A Holiday In Ireland   by Stephen McBride

Thinking of taking a holiday in Ireland? Visiting Ireland on a holiday or vacation is a decision you will not regret. Ireland, although small, is a truly beautiful little country with a background steeped in culture and wonderful history. Ireland is primarily a Celtic nation, with an interesting mix of ancient and modern culture.

The population of Ireland is approximately 4.5 million, which is of course small for a country. It is split into 2 parts - the republic Of Ireland and Northern Ireland, which is still in fact a part of the UK. It consists of 32 counties, 26 which are in the ROI and 6 which are in N.Ireland.

Ireland has three world heritage sites - the Boyne valley (scene of a very famous battle), Great Skillig and the Giants causeway in Northern Ireland.

However there are numerous other wonderful places of interest to visit if you are thinking of taking a holiday to Ireland. The scenery is truly amazing, with miles of unspoilt greenery and fantastic cliffs where the Atlantic ocean crashes in.

The county of Donegal is one of the counties well worth a visit. There you will discover old Irish thatched cottages, which have remained untouched for over a hundred years and a visit wouldn't be complete without a walk on the beaches of Donegal, taking in the stunning cliffs of this Irish county.

Your holiday in Ireland probably would not be complete either without visiting Dublin, the capital city of Ireland - a city which has grown extremely popular with tourists taking a short break holiday to Ireland.

It is a city steeped in culture, both in terms of music and the arts. Of course it is also home to the world famous Guiness storehouse. In fact the Guiness brewery is the no1 international tourist visitor when it comes to a holiday in Ireland!

Yes a holiday to Ireland will guarantee a very enjoyable and memorable visit. So much to see and so much to do. Ireland is a country with connections the world over, having experienced a large exodus of its people who were scattered worldwide during the very hard times in Ireland hundreds of years ago.

That is one of the reasons why so many people with Irish roots are so keen to visit its wonderful shores each year and experience the delights of a holiday in Ireland. So if you have been considering visiting this great country, my advice is don't hesitate.
