There’s a reason why Ireland is an incredibly popular place for tourists to go on holiday, or for a great weekend break. Ireland is filled with culture and history but is also a lot of fun. Plus, the people are some of the friendliest you will ever meet. There are so many great reasons to visit Ireland for a luxury tour, so picking 10 was extremely difficult. However, we feel that these 10 reasons give you plenty of excuses to visit Ireland:
Ireland has so many castles; it’s incredible! These stunning buildings are so historic and beautiful. You could dedicate an entire trip just to visit all the castles and still wouldn’t get to see half of them. Blarney Castle in County Clare is probably the most visited in Ireland. This may be because the legend states that if you plant a kiss on the Blarney Stone, you will be granted the gift of eloquence forever more. Go and try it yourself!
For the opposite type of experience, visit one of the festivals that take part in Ireland. Of course, St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to visit Ireland; everyone is patriotic and proud in green. The streets are lined with fun parades, and the pubs are booming and proudly serving Guinness and green drinks! Also, more specialised festivals, such as the Dublin Writer’s Festival and Dance Festival are a lot of fun too. If you like seafood, definitely check out the Galway International Oyster Festival that takes place in September each year.
Speaking of Galway, the city itself is a fantastic reason to visit Ireland. It is an extremely popular vacation spot in the summer for people from all over the world. It has a bustling nightlife since it is the hometown of the National University of Ireland. However, it also has some historical nightlife features, with the King’s Head pub being over 800 years’ old. It was named after King Charles, who lived there after Ireland was taken over by Cromwell. It is also a great location to access all the amazing sights of Ireland.
Ireland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world when it comes to scenery. The Cliffs of Moher are probably the most iconic; while standing so far, but yet so close to the Atlantic Ocean, you feel like you are on top of the world. Then, there is the Ring of Kerry, which was described as being “kind of a big deal” by Ron Burgundy. You have approximately 111 miles of road to drive along, experiencing some of the most incredible sights and scenery along the way.
Due to all the amazing scenery and sights in Ireland, it can be a great place for a wonderful Irish adventure. Whether you plan to visit Ireland to party, you can still take part in some activities in the great outdoors. After all, what better way to nurse your hangover than to go hiking in the beautiful evergreen hills? Several places along the Ring of Kerry offer fun activities to do, which allow you to enjoy the scenery whilst you do it. These include rock climbing, paragliding and wind surfing. Then, why not hire a mountain bike and cycle some of the way around the Ring of Kerry, stopping off at the iconic points along the way?
There’s a reason why you see an “Irish Pub” in almost every town you visit – the Irish do pubs remarkably well! When you visit Ireland, you will be sure to see pubs wherever you go, always providing a welcoming atmosphere for everyone. Usually, there is some live Irish music, providing an authentic but also modern musical experience. Known for their stouts and lagers, Irish pubs are a great way to kick back and unwind after a long day. You can often find great home-cooked meals, with Irish classics such as a beef and Guinness pie or bangers and mash.
Ireland’s capital city has so much to do and see that the city alone is a great reason to visit Ireland. Filled with cultural places like Trinity College, Ireland’s oldest university, or the National Gallery, there are plenty of free historical attractions to visit. It also has fun for the family at Dublin Zoo, and fun for the adults at the most popular tourist attraction in Ireland – the Guinness Storehouse. Of course, you could do all of these things and finish the day in the iconic Gravity Bar at the top of the Storehouse, with amazing views of the city. If you do visit Dublin, be sure to grab yourself a Dublin Pass, which will get you free access to over 30 of Dublin’s top attractions.
The Irish folk are some of the friendliest you will ever meet. They welcome tourists from all over the world and buy you a drink just to say thank you for being in their country! They will get you involved with Irish culture and teach you the ways of their land. Their sense of humour will see them laughing at you attempting to pronounce Gaelic words, or doing your best Irish impression, because you’ve seen “Snatch”. You will be sure to have made several Irish friends by the end of your trip.
When you visit Ireland, you will be sure to come across something with an amazing historical story behind it. The island features a site, Newgrange, which is older than the Egyptian Pyramids and England’s Stonehenge. The Book of Kells is on display in Trinity College in Dublin, which dates back to the 9th Century – an absolutely overwhelming part of Irish heritage.
When you think about Irish cuisine, you probably think that every dish is filled with potatoes. You may be partially correct, but Ireland is becoming a must-dine destination. Each September, Galway hosts the International Oyster and Seafood Festival and Dublin Bay is a perfect spot to find delicious seafood. In addition to this, Ireland boasts heart stews and farmhouse cheeses.
Whatever the reason you choose to visit Ireland is, you will certainly be sure to enjoy yourself and experience wonderful culture and fun!
