Best places to see in Ireland

The Salmon Weir Bridge
In 1818, this bridge was built to bring convicts from the courthouse to jail. Nowadays, crowds gather here freely to witness shoals of salmon swim and leap upstream during spawning season. Avid anglers book a precious spot of river months before they actually wade in. You don’t need a reservation to catch a romantic sunset – but bring an umbrella, just in case!

Galway Cathedral
The Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St Nicholas. The official name is a mouthful, but the interior may leave you speechless. Built in 1965, its design mixes Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque features using local limestone and Connemara marble. There’s no guided tour per se but friendly choristers sometimes show visitors around after Sunday mass.

The Claddagh
Popular areas
This area thrived as an Irish-speaking fishing village even as Galway succumbed to Norman rule in 1230. Ask a local pub owner to teach you “cúpla focal” (a few words) and make a friend for life – the area lends its name to the famous Claddagh friendship ring. Across the River Corrib, the Long Walk quay’s colourful collage of cottages makes a perfect picture postcard.

Dublin Zoo
With almost a million visitors every year, Dublin Zoo is one of the city’s most popular attractions. And why wouldn’t it be, with a fabulous array of birds, reptiles, giraffes, ostriches, white rhinos, lions and even gorillas – all spread over 28 glorious hectares of Phoenix Park. Its famous tearooms were built in 1898, and have since been joined by the Meerkat Restaurant!

General Post Office (GPO)
Well, you can buy stamps at Dublin’s General Post Office (universally known as the GPO), but this landmark is better known for the more bloodthirsty fact that it was here, in Easter 1916, that republican rebels faced the might of the British Army. You can’t miss its magnificent Greek-style portico. The three statues are Mercury, Hibernia and Fidelity.
Accommodation near General Post Office (GPO)
Galway City Museum
This humble museum serves bite-sized chunks of local history and folklore. Spot the Galway hooker, a traditional fishing boat that hangs from the ceiling. See the gleaming silverwork of the Civic Sword and Great Mace, important city artefacts that date back over 300 years. Learn about Pádraic Ó Conaire, a giant of Irish-language literature whose tiny statue resides here.
