Discover East Ireland
Why not visit the beautoful Eastern Ireland? Rolling green hills is the sight you will see from the Gravity Bar at the top of Dublin’s Guinness Storehouse. One of the nicest drives with optional walks en route is to head for Roundwood; 238 meters above sea level and surrounded by some of the most spectacular views in the country. At one side of the village you will find the lakes of the Vartry reservoir, and on the opposite side is the Wicklow mountains.
Wicklow Hills and the village of Ashford are also hidden gems. Stroll the woods of Devil’s Glen or visit Mount Usher Gardens spread over eight hectares on the Vartry River. Along the coast is Wicklow Head. Getting further away from the city, the coastal areas of Connemara, The Burren or The Ring of Kerry offer a more relaxing vibe. The Irish are known for their friendly and welcoming nature which makes these areas even more of a treat, considering that the area is rich with some of Ireland’s most breathtaking scenery.
A short drive to Arklow town, one of the earliest and busiest ports of the east coast, is an equally pleasant option. If you want to take a break from the great outdoors, hide out in The Maritime Museum for a bit. The main road hugs the wooded Vale of Avoca heading towards the Avoca Handweavers where weavers still ply their ancient, yet still valuable trade.
