For a small island, Ireland is known across the world for its culture, people, and the ‘craic’ (fun not the other stuff). I believe being a local lad, and covering almost every inch of land in the country, I can give you the most authentic travel guide to Ireland available to the public. Note: Ireland has two capitals and two currencies. In the Republic of Ireland (Dublin etc.) the Euro (€) is used and in Northern Ireland (Belfast etc.) the British Pound (£) is used.
Typical hostel prices are between €10 – €20 EUR
Restaurant sit down meals would cost around €10 EUR and upwards
A pint of beer costs upwards of €4 EUR
