At this time of year, Ireland and St. Patrick are top of mind, and it's a great time to start thinking about that Ireland vacation. And, when in Ireland, you can follow in the footsteps of St. Patrick on your journey around the island.
Top places in Ireland related to St. Patrick:
St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin - a must-visit when in Ireland's capital, this is one of two amazing cathedrals right in the heart of Dublin city.
Downpatrick, Co. Down- this is a lovely little town, and home to another St. Patrick's Cathedral. It is also the town he is buried in, and you can visit his grave, at the top of the hill, overlooking the beautiful Co. Down countryside. Also in Downpatrick, you can visit St. Patrick's Centre, a fascinating museum telling the story of our patron saint.

Croagh Patrick, Westport - this is one of Ireland's most famous mountains, and a must-see when on the west coast of Ireland. Located just minutes from Westport, Ireland's prettiest village, many locals and visitors climb this iconic mountain to enjoy amazing views over Clew Bay. On Reek Sunday (the last Sunday in July), an annual day of pilgrimage in Ireland, thousands climb Croagh Patrick, Ireland's holiest mountain, many in their bare feet!
Any of these visits can be included on a Royal Irish Tours driving holiday on the Emerald Isle.
