It’s impossible not to fall in love with Dublin’s stately Georgian houses, gregarious locals, laid back lifestyle and yes, even the rainy weather! This incredible city has a lifetime’s worth of attractions, so don’t be surprised if you want to come back as soon as you leave. Just some of the must-do’s include pouring a pint of the ‘black stuff’ at the Guinness Storehouse, viewing the Book of Kells, and people watching on Grafton Street from Bewley’s Cafe.

Ireland’s smallest – but most spirited – city is Kilkenny, in the heart of the midlands. The majestic Kilkenny Castle sits in the centre of the town, overlooking savvy shoppers and rowdy revellers, while just up the main street is Ireland’s newest attraction, the Smithwicks Experience (Kilkenny’ answer to the Guinness Storehouse). Not far away is one of Ireland’s most splendid manor homes, Mount Juliet, where you can (and should) live like royalty for a day.
