Visitors can drive in Ireland if they are between the ages of 25 and 75.

Most road signs are in both English and Irish, but there are different traffic policies in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.Places to visit
For those that bend over backward and kiss it, the Blarney Stone, set upon Blarney Castle just 8km's from Cork City, is said to endow them with the gift of gab. Tourists can also live like a king for a day at 700-year-old converted castle hotels, like Ashford Castle, set against a remarkable backdrop. Otherwise, tourists should just raise a glass of Guinness at one of several food and beverage festivals held in Galway and Dungarvan.
