Castle Stays On The Emerald Isle

If you have never visited Ireland before, you are absolutely missing out. This is one place that everyone should visit at least once, and it is the kind of nation which you will find to be full of a fascinating array of experiences and people. If you do decide to take a trip to Ireland, there are a lot of ways to see it. One of the better ways, however, has to be to take a tour. In fact, there are so many tours of many parts of Ireland that you might find going solo is much more unusual, and you might even feel left out. Of all the tours you can find for Ireland, one which looks particularly amazing is that which takes you through a number of the country’s oldest and most beautiful castles, many of which you are even able to stay in for the night. A lot of these tours have 7- or 10-day options, and you should be able to get a really good sense of the country as a whole in this time. You will be able to go for long walks in the stunning countryside, and meet plenty of locals along the way. What’s more, because of the nature of the tour, you don’t have to worry about the transport between places, meaning you can just sit back and enjoy the rolling country unfold before your eyes. This is definitely an experience you should consider if you are keen to see Ireland at some point in your life – or if you want to return for a closer look.

Alternative London

If you go to London, it won’t take you long to see that much of its tourism consists of tours of various kinds. While this is true in most large cities, you will be amazed at just how many there are in London, and it will likely blow you away to try and decide between them all. However, if you are keen to see plenty of the city and do something a little different in the process, then you might want to consider one of the many alternative London tours that are always available. One in particular is notable for taking you through the creative heart of the East End, one of the more up and coming and trendier parts of the city these days. These tours have a particular strong focus on street art, of which there is plenty, including some famous genuine Banksys. Many of the guides are artists themselves, so they know what they are talking about, and you might find it is even more fascinating than many of the standard ghost walks and Jack the Ripper tours you can also bump into.
