Holidays in Ireland are difficult to compare with breaks elsewhere in Europe – the Emerald Isle is genuinely a destination apart, and not just geographically. Eternally associated with rolling green landscapes, charming locals and lashings of Guinness, the country exudes a hopelessly romantic power over travellers.

From the towering bulk of the Cliffs of Moher to the historic city squares of Dublin, Ireland is filled with natural spectacles and centuries of tradition.

There’s far more to holidays in Ireland than the clichés, of course. Ireland is a dynamic, forward-facing nation that understands exactly how to impress its visitors. For every kooky cobbled street and blustery mountain panorama, you’ll find a bang-on-trend restaurant or stylish boutique hotel.

Ireland is also one of Europe’s most beautiful corners – some of the most unforgettable moments it offers – a hike along the glorious Kerry Way, for example – are also its cheapest.
