Ireland has been a tourist destination for many different reasons; the magical folklore in its history, Guinness and of course, its stunning attractions. Irish heritage and culture can be found at every turn, from its Irish knitted sweaters to its live music in traditional pubs. Ireland carries a very special reputation that sets it apart from the rest of the world, so if you’re planning a visit then you’re in for a treat. With so many different breath-taking sights to take in, it doesn’t matter if it’s your first visit or your tenth; you’ll still find some hidden gems along the way.

Steeped in culture, Ireland has a lot to offer its visitors. Forget your perception of the country and its stereotypes, and get involved in the real Ireland to uncover its charm! So, what are some of the best cultural sights to visit while you’re there?

Skellig Islands

The Skellig Islands sit just off the coast of County Kerry, and they are a popular spot for both tourists and natives alike. Made up of 2 islands, the larger one is known as Skellig Michael and was home to a monastic settlement sometime in the 6th century until the 13th century. With 600 steps to reach the stone huts that were used by the monks, it’s a fascinating sight that plays a huge part in Ireland’s history.

The Skellig Islands are home to some of the largest collections of wildlife such as puffins, gannets and storm petrels. Every year, hundreds of birds migrate to the Skelligs to nest.


Dublin has often been named the cultural centre of Ireland, and has been known for its famous figures in art and literature such as George Bernard Shaw and Oscar Wilde. The capital of Ireland is rife with cultural festivals and celebrations and as a tourist, it’s probably high on your list.

The Book of Kells, written around the year 800AD, is kept in Trinity College Dublin. Its pages contain the Latin text of the four Gospels, and it’s one of the most beautiful manuscripts in the whole world. Dublin is also home to the Guinness Storehouse, the National Gallery of Ireland and St Patrick’s Cathedral, the largest cathedral in Ireland.
