Make friends in Ireland!

13 Entries

It’s no secret that the Irish are a friendly bunch. Step into any pub whether it be in the big cities of Cork or Dublin, or the small towns of Tramore or Killarney and you’ll be sure to find yourself chin-wagging with a local in no time. Get chatting in Dublin’s Medieval Temple Bar district where you’ll find a bunch of cosy pubs and welcoming restaurants. During September coloured banners are strung out of the windows of every house and pub in sight when each county is out in full force supporting their hurling team for the championships – grab a Guinness and join in with the masses. Looking for more than friendship? Then get yourself to the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival where Willie Daly, Ireland’s only official matchmaker, will set you up with the guy or gal of your dreams. This is one hostel destination where you needn’t worry about making friends.
