Ireland Holidays

Famed for its legendary hospitality and beautiful scenery, charming towns, spectacular geological coastlines, magic, mythology and ancient history, the Emerald Isle has much to offer and plenty to see and do. Easy to reach from mainland UK, Ireland is an ideal destination both for a short break or family holiday but also for a longer, more leisurely, journey. For an island of such natural beauty, it is unsurprising that Ireland offers excellent walking, both short trails and more challenging daylong treks, a range of other outdoor activities such as kayaking and mountain biking, fabulous birdwatching, especially seabirds, and grand national parks renowned for their flora and fauna. Likewise, Ireland has an equally distinct culture. From pubs and taverns to charming cafes and fine dining restaurants, this is a destination where good food and drink is easy to find. Ireland is also blessed with a number of prestigious cultural sites, from castles and stately homes to Neolithic archaeological remains and ancient monasteries making it a year-round destination.

Places to visit in Ireland

Ireland, with its bucolic landscapes, striking coastline and proud history, has much to offer and plenty to discover. Whether you wish to discover deserted beaches, grand castles or stately homes, hike spectacular trails or towering coastal cliffs, explore isolated islands, visit legendary sites, experience true Irish hospitality in charming provincial towns and villages or soak up the vibrant atmosphere of cosmopolitan Dublin and Belfast, the options are almost endless. Discover the rugged Ring of Kerry, little-visited Beara Peninsula, medieval town of Kilkenny and quintessentially Irish, Wicklow Mountains National Park. Drive the spectacular Atlantic Way in the west, taking time to visit Connemara National Park, the wildflowers of Burren National Park, the towering Cliffs of Moher, the isolated Aran Islands and Clare Island as well as the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. The north of Ireland is famous the world over for its natural beauty from the wild Mourne Mountains and Rathlin Island, a renowned bird sanctuary, to the stunning Causeway Coast and iconic basalt rock formations of the Giant’s Causeway.

When to Visit ireland

Whilst Irish weather is changeable and it is common to experience all four seasons in one day, the year-round mild climate ensures Ireland is a year-round destination. Although the spring months are relatively cool, with an average temperate of 8-12°C, it is a beautiful time to visit with wildflowers in bloom and the countryside alive with birdsong. Summer welcomes increased temperatures with the average between 16-20°C and the least amount of rainfall with July and August the warmest months where there are long days with up to 18 hours of daylight. Autumn is a pleasant time to visit Ireland, temperatures are mild and the autumnal colours spectacular. The winter months herald lower temperatures, sometimes below freezing, but snow is rare.
