Ireland

What is Ireland known for? 

You’ll be welcomed into this warm country with open arms, cheeky local smiles and maybe the odd pint or two of Guinness. No matter where you head you’re sure to bump into some colourful local character!

One for storytellers, the Emerald Isle’s rugged coastlines and unrestrained beauty is enough to inspire anyone to turn creative and pen their first novel. While Ireland’s traditional Celtic influence will make it difficult for you to say goodbye.

Head to Ireland in July and August for a sunnier stay or for a cosy, wintery feel between November and February. And who could forget the country’s famous holiday, St Patrick’s Day in March? A cultural and religious celebration for the patron saint of Ireland, March 17 should be on your calendar for a truly Irish frolic.
