Vacationing in Ireland

A small country with a big heart

Ireland is bordered by the North Atlantic Ocean to the West while to the East the Irish Sea divides it from the United Kingdom. Modern Ireland is divided into seven regions from the natural beauty of Northwest and Lakeland Ireland to the popular Ring of Kerry and Blarney Castle in Southwest Ireland.

Arriving in Ireland

Ireland has one of the EU's smallest populations and with nearly a third of it living in Dublin the rest of the country is sparsely populated making it perfect for tranquil breaks in your vacation rental. Despite its small population Ireland has four international airports, Dublin, Shannon, Cork and Knock although most visitors arrive through Dublin.

Good roads for great exploring

One legacy of Ireland's Celtic Tiger years of financial growth is the excellent network of roads that criss-cross the country. Ten motorways spread out from Dublin supported by high-quality dual carriageways and minor roads that meander through scenic countryside and along the coast.

City life in Ireland

Choose a vacation home in the capital Dublin and start your Irish visit here before picking up a rental car and exploring further. Dublin has fascinating museums, pretty parks and an eclectic mix of architecture to explore as well as pubs offering lively evenings of Irish dance and music accompanied by hearty food and, of course, a pint of the black stuff - Guinness.

The Irish outdoors

Just a few minutes drive from Dublin and you're in the dramatic scenery of the peat moors and peaks of the Wicklow Mountains. Then ride the rapids in a kayak on the River Laune or forage for edible seaweed in County Cork. County Mayo has opened disused railway lines as cycling tracks while deep sea fishing trips head out into Galway Bay.

Family fun on the beaches of Ireland

Ireland has some great beaches for a traditional family day out. Dog's Bay in County Galway is a crescent of silky white sand while some consider Inchydoney Beach in County Cork the country's best. With its crystal clear waters and golden sands, it could almost be tropical.

Top 5 things to do in Ireland

1. The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin

Who would have thought the history of Guinness could be so fascinating? The Guinness Storehouse provides seven floors of fascination, including a trip down advertising memory lane and a free pint of the black stuff at the end.

2. Trinity College

Visit Ireland's oldest university Trinity College Dublin and be sure to marvel at the illuminated Book of Kells.

3. Vertigo-inducing Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher in County Clare are Ireland's most visited natural attraction. That's no surprise when you see these wild and rugged cliffs.

4. Glendalough, County Wicklow

So much of the Wicklow Mountains is magical and mysterious but no area more so than the atmospheric ruins of Glendalough Monastery.

5. The Ring of Kerry

Everyone should make time to drive the Ring of Kerry. This circular route takes in jaw-dropping ocean views, mountain peaks, and quaint villages where time has stood still.

Unsurprisingly, with the famous breweries of Guinness and Harp Lager in the country, the Irish get through an average of 131 liters of beer each year. This is the second highest rate of beer consumption in the world, after the Czech Republic.

Useful Information

The soft Irish rain

If there's one thing you can be sure of in Ireland, it's that it will rain during your stay. In fact, it's not unusual to experience four seasons in any one day. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though as it accounts for the country's lush green countryside.

Dublin Writer's Week

If there's one annual event you should try and catch in Ireland, it's Dublin Writer's Week held every May. The world's best writers gather to enthrall audiences at events across the city, following on in the footsteps of Dubliner James Joyce.
