You ever wanted to visit a country with chilly wind and light drizzle all day? UK is too main stream, try Ireland. It's an amazing country island in the north Atlantic. I visited just one place though, Dublin, but the trip was totally worth it. My suggestion would be to visit it during Christmas (contrary to some other views of it not being the best time). This time if the year, you will feel the festivities all around. Starting from Christmas market at the Dublin castle, to enjoying your cocktails in a 200 year old home turned pub, Peruke and Periwig, from taking the Hop on Hop Off bus tour of the city, to the amazing street talent in the George's street, from the taking a sip of the best beer of all time, Guinness beer, to just walking along the Trinity college area. It is simple so refreshing. This place has the most courteous people I have ever met in my life. My personal suggestions - do visit these places to get a feel of the modern Irish culture. Although most of the people don't speak Irish on the northern side, but you will definitely get some friendly bus driver, who would tell you how to greet in Irish( Dia Dhuit ).
Highlight of my trip - Got a taste of the local crowd in this amazing bar, Peruke and Periwig. It has some amazing cocktails on the menu and some great bar tenders.😉 Try Back in Black!
