WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN IRELAND

1. Get your fill of historic castles and ancient sites.

King John’s Castle and Bunratty Castle & Folk Park


The mid-west region of Ireland
is home to some of the most notable castles on the isle. Get to County Clare, and begin your royal tour with King John’s Castle – a 13th-century wonder. Then venture on to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park for a blast back to the 15th-century past.

The Aran Islands


These three small islands are set just off of Galway Bay. They’re most famous for their gorgeous scenery, castle ruins and ancient monuments. Don suitable footwear, take the ferry over and have fun exploring!

2. Get your fill of modern cuisine and festivals.

Irish cuisine


Today, Ireland is blessed with many an edible treasure. Try a tasting tour of Dublin or go road-tripping along the highways and byways for artisanal producers and purveyors.

Galway International Arts Festival


Take part in this longstanding festival that brings together visual arts, dance, performance and literature. Like its counterpart in Edinburgh, there’s just so much to see and do here.

3. Get your fill of stunning landscapes.

Connemara National Park


Connemara National Park is known for its incredible flora and fauna. If you go, take a moment to stop and spot the Connemara ponies. Named for the area, these sweet creatures have been the backbone of farming and travel here for centuries.

The Giant’s Causeway


A UNESCO World Heritage Site, a protected national nature reserve and the fourth natural wonder of the United Kingdom, the Giant’s Causeway is certainly a sight to behold. You’ll find over 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns at the edge of the north coast, birthed up from the sea and lashed together by an ancient volcanic eruption.

Ireland

Ireland

Ireland is an island in north-western Europe which has been divided politically since 1920. Most of the island is made up of Ireland (the Republic of Ireland). The remainder is Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. An uncommon geological richness and the warming effect of the Atlantic produce an astonishing diversity of terrain on this lovely island, which is splashed throughout with lakes and primeval bogland. Ireland also adds further interest to the landscape through the sacred associations of so many of its physical features.
