Lucky You! Cruise Ireland
There are plenty of cruise options for those looking to explore the republic consisting of 26 of 32 counties comprising the island of Ireland. The Emerald Isle is full of history, beauty, passion, laughter, and one can always find a local willing to tell a tale.
Heading to Cork, to see where my ancestors were from was a highlight. Thanks to Azamara Club Cruises for the opportunity. Click here to read my post.
Heritage Travel: My Quest to Discover My History
Ireland’s capital city offers many activities for the cruise visitor. Your ship will dock along the River Liffey, close to the Samuel Beckett Bridge or nearby at Dublin Port’s Alexandra Quay. The city center is easy to explore on your own or via an organized tour. Don’t miss St. Stephen’s Green, a walk through the grounds of Trinity College, and a visit to a local pub.
