Dublin City

Ireland's vibrant capital is the gateway to almost every Ireland tour. But Dublin is more than a stepping stone to Ireland's regions and your tour will give you time to explore the city for yourself.

Ireland has more than its fair share of outstanding archeological sites, but the Rock of Cashel is arguably the most impressive. The rock itself is vast and imposing - an unmissable photo opportunity!

Dublin The Gateway to Ireland

Dublin Travel Guide

Ireland's proud and vibrant capital is also the gateway to almost every Ireland vacation: most transatlantic and European flights will land at Dublin Airport, and most Ireland tours will allow for a Dublin hotel-stay on your first night in Ireland. But Dublin is far more than just a stepping stone to Ireland's regional attractions: there is a great deal to see in the capital, and your travel plans should allow at least a day or two to take it all in.

About Dublin
Lighthouse in Hook Head

The East Wicklow, Bray, Arklow

East Ireland Travel Guide

We Irish love our horses, and nowhere is this better expressed than in the East, where stunning landscapes, forged by ancient glacial shifts, provide the most fitting backdrop for some of the world's finest thoroughbreds and a region which is proud to call itself the home of Irish horse racing. Wicklow and Ireland's east coast also offer perhaps the most vivid sense of Ireland's history, ancient and modern, from the archaeological relics of Ireland's earliest monastic sites, to the stately homes of the Anglo-Irish gentry.

About The East
The Cliffs of Moher

Galway & The West City of the Tribes

West Ireland Travel Guide

Pack your walking boots, your camera and sense of good fun as you head west for Galway and County Clare . Galway offers plenty of diversions and will easily take up a full day of your vacation, but be sure to allow time to enjoy the world-famous folk sessions which pervade the pubs of County Clare. If you play, bring and instrument; if you don't, buy the musicians a Guinness and belt out the high notes as you recognise the familiar refrain of countless Irish folk songs. There's no better way to spend a night out in Ireland.

About West Ireland
Kilkenny Castle by the riverside

The South East Kilkenny, Wexford, Waterford

South-East Ireland Travel Guide

Ireland's warmest and driest region is also one of its most popular vacation destinations. Visitors to Kilkenny and the South East enjoy the quaint and picturesque seaside towns and fishing villages which typify this corner of the Emerald Isle. As with Wicklow to the north, Ireland's ancient history is strongly felt here, and the ruins of castles and abbeys are likely to feature on most local tour itineraries.

Cork & Kerry Ireland's South West

Cork & Kerry Travel Guide

Rugged, rustic and wild, Ireland's South West perhaps best matches what first-time visitors expect Ireland to look like. There is plenty to see here, and plenty to keep groups of all ages entertained. Visitors should not go home without exploring the Killarney National Park, with its overpowering and majestic scenery. Nor should Cork's diverse attractions and nightlife be overlooked. Great memories await you here.

Trad Session in Donegal, Ireland

Donegal & Sligo Ireland's North West

Donegal & Sligo Travel Guide

If there is perhaps less in the way of organised tourist infrastructure here than in some of the more conventional tourist areas further south, those who let this deter them will certainly be missing out. This is especially true to for those who enjoy the great outdoors. Ireland displays its beauty in all regions, but nowhere more so than here. If you forget your camera, you'll be glad you found a new one in Donegal or Sligo's quaint and narrow shopping streets before heading for the coast: these views you will not want to forget.

About Donegal & Sligo
The Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland Belfast, Derry & the Antrim Coast

Northern Ireland Travel Guide

In peace, Northern Ireland has finally staked its rightful claim as one of the most beautiful, memorable and cultural regions to be found anywhere on the island of Ireland. Nowhere is Ireland's recent history more strongly felt than in the North, and a tour of Belfast in particular would be incomplete without taking this into account. But visitors will deprive themselves if they don't look beyond The Troubles and see the North for what it really is - one of most exciting and dynamic places you will visit on any western European tour.
