Stick a pin in a map of Ireland and there will be a reason to go in 2009. From the iconic Giant's Causeway in County Antrim to the unspoiled and breathtaking Burren landscape, there is something for every visitor to Ireland and 2009 is a year of cultural celebrations, new openings and anniversaries. In addition to annual events such as St Patrick's Day in March many cultural events are taking place throughout Ireland in 2009. Get involved in the festivities in Dublin and Sligo for the 70th anniversary of Yeats' death, welcome the sailing teams into the final leg of the Volvo Race in Galway in May, celebrate 250 years of the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, or witness the Gaelic Athletic Association kicking off its 125th anniversary celebrations at Croke Park. City slickers should head for Belfast, which has benefited from great investment over the past few years.
