Some facts about Ireland
It feels like the grass is greener and the pubs are warmer in Ireland. No surprise given that Ireland is home to what's thought to be the oldest pub in the world. Sean's Bar in Athlone has been pouring pints since 900 AD – that's more than 1,000 years of pour-perfecting magic. Think of all that Guinness.
Along with absolutely stunning countryside, the country is dotted with ancient castles, each with its own tale to tell – from haunted halls to epic battles. So, whether you're sipping a pint in a cosy pub, gazing at cliffs that have stood for eons, or wandering through a castle that has seen centuries unfold, Ireland is a place where history, mystery and humour meet.
Culture and etiquette
According to the last census in 2022, about 69% of the Irish population is Roman Catholic.
Do you need tip in Ireland? Similar to the UK, tipping in Ireland is at your discretion and while not required, it's always appreciated. Just check that a service charge hasn't been added to the bill first.
