Traveling to Ireland can never be complete without a visit to Dublin, the capital and most densely populated city of Ireland. Dublin vouches of a great nightlife and has the most youthful crowd of all the cities. Almost 50% of its population comprises of youngsters who are less than 25 years in age. 

It has many beautiful places that can be visited, which are also of great historical significance. My personal favorites when it comes to paying a visit are: the Dublin Castle, the Guinness Storehouse, Old Jameson Distillery, Dublinia and the house of the Dublin Zoo - The Phoenix Park.

Skellig Michael

The Skellig Rocks, Little Skellig and Skellig Michael (Great Skellig), are towering sea crags rising from the Atlantic Ocean. These are located about 12 kilometres west of the Ivereagh Peninsula which is in County Kerry. 
Skellig Michael is situated at the western edge of Europe. A small group of ascetic monks chose it as their selected destination in a pursuit towards the union with god. This place was their best choice as it was remote and inaccessible and took them away from the fangs of civilization. Later on between sixth and eighth centuries, they formed a monastery on these rocks. It was one of the most dramatic depiction of the Christian Monasticism.
Many seabirds also find this place fascinating and of interest when it comes to breeding. A lot of species are found to breed on these rocks. What makes this place splendid is the number of species of birds and the scenic serenity of the solitude one feels at this place. The peaceful surroundings mixed with the sounds of the birds make this place an amazing site to be visited.

It is a collection of about 40,000 basalt columns, that stick out of the sea. These rocks have inspired many legends of giants who strode to over the sea towards Scotland.
