The list of things to do in Ireland goes far beyond downing a pint of Guinness in a local pub. Comprising rugged coastal areas, sprawling national parks, and long sandy beaches, Ireland's spectacular landscapes hide stories of leprechauns and romantic legends. Its gentle green hills are dotted with medieval castles, such as Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, where a 19th-century Irish village comes to life with a little help from costumed actors. The busy city of Dublin is home to some of Ireland's most visited attractions, including Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol, one of history's most notorious prisons.
