TripAdvisor reveals the 10 most popular experiences in Ireland

Sure, St. Patrick's Day is fun and all -- but it doesn't even compare to the natural beauty, culture and history that makes up majestic Ireland.

This Saturday, you're most likely going to spend the day drinking beer and eating green-colored foods. But in our minds, we have to actually step foot in Ireland to experience all that the country has to offer.

The country's capital of Dublin boasts a plethora of experiences, from the city's hop-on, hop-off tour, where you can visit Trinity college to Dublin castle, the beautiful Croke park and St. Patrick's Cathedral. The city is also known for one of the most popular tourist destinations, the Guinness Storehouse.
