Ireland Vacations

Summary
Ireland Vacation Packages are exactly what you need in order to organize such a vacation. Ireland is a mammoth-sized puzzle and every town represents a piece of it.
For every town & village in Ireland, there are castles & ancient architecture, museums and natural landmarks and of course, an unlimited amount of pubs strewn all along the way. You can get you fill of everything eclectic, medieval and all of the intricacies in-between.
The Irish are known worldwide for their hospitality and welcomes for travellers, they are very family oriented (kids can sit in pubs until 9 pm to be part of the community get-togethers!), so you do not have to worry too much about high crime rates here in Ireland.
You may not believe it, but there are beaches here if you can catch a sunny and half-warm day (Lackan Bay Beach in Killala and Ballyquin Beach in Ardmore).
Culture
The first signs of humans settling in Ireland were the Mesolithic around 7000 – 8000 B.C and the Neolithic showed up in 4500 B.C. Both cultures shared their knowledge base to each other for house building and the Neolithic were proficient in erecting stone monuments (similarly to the Scottish of the same time period).
Ireland Vacation Packages will further share with you the history of Ireland that has made it into what it is today. There are two languages spoken in Ireland, Irish and English and the overall culture is a Gaelic one with hints of Anglicisation and European and Americanisation added into the mix. Ireland loves its Irish harp and besides making it their national symbol, you can still hear the strings being gently stroked to this day.
Exploration
Castles are everywhere you look in Ireland, and with Ireland Vacations, you will discover Ballycarbery Castle (Caherciveen), Parke’s Castle (North Leitrim), Malahide Castle (Malahide), Lismore Castle (Lismore), Bunratty Castle (Bunratty), Glenveagh Castle (Glenveagh National Park), and Howth Castle (Howth) just to name a few of the lesser-known ones (yes, you can skip right to Blarney Castle).
For ancient structures that will make your eyes pop, visit the St. Michan’s Church in Dublin (founded in 1096), the Hall of the Red Earl in Galway City (13th Century structure), and the 13th Century Gothic Cathedral in Cashel. For something a bit more outdoorsy, visit Crag Cave, Horn Head Viewpoint in Dunfanaghy, the Mitchelstown Caves and the Drombeg Stone Circle.
Food
Vacation Packages in Ireland are going to reveal just how far the Irish would go to protect their cows from being eaten during the ‘Middle Ages’. A man’s social standing and overall worth was measured by how many cows he owned, so besides milking the cows, beef was not a food staple for the Irish people until many years later. Potatoes were introduced in the mid-16th Century and thus became a major food staple and continues to be so today.
Traditional foods that are consumed today have remained simple but hearty, such as bacon & cabbage or kale, Irish stew, potato pancakes (boxty), and breakfast is usually accompanied by black pudding (breakfast roll). Ireland is known for its whiskeys, beers, and Irish coffee production and can be sampled just about anywhere in Ireland.
Nightlife
Vacations in Ireland is also going to lead your evenings into the right direction with live music, singing and of course, drinking! In Dublin, some of the best spots to hit is Patrick Conway’s, the No Name Bar, the Front Lounge, O’Donoghue’s and the Beggar’s Bush.
