Attractions from Ireland

Cork City prison (Cork)
In spite of a majestic appearance, the conditions in the 19th century prisoners in Cork City Prison were not very royal. This is the impression you will get visiting Cork's notorious prison, where the daily life of prisoners and guards has been reconstructed with the help of wax figures and sound effects.
Saint Finbars Cathedral (Cork)
The three towered church is one of the most beautiful and interesting churches in Cork County. It was finished in 1870 and was built in honour of Saint Fin Barre, the founder and patron saint of Cork City.
The English Market (Cork)
This roofed market is situated on the main street, Grand Parade, and here you can get a large selection of meat, poultry, cheese, vegetables, bread and fresh herbs. If you are there early after opening, you will see the chefs of the finest restaurants of Cork shopping at the market for the daily menu.
The Rock The Slieve League (Donegal)
This is the name of the greatest ocean rock in Europe, which is situated by the west coast of Donegal. The rock rises 598 metres above sea level and is one of the most spectacular sights in Ireland. If you want to set out on a long hike in the rocky area it is recommended that you consult a guide.
The town Lough Derg (Donegal)
The lake Lough Derg is situated about 20 kilometres east of Donegal town. Every summer several thousands of catholic pilgrims come to Lough Derg. They come to do penance on Station Island, which is situated in Lough Derg. Saint Patrick visited the island in the year 445, and since then pilgrims have called this place Saint Patrick's purgatory.
Kilmainham Gaol Prison (Dublin)
When you visit this former prison, you will experience the chilling insight into how it must have been being locked up in one of these repulsive punishment bastions. The prison was used until 1924 and today it is a well-visited tourist attraction for those who wish to get an insight into modern Irish history.
Phoenix Park (Dublin)
This oasis is Europe's and Dublin's largest fenced city park. On about 700 hectares you will among other things find the residence of the president (Áras an Uachtaráin), the American ambassador residence, Dublin's zoological garden and Ashtown Castle.
The Dublin Castle (Dublin)
Dublin Castle represents the heart of Dublin. Actually, the city got it's name from the black pond of the castle, Dubh Linn, which is still in the garden of the castle. The castle worked as the centre of power of the British for 700 years and has functioned as both prison, fortress and residence for the English.
Galway City Museum (Galway)
The museum is a folk museum showing the history of the city and of the daily life all the way back to the Middle Ages.
The city wall The Spanish Arch (Galway)
The gate, neighbour to the Galway City Museum, is actually the remains of an extension of the city wall from 1584. Some people believe that the name of the building, The Spanish Arch, is misleading, as there is no evidence that there were any Spanish people in Galway when the gate was built.
