Travel to Ireland

Through its fascinating history and incredible culture, Ireland has become a popular destination for travellers all around the globe.

 

Known as the Emerald Isle, its dramatic green landscapes and rugged coastlines make it a wonderful destination to road trip and feel like you’re on another planet.

 

Ireland’s cities and towns are charming and jammed with good ‘ol Irish pubs - it is the birthplace of Guinness after all! The Irish know how to have the craic (also known as a good time) and are some of the warmest people around.

 

Even if you are travelling solo, you’ll never feel alone in this friendly country! The big picturesque city of Dublin always has something happening and is where you can visit the Guinness Brewery and the famous Temple Bar. It's also not too far from extraordinary walking tracks along the coast or in the mountains.

 

Some highlights of Ireland include Phoenix Park, Dublin Castle, Rock of Cashel, and the narrow cobblestone-laned town of Kinsale.

 

Whether exploring the outdoors or roaming the towns, Ireland will bring out your liveliest side as the Irish craic culture is infectious. It’s impossible not to have a good time!

Our trips to Ireland


Culture

Irish culture is as distinctive and famous as any others around the world, and for good reason. Based on a proud history of music, religion, travel, art, folklore and sport; the Irish people are all singing, all dancing.

 

Facing all problems with a smile on their face and a song in their heart. They are also fiercely proud and patriotic, which is the reason why 50-80 million people worldwide claim Irish heritage, despite only 4.9 million people living in Ireland. 


Best time to visit

Ireland is beautiful year-round, but the best time to visit would be during their Summer (June-August). The sun is out and you can expect lovely temperatures ranging from 15-20°C.

 

During Summer is when the country comes out to bloom too! The greenery that Ireland is famous for is out in force.
