    Atlantic coast quite nice

    Dublin gets boring after 24h

    Weather politely described as oceanic (it rains all the time)

    Belfast is another 24h at most place

    Giant’s Causeway worth seeing but not worth going to see

    They’ve a very weird relationship with the Irish language, no one actually speaks it except for sone farmers and pensioners but it’s central to their identity

    Pub culture good. Lots of alcoholics that aren’t talked about

      Largely agree excep Belfast is a kip.

      what are some good places to go in Cork?

      Virtually anything but the city (except maybe the market)

      Ireland

      - Exceedingly beautiful country (West Coast / Wild Atlantic Way) when the sun is out
      - Weather can me wet, windy and awful for as long as it needs to be
      - People are often very friendly, welcoming and open for a chat
      - Transport is alright, typically busses between major cities
      - Lots of rural country areas which can be cool to see, but often do not offer much beyond the visual aspects

      Negatives

      - Its becoming an expensive tourist trap for rich Americans, literally every Tourist activity is geared towards tugging on the heartstrings of yanks
      - Lack of trains in majority of country is criminal
      - Dublin is a shithole, and becoming a lawless hellhole. Guards are fucking useless.
      - Despite being a wealthy western country, do not expect a lot of the creature comforts youll find elsewhere in England, or mainland Europe. Some bars or restaurants will be cash only, opening/closing times can be limited, lots of places closed on Sundays until 1pm due to religious nonsense

      Beyond that, enjoy it.
      The sights are incredible. Dont let the bad weather put you off on the days it does rain.
      If you are American, and have family who emigrated, dont be afriad to bring it up in a bar if your family was from the area. People thing its cliched but people often like to hear about families who safely made it to the USA and made a better life for themselves

      >becoming expensive tourist trap
      Always was (at least in Dublin).
      >If you are American, and have family who emigrated, dont be afriad to bring it up
      Caution on this: you will inevitably hear grandstanding on US politics (this is unironically the 51st state now) and about how bad things are over there (usually on guns or how crazy people are).

      Went twice this year. Not a bad place. Maybe somewhat boring (especially if you don't drink). Train routes are the most retarded things I've ever seen. It's also really fucking expensive. Might as well spend a little more and go to Iceland, or spend slightly less and go to Scotland.

      Belfast > Dublin
      Giant's Causeway incredibly underwhelmbing

      [...]
      Also to add on that, spend as much time at the coast as you can. Grab a bus to one of the small sea towns like Ballycotton if you want amazing sights and

      Dingle Peninsula is kino

      Extremely beautiful naturescapes, like a fairy tale or fantasy world come to life; conversely, also some of the ugliest women I've ever seen.

      Women still better looking than the British or Scottish

      I'm thinking of going there for up to a week during Spring. Is it a good idea to hire a car as opposed to public transport? Anyone who has been there, where would you recommend going if you were there for a week?

      Definitely rent a car for a few days. Every day is overkill. Maybe take a train to Cork or Galway and rent a car and go from there.

      Can any irish here say if you'll ever have trains?

      They have trains. They just are basically all straight lines and not connected at the end of the line. It's the most retarded rail system I've ever seen in the world. Apparently in the early 1900's their train system made sense and had lines all over but their potato brains fucked it up for future generations in the mid 1900s

      Victorian Market for sure. I was there last month and regret not going. They have really good food.
      St. Luke's Church for music.
      Elizabeth Fort at the Gaol are cool old architectural sights.

      You can access big towns and cities via public transport easily. The most scenic bits of Ireland are all on the west coast and you probably need a car unless you want to spend 20% of your holiday waiting for buses. Driving on the left is fine, you get used to it in seconds. I liked the cliffs of moher and the burren generally as I like rocks

    Thinking of renting a motorcycle for 2 weeks here. What's the chances I'll get rained out? The goal world probably be to book hotels in bigger c*ties so at least if it rains I can hang out at the pub. Seems you could see most of the country this way.

      Go in April/May and that"s your best bet, there's usually a nice patch then and a random one again in July/August. Apart from that most of the time it's not that bad of rain, mainly just a light or normal downpour that should be fine for riding.
