Ireland is hand-down one of my favorite countries on Earth: mystical and flashy, traditional and modern, wild and hidden. As I’ve been living in Ireland for over one year and have travelled back there five times already, I am feeling truly compelled and excited to share with you my passion for this lovely and welcoming country.

In the following Ireland Travel Guide, you will discover the most mind-blowing Irish locations and find all the information you need to plan and budget your upcoming trip to the emerald island.

A Rainy and Tipsy Journey into

the Magical Kingdom of Fairies and Leprechauns.

Some days the incessant rain makes you hate it. At the moment the sun comes out though, the colors are set on fire and the eye-hurting green of the landscape comes to shake your soul; reminding you that nature is magical, greatly unpredictable, and because of that, hauntingly gorgeous.

The human factor too, adds to the beauty of the island. The Irish Culture is remarkably rich of traditions, history, legends, customs and music; all of which, are always by your side and will accompany you on your journey through the island; no matter where you go.

Is Ireland for you?

If you love dark beer, I tell you already: YES!

Stout aside, Ireland is not for everyone and if it’s for you it depends on which kind of trip you’re looking for: Ireland is for nature lovers, rain lovers, hikers, for pub lovers, it’s for those who love to discover and dive into history and legends.

Weather is coldish and rainy year-round, thus, Ireland is not your destination if you plan to relax in the warmth of the sun (although on a lucky summer day, pic-nicking in nature could be fantastic).

The best months to visit Ireland are April – May – September when the sun shines longer and nature is at its best).
