Whatever you’re into, a holiday in Ireland is sure to be the trip of a lifetime.

Natural Wonders

Natural Wonders

A visit to Ireland will give your camera a real workout. From the rugged coast of the west, bashed by the Atlantic day and night, to the rolling hills of the midlands dotted with cattle and haystack,s to the mountains that ring the nation’s coastline and the ever changing light conditions, you’ll find it hard to resist snapping away at every place you visit. The only drawback is that the pictures will never truly capture the real-life beauty.

Mystical History


Ireland’s history stretches back for milllennia, with our oldest man-made structures outdating the Pyramids by more than just a few years. Before the modern, Viking-born towns and societies that shaped Ireland as we know it, the Celts had roamed the land for thousands of years, spreading their mystical beliefs, traditions, art, and way of life with them, leaving an intriguing legacy behind. Delving into Ireland’s Celtic origins gives a real sense of what Ireland is all about.

Active Adventures


If you’re more the adrenalin junkie type, we’ve got you covered on that front too. Hiking, mountain biking, surfing, skydiving and even bog swimming are all popular activities on the Emerald Isle for both visitors and natives. If you’d prefer something more sedate, however, there are plenty of opportunities for sailing, hill walking, fishing, or just some ‘normal’ swimming too! Just don’t forget to bring a decent pair of shoes and a rain jacket…

Cultural Marvels


Ireland is where many of the world’s greatest writers have called home, and our creative talents don’t stop there. We’ve also produced a wealth of musicians, actors and artists, resulting in a vibrant and eclectic cultural scene. You can easily spend weeks exploring the many art galleries, watching outstanding theatre, dancing to buskers on the streets or getting lost in a good book in the cosy corner of a pub or coffee shop.

Festival Fun


There is a festival in Ireland for almost every day of the year. Ranging from grand scale music festivals that the youth of the nation flocks to every summer to local community festivals, or even weird and wonderful events like Ted Fest (a festival entirely dedicated to Ireland’s favourite sitcom, Father Ted) or the Matchmaking festival in Lisdoonvarna, there’s something to suit everyone. And of course, there’s always the biggest and best of all, Saint Patrick’s Day!
