A Travel Guide to Ireland’s Alternative Activities
Ireland is absolutely fantastic when it comes to tourism, and we’re all well aware of many of the amazing things that there is to do there. Whether you’re doing pub crawls or driving through the blissfully green countryside, there’s plenty to do and see – but there are many things you may not have considered doing while you’re there.
Casinos in Ireland are often attractive to travelers, because they typically follow slightly different rules to those found across the rest of the EU. If you’re a fan of all things casino without heading all the way out to Las Vegas or Atlantic City, the Irish casinos could offer the different perspective and setting for fun that you need.
If you’re heading to Ireland, the chances are that you’re going to its capital, Dublin. The Fitzwilliam Casino & Card Club is probably the favorite in the nation and is open from 6pm until 6am every single day. You’ll find live casino games like roulette, poker, punto banco and brag. There’s a large open-plan gaming hall and poker hall, and a super friendly atmosphere. It’s ideal for those on their travels because it’s right in Dublin’s bustling city centre, so you don’t need to go out of your way. Membership is also free for all, even short-term visitors.
This is a great place for beginners to get their foot in the door, because it’s so central and therefore always busy – packed with both regulars and curious newbies. To really get a feel for some of the games on offer, there are free spins at William Hill to give you the opportunity to try a variety of different games, as well as getting a feel for the rules and what you’re good at.
Movie & TV Tours
Stay in Ireland for even five minutes and you’ll soon agree that it’s gorgeous – which is probably why there are so many movies and TV shows shot there.
Probably the most famous – or at least the most culturally relevant in 2018 – is the Game of Thrones tour. Tours start from various locations across Ireland, including Derry and Dublin, and take you to many of the astounding film set locations that you’ll recognise from the screen.
You can choose between a coach tour and a walking one.
Not many people think of “Ireland” and “surfing” in the same section, but that needs to change.
Ireland’s rugged coastlines actually boast some of “the best waves in the world“, and you can choose to jump on your board in a real variety of different places.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to the sport or you’ve done it before, you can tackle the waves while taking in the stunning scenery as well.
There’s plenty to do in Ireland, whether wandering through the cities or driving around the coast or quaint little towns. But isn’t it more fun when you have something different to do when you get there?
