Must See Stops For Your Trip to Ireland

Ireland, Adventure Travel, travel destinations April 3, 2018

 It’s a long way until next St. Patrick’s Day, but if you still have some partying left in you after the holiday, get yourself to the Emerald Isle for an authentic Irish cultural experience. With so many regions worth checking out, Ireland is best explored by car, either driving yourself or, better yet, with a driver-guide.

Colonial charm emanates from the town center and spills onto green hillsides. At just over 6,000 feet of elevation and with an average temperature in the 60s Fahrenheit, walking into San Miguel feels like stepping into a dream. Fair warning, though, if you’re driving in -- especially at night -- navigating the narrow and sharply angled cobblestone streets can be more of a nightmare.
