The best time to visit Ireland, is in the summer, but it also cater for all year round, pleasures, winter and spring would be a favourite of mine, Autumn is equally gifted with many interesting activities, I love spring simply because of my fondness with the beautiful lush countryside alive with natures timeless invention.

If however, you are into music and festivals, then Celebration of St Patrick day on the 17th march is one of the major highlights in Dublin the capital, with parades and various bands making a name for themselves, the celebration goes on for the best part of a week, and there are plenty of Guinness and other spirits and beers to go around.

There is more excitement on the west coast; when Galway Oyster festival takes place in September, 27th and it goes on for three days. Ireland is not only an attractive beauty spot, it is also a place of excitement and laughter, with tempting prospect of enjoyment engulfing each seasons of the year.

The summer season is like one long year of entertainment, with festivals moving from the capitol Dublin to be held in various other provinces and counties, Ireland is traditionally divided into the four provinces. Leinster, Munster, Connacht and Ulster. Most of Ulster is now part of Northern Ireland. So it's important to priorities the places where you would like to visit.

The Four Provinces flag of Ireland is created from the four flags of each province Ulster, Munster, Connacht and Leinster. The flag is a representation of all counties in Ireland and were in use before the partition of the six counties of newly formed Ulster (Northern Ireland).

For administrative purposes, the Republic of Ireland is divided into 26 counties. They are the counties of Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wexford, and Wicklow, in Leinster Province; Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary, and Waterford, in Munster Province; Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon, and Sligo, in Connacht Province; and Cavan, Donegal, and Monaghan, in Ulster Province. Each county is governed by at least one county council.

Two counties are divided into subsections administered by separate county councils, giving the country a total of 29 county councils. Tipperary County has two councils, North and South Tipperary. Dublin County has three councils, Dublin-Belgard, Dn Laoghaire-Rathdown, and Dublin-Fingal.

The capital and largest city is Dublin with a population of 595,781. Dublin is the commercial and industrial center of Ireland and the country's principal port Cork is the second largest city and a major port, with a population of 123,162. Other major cities and towns include. Limerick. (54,023), Galway (65,832), and Waterford (44,694). Wexford is even smaller than Waterford. The town that I love most would be Gorey. Small and bottleneck if you are caught in rush hour time.

Discover historic Ireland, with traditional culture and heritage displayed in the beautiful wonder of nature; explore the mythical image of different cities and towns.
