Republic of Ireland & Northern Ireland

ireland

Once visited, Ireland is never forgotten. What makes it so special? Some would say the rugged scenery and quaint villages, for others, it’s the buzzing cities. But for many it’s simply the laidback Irish charm, and enjoyment of the perfect pint of Guinness.

Head to Dublin to discover gorgeous Georgian architecture intermingled with innovative sculpture; or kick back and relax in one of the city’s many pubs, known for their friendliness and live music performances. Dublin is renowned as a city of writers, so visit the James Joyce museum, or for art lovers, see the Caravaggio in the National Gallery.

Northern Ireland is a fascinating destination. Riverside cities buzz with new verve; contrasting with craggy cliffs and glens on the Antrim Coast, the lakes of Strangford, Neagh and Erne, the Giant’s Causeway and the stunning Mourne Mountains.

Belfast is the perfect location from which to explore these superb surroundings. Wander through the central shopping area from Donegall Place to Royal Avenue and you’ll find it bustling with food markets, chic boutiques and al fresco cafés.
