have to be patient whilst you wait for it to settle!

    "Excellent hotel close to many attractions"
    Arrived in the morning after an overnight flight and were pleasantly surprised to learn that our room was ready for us. (we were not counting on being able to take a late morning nap after a long flight from the U.S). Guy at the reception was extremely friendly and professional and processed our check in very quickly. Good introduction to Irish hospitality... Our room was clean and although not large by American standards it had all the space my wife and I needed for a comfortable stay. Location is a big plus as the hotel is right next to O'Connel St. and close to many bus stops, shops and within walking distance of many attractions. Overall the experience at the Academy Plaza was very positive and we highly recommend this hotel.

    "Nice hotel only 15min walk from the city."
    Myself and my girlfriend stayed for 2 nights. Upon arrival we were late checking in (7pm) and as a result did not have enough time to make it to the city for dinner. The hotel staff were happy to accommodate us with a beautiful meal, all 5 mins before they closed. The hotel itself is beautiful with large rooms and only 15mins from Galway city.

    "Beautiful hotel overlooking lake"
    The hotel was beautiful with gorgeous views. Room was extremely comfortable. I can not give this an excellent rating simply due to the front desk staff. I found them to be less than friendly and when I asked a question I felt I was imposing. I also found it ironic that on display directly across from front desk was a map of the Ring of Kerry yet no mention of the road closer on a main road. Thankfully we had a map as GPS could not re-route us. Little changes in front desk attentiveness could have made this rating an excellent.

    "Really cute "
    This was adorable. Taking our luggage up the stairs to the third floor couldn't even dim my excitement about this place. oldfashioned looking house with modern amenities. We had a large room with king size bed and a sitting around. There was a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. Walk across the street and down the sidewalk a very short ways and you're inside Killarney national park. Next door there was a place to rent bikes and we rode all over the park. Easy walk or ride to muckross house and garden which is stunning and worth your time. The best part was the Ivy room bar attached the the hotel. We stayed there two nights and had three meals there. Make sure you have the Baileys cheesecake.
