A website well worth checking out for what to see and do when you arrive in Ireland is the recently revamped website www.heritageisland.com
This website is an invaluable tool for anyone planning a visit to Ireland, and profiles 87 premier visitor attractions and heritage towns around the island of Ireland. It provides useful information such as opening hours, dates, admission rates, languages available, on-site facilities, accessibility, etc., and also includes many stunning images and videos of each location.
There is also a section highlighting suggested touring routes throughout the island, which should be of great use to you in helping you get the most from your stay.
Many visitor attractions and heritage towns also organise festivals and events throughout the year, so it is worthwhile visiting the Events section of this website to see if there is anything taking place that might be worth taking a detour for: http://www.heritageisland.com/events/
. Of course, these events are also a great place for getting to meet the locals.
Heritage Island also produces a comprehensive touring guide book and discount pass, providing considerable savings at most attractions featured in the guide and on the website, including many 2 for 1s, and % discounts off. This is available online for €8.45 including postage to anywhere in the world at: http://www.heritageisland.com/buy-your-ireland-touring-guide-2016-here/
I hope you have a wonderful and memorable trip to Ireland!
