Ireland

The ultimate guide

Of emerald isles and leprechauns

Rolling verdant hillsides, ancient castles and crumbling cliff faces make Ireland an astounding destination to visit.The towns are charming, as are the people, whose spirits never seem to be dampened by the insistent rainfall and the best way to travel is by car to see the countryside in all its glory.If you’re lucky you may be blessed with days of sunshine. If not, you’ll be receiving the true Irish experience.

Whatever the day brings, polish it off with a Guinness and a bit of craic at your local pub and you’ll be doing all right, we reckon.

This guide focuses mainly on the Republic of Ireland, though includes a few things to see and do in Northern Ireland, too.
