    If you only have one week, travel one or two regions only so you can make the most of your trip to Ireland. Make a list of your must see places first, and plan from there. If you are taking the spontaneous approach, seek out the local tourism office first when you arrive in an area. The locals also will give good regional advice and tips. Here are the highlights of each of the four provinces in Ireland to help you plan your Ireland vacation.

    Dublin and the East

    If you are travelling to and from Dublin airport for your Ireland vacation, then you may choose to spend at least a day at the start and end of the trip. Dublin offers history, culture, architecture, music and the city indulges all tastes and interests. Trace the history of the ages in Dublin from early Viking to modern Celtic Tiger years. Try a guided tour of the city if it is your first visit to ensure you see the highlights. Dublin is a good base for many day trips such as the Japanese Gardens, Newgrange Passage Tombs, The Hill of Tara, Glendalough and Wicklow Mountains.

    Rugged West of Ireland

    If you love wild untouched landscapes and ancient archaeological sites then head west during your Ireland vacation. Carved by the Atlantic Ocean the coastline is wild and awe inspiring. The Burren Region, Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands are geological wonders and are renowned worldwide. Visit Galway city of the tribes and capital of the West, before exploring the hills and lakes of Connemara. Then follow the literary trail of W.B. Yeats into Sligo and beyond.

    South

    The Southern regions are known for its fertile farmlands, beautiful beaches, gardens, and castles. The three peninsulas of the South West; Beara, Dingle and Iveragh are some of the most well known routes for visitors. Visit Cork, which is Irelands second largest city, before travelling to Cobh (Queenstown), which was the last port that the Titanic stopped in. The South East reveals its Viking and medieval past almost everywhere you look.

    Northern Counties

    From Dublin you can be in the vibrant city of Belfast in about two hours and from there begin exploring the Causeway Coast or follow in the footsteps of St. Patrick from Armagh town. Other highlights of the North include the Glens of Antrim, Bushmills distillery, Fermanagh Lakelands, and Derrys walled city. Cross the border once more into County Donegal and explore the rugged west coat with Mount Errigal in the background.

    We need to rest to relax our body and mind from stressful doings in life. One way in doing is to take vacations. It is an affective stress reliever to achieve a perfect work-life balance because if not we are destined to be doomed. Vacationing involves out-of-town activities and parties.

    Vacations offer countless benefits to all of us. The survey conducted by the State University of New York has found out that taking vacations can make your life longer. According to the researchers, the mortality risks of people who are vacationing annually are lessened by 20% compared to those who are not. Aside from making our lives longer, vacations also improve relationships. Families become closer and comfortable with one other if they are constantly on a vacation or if they bond most of the time. It is not only about family relations because romance can also be improved with it. Through vacationing, lovers will get lots of opportunities to spend time with each other. Vacations are also good for lovers who are currently on a bumpy relationship nowadays. Discuss with your lover what is needed to be discussed. In addition, relaxation can also improve cognitive alertness and ability. Breaks from a tireless work can also boost the productivity of a person. Not just only productivity but creativity as well. Some say that relaxation can make you reflect on the things that are not on your daily routine.

    Around us are several factors that pull us down when we need to relax. It can be deadlines, insufficient time, and monetary problems. Most of the time, mothers do not bring their babies or children during vacations because they can be problematic sometimes. If you are that kind of mother, then you are not doing the good one. As what has been stated above, vacations can empower family relations. Dont be upset if your baby cry because thats their only way to express to you that he/she is not feeling good. It might be cause of hunger or by sleepiness. You need to invest patience and love to your baby. Dont scold them if they cry. One very important factor in child rearing and baby sitting is the word comfortable. Dont you observe that if a baby is comfortable the way he dresses, eats, and sleeps then he will not cry. So if there will be no crying then you and your baby can have the most wonderful vacation of all time.

    A Mor Vacations membership promises to give you an opportunity to travel luxuriously to the best places on earth at unbelievably affordable rates. Mor Vacations is yet another travel club in this regard. However, is Mor Vacations as excellent as Primo Vacations? Which is better: Mor or Primo? To help you in making the comparison, we reviewed both the clubs, and below is the comparison of Mor Vacations versus Primo Vacations.

    A Primo Club lifetime membership would cost you almost $700. With this membership, you would be able to select any of the 83,000 vacation resorts and sites that are listed with the club and enjoy more than week long holidays at the selected luxury site at discounts as large as 80 percent. There are not going to be any black out dates, meaning that you would be able to book your holidays at any time of the year even if it is the peak holiday period. However, there will be hot weeks that the club would declare at certain times during the year. If you go for your vacation during these weeks, you would get a better discount than ordinary days.

    Though Mor Vacations promises everything that the Primo Club offers, the promises are just that, they are not kept. To begin with, a Mor Vacations Club membership that would offer you the same benefits as the $700 Primo Club Membership will cost you some hundred dollars. There are memberships at lesser prices as well but they would not have many benefits. The number of holiday destinations offered by Mor Vacations is also less than the 83,000 destinations offered by Primo Vacations.

    Additionally, though Mor would promise you no blackout days, there would often be times when you will not be able to reach the Club to book your vacations, especially during peak season. At Primo, during peak seasons, the Club would respond to you even though the discounts offered might be slightly lower.
