Hi, I am new here. I like traveling all over the world. Although I am from Japan, I am in the United States now. I love to know about different countries.

Now I am thinking to travel to Ireland because I watched new Irish indie movie called Red Roses and Petrol in screening.

I didn't know about Ireland at all. But I want to taste real whiskey and know irish culture now because of the movie.

So does anyone who has been to Ireland tell me about Ireland????

kathryn77 knows a lot about Scotland, she might know about Ireland too.

Until she sees this thread, I'll direct you to some awesome Ireland blogs where you can read up about it:

Hey! You're in luck because I just moved to Dublin, but have visited loads before as well! I have also been to Cork, Shannon on the west and know about Donegal too as I have family from there. Also have some family from Northern Ireland too. What do you want to do, when do you want to go, what do you want to see?? Ireland is beautiful!! I haven't seen that film, but there is loads to do and see - give me some timescales and things and what you're most interested in......

Though I haven't done extensive traveling in Ireland, I definitely recommend the west coast (Galway area). Especially if you are a nature loving person. The landscape is absolutely beautiful and the Irish hospitality is great!!!

I would definitely recommend you doing a bit of research before going though so that you know what exactly it is you're looking for, however, upon arrival there are many people that would give you advice on where you could find the best Irish music, good food, great shopping areas etc.

Hope you have a good time, it's a gorgeous country!!!

Hi,

Ok so I'm totally late getting onto this thread but I think the best website for Ireland is www.discoverireland.ie as it gives all upcoming festivals as well as places to visit, stay and eat etc.

Enjoy!

Mastercard and Lonely Planet have got a nice site with tips and deal for Ireland



To try not to quote a more famous saying, my immediate thought on this was...

"For buying tickets for travel there's mastercard...
.....for knowledge on destinations there's travelpod"
