There is a distinct characteristic to Ireland and its cities. Home and inspiration to the hit series "Game of Thrones", Ireland's fairytale landscapes offer an exhilarating experience. It is also a celebration of great flavors, satisfying every foodie's dreams. A walk on the mountain ranges will offer you dramatic views of this island, with the Northern Lights dancing on the horizon. A drive along the Causeway Coastal Route is the road trip of a lifetime that you'll wish would never end. Flights to Ireland will land you at one of the major international airports around the country located in Dublin, Cork, Shannon or Knock. Aer Lingus, Ryanair and Thomson Airways are the airlines connecting this country to major destinations in Europe and around the rest of the world.
The city of Dublin is the largest city of Ireland and the seat of administration for this country. Divided by the River Liffey, the north side of this city is bustling, with a hoard of attractions including the Phoenix Park housing the Dublin Zoo. The south side of this city is complete with shopping malls, the famous Trinity College and the Dublin Castle. Knock, even though a small village, is the most visited place in the island. Famous for apparitions of the Virgin Mary, the Knock shrine is visited by almost 1.5 million pilgrims every year. The ruggedly dense forests of Killarney National Park, the Cliffs of Moher, the Irish Whiskey Museum - or the Guinness - are not to be missed when touring this country.
