Known as the land of 40 shades of green, a hotel break in Ireland is also an opportunity to explore exciting cities, fascinating history and a truly unique culture.
With the diversity of its scenery matched only by the richness of its cultural history, Ireland truly offers something for everyone. A hotel break in Ireland is ideal for nature lovers, whether it’s fishing amidst rugged, rocky surroundings in County Mayo, kayaking in County Kerry or hiking through the country’s largest continuous upland area in County Wicklow, which is known as ‘The Garden of Ireland’ for good reason. Ireland also offers a wide range of architectural attractions including Iron Age hill forts on the Aran Islands, the medieval Bunratty Castle in County Clare and the iconic Spire of Dublin, an innovative modern landmark. Indeed, the experimental spirit of the Irish capital has inspired legendary writers such as James Joyce, W.B. Yeats, Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett, and visitors can follow in their footsteps through the picturesque cobbled streets of this UNESCO City of Literature before relaxing with a pint of Guinness at one of the city’s many cosy traditional pubs. Other exciting destinations for an Irish hotel break include Galway, a vibrant town with a medieval Latin Quarter and a thriving arts scene, and the welcoming city of Limerick, which enjoys a lively café culture and nightlife, and can comfortably be explored on foot or by bike.
