    The Top 5 Places To Visit In Ireland During Eid


    As temperatures rack up in the Middle East and summer fast approaching, what better place to cool down than on the beautifully temperate island of Ireland. With its rich history, stunning natural scenery and adventurous activities, the island of Ireland (which incorporates the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland), is a great spot to explore this Eid al-Fitr.


    1. Giant’s Causeway – One of the most beautiful spots in the whole of Northern Ireland and one of the most ‘Instagrammed’ locations in Europe, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Giant’s Causeway is a geologist’s dream, with striking basalt rocks poking out of the crashing waves. It is a ‘must-see’ for any tourist visiting Northern Ireland. Indeed, Lonely Planet suggested, the Causeway Coast is the number one place to visit in 2018.


    1. Dublin – The capital of the Republic of Ireland and a superb cultural and historical hub. Take a tour of the thirteenth century Dublin Castle, the Chester Beatty library that contains ancient artefacts including some of the oldest Quran’s in the world, and pick up some designer brands and souvenirs in the pretty shopping area of Grafton Street.


    1. The Wild Atlantic Way – Take a road trip along the Wild Atlantic Way, with its sweeping panoramas, pristine beaches and rugged clifftops. The carefree roads of Ireland are not the six-lane thoroughfares of the Middle East, but rather winding and picturesque, with numerous places to stop and enjoy a picnic.


    1. Cliffs of Moher – the best way to see this Republic of Ireland destination is by boat, circling underneath the 200 metre high towering cliffs. Take a tour with Doolin2Aran Ferries or take a fishing boat to catch local fare along the Clare Coast or Aran Islands.


    1. Game of Thrones locations – Why wait until 2019 for the next series of the epic fantasy television programme, when you can visit the real thing? The fictional TV scenery of Winterfell is shot at Castle Ward in County Down, while the incredible tunnel of trees of the King’s Road in the series can be found in Ballymoney in County Antrim, and are colloquially known as The Dark Hedges. If you’re a fan of the TV series, live the real life locations in Northern Ireland.
