We visited Ireland back in 2006 & i can still picture it in my head, but unfortunately we have no photos. We stayed in Dublin, where there is a giant needle, to give you a reference point/location. I also remember there were many gift shops and our visit to the Guinness museum was brilliant, reaching the top where there is a bar, with 360 degree views of Dublin. With flights from Manchester only 45 minutes, it's a great place to visit for a long weekend, with plenty to see & do.
We will revisit Ireland in the future and hope to visit more places next time.
