Ireland is an island country in Europe that is chock full of history. Whether you and your loved one want to explore a medieval fortress or visit the home of one of Ireland’s many famous musicians, an Ireland honeymoon vacation has it all.
A romantic walk along the coast of Donegal is a great way to start your Ireland honeymoon vacation. Be sure to visit to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, where you can learn to pour the perfect pint and receive a certificate to show your friends and family the skills you learned while on your Ireland honeymoon vacation. Literature enthusiasts will want to visit the Dublin Writer’s Museum and music lovers will want to stop at Ennis, home to Ireland’s finest musicians.
No Ireland honeymoon vacation would be complete without kissing the Blarney Stone. Legend has it that those who kiss this stone, located in Blarney Castle, will be blessed with great charm and the gift of eloquence. Those seeking to discover more of Ireland’s past will want to visit Newgrange, the megalithic cemetery whose main tomb perfectly aligns with the sun during the winter solstice, as well as Cahir Castle, one of Ireland’s best preserved medieval fortresses.
The official currency of Ireland is the Euro, though credit cards are accepted in most tourist areas. The best time of year to book your Ireland honeymoon vacation is during the months of May, June and September, when the weather is temperate and the crowds are at a minimum.
