I used to live in Ireland a few years ago in County Tipperary which is a beautiful green country in the South of Ireland. Whilst I was there the scenery and the people really blew me away. The little towns in Ireland offer so much culture and history, whilst the colourful houses and friendly people give it character. There are many towns that are lovely and small, whilst having an amazing view in the background full of hills. I loved my time in Ireland and can't wait to go back.

Whatever you are into, being it festivals, alcohol or history. Ireland has something for everyone. Ireland even also has some of the best road trips in the world not to be missed.
