Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. Dublin is in the province of Leinster on Ireland’s east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Similar to much of the rest of northwestern Europe, Dublin experiences a maritime climate with cool summers, mild winters, and a lack of temperature extremes. The city experiences long summer days and short winter days. Strong Atlantic winds are most common in autumn.

Dublin has many landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years. One of the oldest is Dublin Castle, which was first founded in 1204. One of Dublin’s newest monuments is the Spire of Dublin, or officially titled “Monument of Light”. It is a 121.2-metre (398 ft) conical spire made of stainless steel and is located on O’Connell Street. Many people visit Trinity College, Dublin to see the Book of Kells in the library there. The Book of Kells is an illustrated manuscript created by Irish monks circa. 800 AD. The Ha’penny Bridge; an old iron footbridge over the River Liffey is one of the most photographed sights in Dublin and is considered to be one of Dublin’s most iconic landmarks. Dublin has more green spaces per square kilometre than any other European capital city, with 97% of city residents living within 300 metres of a park area. Dublin has a vibrant nightlife and is reputedly one of Europe’s most youthful cities, with an estimate of 50% of citizens being younger than 25.

Galway is a city in the West of Ireland in the province of Connacht. It is the fourth most populous urban area in the Republic of Ireland. Galway has a year-round mild, moist, temperate and changeable climate, due to the prevailing winds of the North Atlantic Current. Due to the city’s northerly location and its longitude, Galway has long summer days.

Galway is known as Ireland’s Cultural Heart and is renowned for its vibrant lifestyle and numerous festivals, celebrations and events. Every November, Galway hosts the Tulca Festival of Visual Arts as well as numerous festivals. 2008 poll ranked Galway as the 14th best tourist destination in Europe and 2nd in Ireland (behind Dingle). It was ranked ahead of all European capitals except Edinburgh, and many traditional tourist destinations (such as Venice). Galway has a vibrant and varied musical scene. As in most Irish cities traditional music is popular and is kept alive in pubs and by street performers. The Galway Arts Festival (Féile Ealaíon na Gaillimhe) takes place in July. It was first held in 1978 and since then has grown into one of the biggest arts festivals in Ireland. Many sporting, music, arts and other events take place in the city.

Cork is a city in Ireland, located in the South-West Region, in the province of Munster. It is the second largest city in the state. In 2005, the city was selected as the European Capital of Culture.

The city is built on the River Lee which splits into two channels at the western end of the city; the city centre is divided by these channels. They reconverge at the eastern end where the quays and docks along the river banks lead outwards towards Lough Mahon and Cork Harbour, one of the world’s largest natural harbours. The climate of Cork, like the rest of Ireland, is mild and changeable with abundant rainfall and a lack of temperature extremes. The low altitude of the city, and moderating influences of the harbour, mean that lying snow very rarely occurs in the city itself. Cork is also one of Ireland’s sunniest cities. Cork is an important educational centre in Ireland – There are over 30,000 third level students in the city including 1,200 PhD students.
