Vacationing In Ireland: A Memorable Green Adventure Awaits You

By Ben Pate

[I:]Green as in shamrock green will be the color of your adventure if you decide to set sale for Ireland. But while Ireland can boast some of the most beautiful green spaces in the world, Ireland is certainly a lot more. You can visit ancient castles or wonder through museums. Visit some of the world’s most famous golf courses or picnic within the view of Irelands legendary ocean side cliffs. But before you can enjoy this paradise, you and your family will need a passport, even the smallest in your party. And children’s passports are easily obtained from a passport agency and you can find all the information necessary from your home computer.

The fascinating history of Ireland dates back centuries and don’t be surprised if ever place you walk takes you back in time. Learning about the rich heritage of Ireland can be done through many guided tours or by independent exploration of the various medieval castles and museums. One place you will not want to miss is Blarney Castle. This is where you will encounter the famous Blarney Stone up close and personal. The legend surrounding this famous rock deals with communication. Supposedly, if you kiss the Blarney stone, you will never be at a loss for words again. You will find yourself being labeled verbally eloquent for the rest of your days. Another interesting visit can be made to the site of the passage tomb in Newgrange in County Meath. During the winter and summer solstices, almost miraculously, the oversized burial mound covering an entire acre is lit up by the sun. While difficult to describe, once viewed, it will not be forgotten.

Now you can’t visit Ireland without spending some time in an authentic Iris pub. Irish bartenders will be happy to treat you to some of the most famous beers in the world as you enjoy the sight, sounds, and local people. The Irish people are warm and friendly and sharing daily joys and problems in these drinking establishments is a rich part of Irish culture. But remember, international travel demands that you have a passport so if yours is lost or damaged, U.S. passport replacement can be accomplished quickly and easily with the use of your home computer or by visiting a local passport office.

One of the best attractions of Ireland is simply exploring. Whether it’s getting lost in the streets of Ireland’s villages, hiking to see a beautiful mountain vista, or discovering a castle, simply letting Ireland guide you is one of the best ways to experience the country. Two popular places to hike are the Mountains of Mourne and Rathlin Island, both of which are said to feature some of the most beautiful Irish landscapes.

Dublin is the heart of Ireland. Whether you’re looking for a wild night on the town or a low-key tourist experience, Dublin has plenty of options. If you are a beer lover, take the time to visit the Guinness Storehouse. This brewery tells the 250 year long story of Guinness beer and ends with a free pint of it in the Gravity Bar. Shopping in Dublin is also a must. Grafton Street and Henry Street are two of the most popular shopping districts in Ireland, featuring fashionable department stores and designer discount stores. Theatre, pubs, and nightclubs comprise Dublin’s after-hours entertainment scene.

A trip to Ireland will give you and your family many cherished lifetime memories but you will need to arm your children with children’s passport before you can experience this wondrous land. Naturally, the adults in your group will need a passport, too, so if yours is damaged or lost, a U S passport replacement is simple and easy.
