A visit to Ireland is an experience that you will never forget. Luminous greens dominate the country’s breathtaking landscapes, while magnificent sites and monuments abound throughout. Mild winters and warm summers define the climate of the Emerald Isle, which generally experiences a lack of temperature extremes.
There truly is something for everyone in Ireland, ranging from ancient monuments, vibrant and colourful towns, romantic castles, and spectacular gardens. Why not explore the magic of County Kerry, with its rolling green countryside, sandy beaches, spectacular golf courses and historical monuments? Make North Kerry your base and stay in a holiday cottage or a farmhouse with log fires, and explore this hidden treasure of Ireland's beautiful South West.
Alternatively, visit Dublin and the surrounding area, known as Dublin’s Doorstep. Stay in an apartment in the heart of the city or bag yourself a cottage on the stunning East Coast, with glorious views out to sea.
County Cork's picturesque scenery and ruins of ancient forts and castles, as well as the relatively mild climate, make this a great place for a relaxing and peaceful break. Rent a home in one of the many quaint villages and take advantage of the coastal walking and cycle paths.
This is a country steeped in history, yet also home to modern and cutting-edge cities. From the Blarney Stone - which is said to give the gift of eloquence to those who kiss it – to the 1,000 year-old early Christian churches to Dublin’s contemporary museums, there is a corner of Ireland that will appeal to every taste. And if all that sight-seeing makes you thirsty, it would be rude not to visit an Irish pub, enjoy a pint of Guinness with the locals and hear some of the many stories that Ireland has to tell.
