List of things to do and see while in Ireland. What are the most popular attractions in Ireland? This list ranks the best tourist attractions in Ireland. With lush landscapes and spectacular scenery, the European island nation is one of Europe's top travel destinations. From castles to cliffs, the sea and the countryside, there are plenty of great destinations in Ireland. 

Dublin is the most-visited city in Ireland, with attractions like the Dublin Castle and the Guinness Storehouse drawing in most of the country's visitors each year. Though the region is rooted in its rich history, the Spire of Dublin brings a taste of modern architecture to the region. Other top cities to visit in Ireland include Belfast, the largest city in Northern Ireland, and Cork, a city that sits on the River Lee. Cork Harbor is one of the world's largest natural harbors. Still, Ireland is mostly known for its Celtic past with Neolithic artifacts surrounding the region. 

Ireland experiences mild climates with frequent rainfall, so it's best to prepare for drizzly and overcast days while exploring the popular attractions in Northern Island.
