A country rich with history, folklore, traditions and character, Ireland is a fascinating destination to explore on a package tour.

Separated from Britain by the Irish Sea and with a rugged Atlantic coast to the West, Ireland is a small island with a tremendous history which captivates the imagination of all who visit. It’s mild yet rainy climate ensures the landscapes remain lush and verdant green, characterised by leafy woodland and rolling hills.

Ireland is composed of three provinces; Leinster, Munster, Connacht and a part of the province of Ulster. Within these provinces are counties, which the population strongly identify with.

Aside from the vast open spaces and fairytale landscapes, evocative of the wonderful folklore stories so intrinsic to Irish culture, a holiday to Ireland will also introduce you to the notoriously warm and friendly locals and a lively arts scene.

Irish continues to be taught in schools and the Irish are keen to preserve their Gaelic heritage. From iconic Irish Dancing to literature, limericks and music, Ireland is a hotbed for the expressive arts. Sports also occupy a significant space in the Irish identity; from golf to fishing and the famous Gaelic Games, sports enthusiasts will be catered for when they travel to Ireland.

The country’s Celtic heritage, more pronounced than in Britain, can be seen in several ancient sites, such as the Hill of Tara, and it’s Viking history can be explored in Waterford, the first Viking settlement in the country.

The ancient East of the country is a fabulous place to begin a tour of Ireland and the Atlantic Coast is perfect for nature lovers and home to neolithic ruins such as the Bru Na Boinne, which predates Egypt’s Great Pyramids.

In the 20th century, the Troubles on the island of Ireland were of great significance and still occupy a great part of the public memory, so a package holiday to Ireland can also give an insight into the struggles that happened here and the recent resolution, marked by the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

A visit to Ireland is not complete without a pint of Guinness, and although tourists might be counting on living the old stereotypes of Irish Bars and Four Leafed Clovers, Ireland offers so much more than this, seen both in its cosmopolitan capital, Dublin and it’s ancient ruins and woodland.

The small size of the island makes it the perfect place for a guided-tour holiday, where a short-drive can link medieval castle ruins with vibrant city streets so that the traveller can experience the complete essence of this magical country in just one trip.
