Ireland


In Dublin get a Guinness in the somewhat famous Temple Bar, check out the world's tallest sculpture - the 121 metre high Spire of Dublin and have some Irish Stew cooked in dark beer.

But the real beauty lies in the countryside, which has some of the most scenic drives I've seen in Europe (albeit slightly challenging, with the narrow roads and driving on the "wrong" side): breathtaking cliffs, winding roads and lots of very green hills and pastures.

The Ring of Kerry is a good route to start off your trip, followed by the scenic Dingle Peninsula. Finally, the Cliffs of Moher are deservedly one of Ireland's most visited spots.

On your way you might bump into Ireland's beehive huts - dry-stone buildings dating from around 2000 BC.
