Enjoying Ireland's Cities

Irelands cities are all within easy reach of most European countries and only a few hours away from the USA. Travelling through the cities is as easy as getting there, with Dublin boasting a modern 21st century light-rail system that is the envy of many other European countries. Irish Architecture, parks, libraries, museums, history and culture are only as far as the nearest Irish city.Dublin: Dublin City is renowned around the world as being the home of James Joyce and the home of Guinness. The city boasts magnificent architecture, fine pubs and hotels and has several world class museums and libraries. Dublin is Ireland's capital city and is where the Irish Parliament - The Dáil - sits. There is much to see and do in Dublin and guided bus and walking ours are a popular way to see and 'feel' the city. You will be amazed at the friendliness and the welcome as you enjoy the city.

Cork: Cork City is Ireland's (republic) second city and in spite of its smaller size, competes well with Dublin in friendliness and welcome. It also compares well with Dublin in matters of history and culture, hosting a Famous Jazz Festival there each year and a Film Festival. Cork is a University City and has a University feel to it. Cork even competes with Dublin's Guinness and locals will tell you that a pint of Murphy's Stout can't be beaten.

Waterford: Waterford is Ireland's oldest city having been established by the Vikings in 914. It boats a wonderful Museum and holds the Catholic church records for several counties. Sadly the Waterford Crystal factory is now closed but a Waterford Glass outlet is still in the city. Lots of interesting walks in this city and during the summer you might see the Tall Ships that call here on their world tour. The volume of Port traffic going through Waterford is not as evident as it was in recent decades as most of the freight is now in containers and ships out of a terminal slightly below city centre.
