Each March, all eyes turn toward Ireland, albeit briefly, as Americans wear green, parade down Main Street, chow down on corned beef and cabbage and soda bread, and have also been known to toss back a Guinness or two.
IRELAND: AWESOME & AFFORDABLE
But the truth is, Ireland is a 24/7/365 travel destination with easy flights from the U.S., streamlined customs procedures, amazing food (think way beyond pub grub these days), affordable lodging, and the friendliest locals on the planet.
WE ASKED, YOU ANSWERED: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN IRELAND
With Budget Travelers' love of the Emerald Isle in mind, we asked our audience to share their picks for the most beautiful places in Ireland.

Enjoy!
