Good question! Failte Ireland visitor number, TripAdvisor, Discover Ireland, our own opinion, the opinion of friends from all over the country.
We felt it was important every county was included. We also found it hard to narrow down what should go into to some counties. Like Dublin, a small space with loads of brilliant attractions packed in. We did our best. Hope you like it.
