The Emerald Isle, as Ireland is nicknamed, has it all. Postcard landscapes of green fields with grazing sheep, mystical castles and fairy tale cottages that will take you back in time, and countless places to experience the craic with locals. Whether you want to explore the Irish countryside, or are planning a city break in Ireland, you will be seduced by this enchanting island before you leave.

Hostels in Ireland are mainly situated along the coast and in the main cities like Dublin, Galway and Cork. The latter being small enough cities, the youth hostel of your choice will undoubtedly be close to the main attractions. No matter where you stay, you won’t have to break the bank for accommodation as cheap hostels are easy to find on the island. Most Irish hostels offer free breakfast, but some of the best hostels in Ireland will also provide you with walking tours, movie nights, quiz tournaments, live music and more!

Planning a city break? Dublin, cannot be overlooked, but smaller cities like Galway and Cork might surprise you. These two charming cities also boast plenty of cultural attractions as well as a vibrant nightlife, but as they are less touristy, which gives you a chance to connect with locals. If on the contrary you are looking for the magnificent wilderness of Ireland as seen in documentaries, visiting the West is a must. Connemara, the Ring of Kerry, the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher are among the most breath taking places to visit in the country.

The three main assets of Ireland are most probably: breathtaking landscapes, a rich culture and a welcoming people. To make the most of the natural scenery, hike the Wild Atlantic Way, the Ring of Kerry or the Wicklow Way to name just a few. If it’s Irish history and folklore you’re after, Dublin is the obvious choice, however, don’t overlook the Irish countryside as the island is peppered with castles, ancient churches and monastic houses. Finally, to mingle with the locals, you can join in the fun for Saint Patrick’s Day, watch the rugby, enjoy some Irish music at a local pub, or even take some traditional Irish dance classes!

The three international airports of the Republic of Ireland are situated in Dublin, Cork and Shannon. To get around Ireland, renting a car is a convenient option if you plan on touring the island at your own pace, but beware of sheep crossings on rural roads!
