Dublin
Step into a city where Viking history lurks beneath the surface, where modern architecture stands next to ancient buildings and where literature is written into the fabric of the streets. This is Dublin — don’t miss the National Museum of Ireland or The Little Museum of Dublin. Explore the history of the dark brew at the Guinness Storehouse while enjoying a 360-degree view over Dublin from the rooftop Gravity Bar. Christ Church Cathedral has been a place of pilgrimage for more than 1,000 years and Trinity College in the heart of the city is home to the famed Book of Kells.

Belfast
Vibrant culture, gripping history and super-friendly locals are what Belfast is all about. No wonder Lonely Planet named Belfast and the Causeway Coast Best in Travel for 2018.  This is definitely a city you won’t want to leave! But before you do, travel back in time at Titanic Belfast and enjoy refreshments at the Crown Liquor Saloon , surely the world’s finest 19th-century bar. Whet your appetite at St. George’s Market, one of Ireland’s oldest covered markets showcasing all kinds of artisan foods, fresh seafood, fine Irish cheese and even local seaweed!

Cork
Cork City is a mix of quaint side streets, broad thoroughfares and artistic districts. Savor the sights and sounds of the English Market, which dates back to 1788, enjoy lunch at the Farmgate Café and browse the food stalls but definitely save some time to branch out to Ireland’s Alcatraz, Spike Island, and the nearby fishing/sailing town of Kinsale, home to a number of renowned restaurants.

Galway
Galway has a bohemian flavor typical of the west of Ireland psyche: laid-back, relaxed and ready to party. In 2020, the city will celebrate its year as European Capital of Culture, with a calendar of events that reflects the richness and diversity of this creative urban hot spot on Ireland’s majestic Wild Atlantic Way.  Walk around this compact city and feel the creative vibes — enjoy traditional music in many pubs that host traditional Irish sessions nightly.  Dine at a Michelin-star restaurant and sample seafood served fresh from the nearby ocean at a variety of fine-dining spots.

Waterford
This city on the southeast cost feels more like a small town than a big city. Founded by the Vikings, the city boasts a fascinating history that can be uncovered within the Viking Triangle that encompasses the Medieval Museum, Bishop’s Palace and Reginald’s Tower. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the House of Waterford Crystal, taste a blaa (bread roll) at the Granary Café and walk along the historic quays of the city.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
