Eire is a popular destination, and its generally laid back people make it clear why. Dublin is, however, slightly flat as far as I am concerned, and its culture of pubs and Guinness does little for me. More pleasant are its suburbs by the sea, and the countryside on the whole, which is green and welcoming, when it is not raining, that is.
Highlight: Incomprehensible Irish accents.
