    Before you go - watch some 'Father Ted' episodes. It's the funniest TV series I've ever seen and it makes you want to go to Ireland. But not to Craggy Island ;-)))

    Go to see Donegal Castle

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Unfortunately, we couldn't. In March 1999, while in County Donegal, we tried to get in to see Donegal Castle - the day we were there, it was closed.

    Go see the Boyne valley

    by bkathryn Updated Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In February 1999, we went to Drogheda, the Boyne valley and a number of historic sites there. These included the Hill of Slane, where St. Patrick supposedly lit a bonfire for Christianity in 433 AD.

    Check out the pubs!

    Definitely check out one of the many pubs. The Brazen Head is supposed to be Ireland's oldest - established in 1198! We went there for lunch in May 1993.

    Learn some Irish

    by wadekorzan Written Sep 1, 2002

    When driving through the southern Connemara district west of Galway, signs are in Irish and you may not even recognize the names of cities that you may be looking for on the map.

    Can you read the sign?

    TOMB

    To walk through a celtic cemetery is always a mystic promenade. Celtic crosses, huge tombs and a certain mystic air around them, makes it even more adventurous
