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
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.
Discover ancient hilltop forts
In March 1999, while in County Donegal, we discovered this ancient hilltop fort - Grianán Ailagh was a cultural centre for at least 4000 years.

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
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.
THE IRISH LOVE THEIR BEER...
THE IRISH LOVE THEIR BEER (ALTHOUGH I SUPPOSE THIS ISN'T SO UNIQUE TO THE IRISH). HERE'S A SHOT OUTSIDE A GALWAY PUB THE MORNING AFTER...
TOMBTo walk through a celtic...
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
