Ireland, aptly nicknamed “Emerald Isle,” will greet you with breathtaking views and a rich culture that you can take in to your heart’s content. You will experience its friendly locals; the tragedy behind their intriguing history, and a whole dynamic landscape to explore. This island, renowned as “the land of saints and scholars,” boasts their Nobel Prize winners, which they have plenty more than any other country in the world. On top of it, Ireland’s capital city, Dublin, was named a UNESCO City of Literature in 2010.

Endless places to visit, and tourist attractions abound are waiting for you in the heart of Ireland.  With this list of the top tourist traps in mind, here’s what you can discover and do in this stunning country.

Killarney National Park and Muckross House & Gardens

The Victorian Era Muckross House, Traditional Farms, and Gardens settled in the amazing Killarney National Park should be one of the first must-go places to visit if you have plans to enter the Kerry region.

This mansion exhibits the splendor and glory of the olden times while dominating over the shores of Muckross Lake, one of the three Killarney lakes recognized worldwide for their grandeur and majesty.

While walking upon its scenic routes of the Killarney National Park and Lakes, you will see more fantastic sceneries that are revealed view after view. 

Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

It wouldn’t be complete to visit the Shannon region without stopping here. Its 15th-century castle is Ireland’s best-preserved medieval fortress and was carefully restored in the 1950s. The castle will take you back in time with its fine collection of 15th-16th century furnishings and tapestries.

The region’s amazing Folk Park recreates a realistic environment of how Ireland was back a century ago. This village is nestled in a rural setting, featuring more than 30 structures, including farmhouses, streets to explore, and village shops for kids and families to enjoy.

Killarney National Park

UNESCO recognized the park as a Biosphere Reserve in 1981, and it is part of a special protection area. The MacGillycuddy Reeks, including the three lakes, and the eastern area of the Purple Mountains are situated within this national park of Ireland. Waterfalls and woods abound in this park, as well as the native oak and yew woods.

In Killarney National Park, there is an abundance of evergreen trees, bushes, and lichens that survive in the park’s climate. The park also houses Ireland’s only wild herd of red deer, as well as a variety of other animals, birds, and insects.

Wicklow Mountains National Park

The Wicklow Mountains National Park is Ireland’s only national park situated in the country’s eastern side. It is Ireland’s largest national park, covering over 20,000 hectares.

This national park, which was established in 1991, hosts a variety of highlands, lowlands, wooded valleys, streams, and woods. Several endangered species of animals reside in this park, including rare otters and 10 bat species.
