Ireland through my eyes is a short story of my expierances travelling all around Ireland. Many people know that Ireland is called the emerald isle because of its green land. The people are among the most friendly in all the world.
Born in Ireland in the 1970's and growing up on the streets of Belfast my childhood was a wash with the terrior and violance that was on offer living on the falls road in Belfast. Thankfully now as i am older and hopefully wiser things have changed for me, but more important the north of Ireland has also changed. Around the streets of Northern Ireland has a new and refreshing change. Gone are the riots etc and emerging from what was once ashes is great citys new buildings and a new age look. We say Ireland is buzzing and now in 2011 its the place to be. Being in the cities of Ireland is the hub, but if you travel around all of the coast line of Ireland you will instantly fall for its beaches, rock formations and the quiet that is felt from the country side. Eating, drinking and staying in one of Irelands many Bed and Breakfasts is a life time memory. For anyone who choses to visit ireland they can make it as cheap as they want it to be. There is alot of accommadation on offer from cheap hotels to the best little guest houses, also one of my favorite things is to hire a car the longer the better. I would recommend driving around the coastline and getting lost, yes lost this way you will see towns and villages that are not on the beaten track. All of the little town's have alot to offer like if you land in a small village with only one pub and a small shop/petrol station you know the ones with only one petrol pump. Some of my best memories of Ireland have came from doing this kind of touring. As we all know the people of Ireland are always happy no matter what life throws at them and any and all strangers will be greeted with a smile and a tall tail. If your lucky enough to be in any small pub any night of the week you could witness the great music and banter, trust me this is truly the best Ireland has to offer. There is no fancy speakers or sound systems just the most friendliest of people and some instruments, and you know that you are in for a night to remember. The beauty of Ireland is what you make of it, but one thing is for sure you will always come back.
