Renowned for its dramatic landscapes, literary genius, rich history steeped in lore, and fantastic food and drink, Ireland may be small but it’s packed full of character. A luxury holiday here promises sublime natural beauty, a little Celtic magic and one of the warmest welcomes you’ll ever receive.
Ireland’s landscapes boast rolling emerald fields, ancient ruins and rugged mountains. From the windswept Cliffs of Moher to the monastic relics of the historic east, the incredible Giant’s Causeway to the sweeping sandy bays, you certainly won’t be short of photo opportunities.
Ireland’s rich history shines throughout the country. Every landscape and monument has a story of legend attached, from ancient warriors and giants’ battles to Leprechauns and dramatic lovers’ tales. This is a country where fiction blends into fact and myths spring into life.
The cobbled streets of Dublin are buzzing with history and culture. This vibrant, cosmopolitan city is host to medieval castles, historic cathedrals, designer boutiques, galleries, museums, theatres, and some of Ireland’s finest hotels such as The Merrion. Further afield, Lough Eske Castle just outside Donegal Town, and 800-year-old Ashford Castle in County Mayo will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
Ireland’s lyrical charm can be experienced throughout the activities on offer. Visit a traditional pub, listen to live Irish music and sample a fine drop of Guinness. Tour the famous whiskey distilleries. Spend a day at the races. Play a round on a championship golf course. Hike through sublime countryside, or spend the day fishing along the waterways.
