One of the tricky things that tourists have to face when traveling in Ireland is understanding Gaelic, the language native to the country. Of course people in Ireland speak English as well, but their own version of the English language can be a little confusing, with some terms and phrases meaning differently from what an American or an Englishman may be accustomed to. And so, here are some Gaelic terms that you as a person going to travel in Ireland must know. When you enter a shop and are greeted “Failte,” pronounced as fall-sha, by the attendant, the attendant is only bidding you welcome.

Here are several tips on saving in Ireland.  Over the years, Ireland has somehow gained a reputation among travelers to be “The Rip-Off Republic.” This means that if you want to spend on something when on your trip to Ireland, you have to be prepared to spend big. By now you know that Jim loves the Ten Best of any country.  Here they are for Ireland.  And of course there is Northern Ireland and here you can discover ten reasons to visit this part of the country and their own tourist board.

It is a land of blue mountains and forest parks, mazy lakes and windswept moors, white Atlantic sands, an inland sea. In fact, it’s a country that is just pretending to be small. Dozens of small towns are hidden away down among the green places of the countryside, and fishing villages string out along the shores. The towers and steeples of parish churches mark the high ground beyond trimmed hedgerows. The country’s turbulent past, which still resonates today, has also helped shape the landscape. Visit Belfast the capital of and the largest city in Northern Ireland and the second largest city in Ireland.

A self-drive vacation has many advantages. The key benefit is the independence to tour and travel on your own terms and schedule. With a self-drive vacation you can go where you wish, as you wish, at your own pace. This enables you complete freedom and independence to tour, sightsee and enjoy leisure time as you see it. You will in all probability start off in Dublin and branch out from there. Dublin isn’t just a city. It’s a county with spectacular mountains, woods, countryside, and coastline. So there’s even more for you to explore!

I have friends who say that Ireland is the most beautiful country in the world.  Of course they would say that.  They are Irish.  But this video does confirm some of their sentiments. You may want to “bone up” on a little vocabulary prior to your visit so turas sábháilte. (Bon Voyage!) jeb
