The range of places to visit in Ireland is massive. Among Ireland's most famous attractions are places such as the Giant's Causeway, the Guinness Storehouse, Newgrange, and Glendalough. Many of the places to visit in Ireland are of a historical significance, but for visitors with a more modern outlook there is also an excellent choice.
Families coming to Ireland are well catered for when it comes to fun and exciting things to see and do. Examples of these are Dublin Zoo (third oldest Zoo in the world), the Irish National Heritage Park, Fota Island Wildlife Park, Bunratty Castle and the Marble Arch caves.
People interested in spectacular outdoor scenery are spoilt when they come to Ireland. All parts of the country have their particular charming and sometimes dramatic scenery. Areas such as the Wicklow Mountains National Park, the Cliffs of Moher, the Glens of Antrim, and the Ring of Kerry boast outstanding natural beauty.
