WHO

Overview

If your next stop is Dublin…Limerick…Cork…Killarney, the Eurail Ireland Pass is indispensable. Although driving from county to county is an option, why miss out on some of the world’s most magical scenery by rail (talk about “wearing the green !”) that can be admired from your train’s window seat. Not to mention getting to know the locals riding the rail alongside you.

Although small in size, Ireland’s influence on the world has been remarkable, especially through the work of such writers as Joyce, Yeats (travel northwest to Sligo to visit his birthplace) Wilde, and Shaw.

And it’s a culture rich in adventure, history, and romance. Take time for a little retail therapy in one of Dublin’s many shopping districts. Tune-into opera at the Cork Opera House. Or sightsee at King John’s Castle in Limerick. And, of course, what trip to Ireland would be complete without enjoying a cold pint in any of the innumerable city pubs.
