Final comments
You should go to visit: Galway, Dublin Cork, Coth, ZOO Float, Klifs of Moher, Belfast - this way u will see all the best in Ireland. Go surfing if u can do it. Always take umbrela with u and good waterproof shoes. Rent a car for traveling, Ireland has a bad comunication to travel and from midnight till six in the morning there are no busses and trains.
