Ireland’s urban and dynamic capital city Dublin is historic and picturesque, while at the same time brimming with exciting nightlife and activities. From the Guinness Storehouse to Dublin Zoo, the city’s castle to the Dublin Museum of Writers, not to mention Ireland’s National Gallery, Botanical Gardens and its National Leprechaun Museum, Dublin features heavily on any list of things to do in Ireland.

Ireland may not have the warmest climate, but don’t let that stop you from hitting the waves off the west coast. There’s some great surf up that way and, in fact, various surfing champions give credit to this area, naming the region among the world’s surfing top spots.

Surfing is not the only reason to enter the chilly waters of Ireland’s west coast; this is also how you get from the mainland to the Aran Islands, a group of three islands in the mouth of the Galway Bay.

Although it’s celebrated almost everywhere in the world, it’s easy to forget the real reason for this Irish celebration; for many, it’s just a fun excuse to dress up in green, talk in a bad Irish accent,  and consume too much Guinness.
