Holidays in Ireland

Just a short hop across the Irish Sea, the Emerald Isle entrances visitors from around the world with its lush, unspoilt countryside and historic cities, its mystical Celtic charm and, of course, the famously warm welcome to be found in music-filled pubs across the country. First port of call for many is Dublin, the lively capital of the Republic of Ireland. Founded by the Vikings in the ninth century, this is a city with a long and colourful history, just waiting to be discovered. Learn about the nation’s past in the splendid National Museum, visit the impressive St Patrick’s Cathedral, spend time wandering through the bustling, bohemian Temple Bar neighbourhood, or relax in the more peaceful surroundings of Phoenix Park, one of the largest urban public gardens in Europe. And if you want to know more about the ‘little people,’ the National Leprechaun Museum is the place to go! Heading west, you’ll come upon the spectacular scenery of the famed Ring of Kerry and the rugged Cliffs of Moher, towering over the Atlantic coastline, while the geological wonder of the Giant’s Causeway – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and the fascinating Titanic Belfast Exhibition are among the many highlights of Northern Ireland.
