Tara recommends
Food and drink: Seafood is amazing in Ireland. The Galway Oyster and Seafood festival is well worth a visit. Irish lamb, traditional bread, cheese and anything dairy are also a must. 
Learning tips: Music can be a fun way of learning a new language. Listen to songs whilst reading the lyrics or singing along. This is how I improved my Danish pronunciation. Reading a book and discussing it with a friend is also enjoyable and productive.
Places to visit: Connemara, in the west of Ireland. Oscar Wilde referred to it as “A Savage Beauty”
Literature: Poetry, plays and crime novels. What she’d recommend ; The boy in the striped pyjamas ( John Boyne), The Field ( John B Keane), The Lost Symbol ( Dan Brown), The poetry of William Butler Yeats.
