The Republic of Ireland is located on an island west of Great Britain and is home to around 4.7 million people. It is estimated that more than 70 million people of Irish heritage live in other parts of the world, and many want to visit the land of their ancestors. The country also has many visitors with no Irish connection who are drawn to Ireland's lush landscapes, rich history, and warm and friendly people.


1. Visit a Castle

With around 30,000 castles and ruins around the island, it can be hard not to visit a castle; but there are some that stand out. Lovers of ghost stories may want to visit Leap Castle, the most haunted castle in Europe. The Rock of Cashel dates back to 1200 and hosts an extensive collection of Celtic art. At Kylemore Castle, you can walk through Ireland's largest walled garden. Some castles, including Ashford, have rooms available for guests who want to spend a night like royalty.
