From unspoiled landscape and dramatic coastline to buzzing cities with warm welcomes, Ireland has something for every type of visitor. With festivals celebrating literature, food, families and music, as well as surfing the waves, walking the coastline, or travelling back in time in a museum or ancient fort, Ireland’s magic and wild beauty never fail to surprise and delight clients.
Next stop Ireland
With more airlines flying directly to Ireland and more airport hubs providing onward connections here, it has never been easier or cheaper for clients to travel to Ireland. Whether it’s to one of five international airports (Dublin, Belfast, Shannon, Cork, Knock) for long haul travellers or to one of four smaller airports (City of Derry, Donegal, Kerry and Waterford) for those travelling from or via the UK, the welcome is just as warm. A number of ferry companies also operate between Ireland and the UK and France.
Into the wild
This is a land of majestic cliffs etched by invigorating surf, island escapes, unspoilt beaches, rolling green hills and crystal-clear lakes. And with County Donegal crowned the coolest place in the world to visit by National Geographic Traveller and the Cliffs of Moher voted one of the most beautiful places on earth by Condé Nast Traveler, you won’t have trouble selling Ireland to your clients.
From ancient high kings to modern day poets, Ireland has a rich heritage that will appeal to clients who enjoy all things cultural. But Ireland's heritage is not limited to its museums and galleries, it's alive in the stories, songs and traditions of the island. With maps as guides and itineraries as inspiration, clients can travel either on tours or independently to castles, forts, monuments and bustling towns and villages, to learn for themselves about famous battles, intriguing characters and sacred rituals.
Warm your cockles
"You're welcome" is something you hear everywhere you go in Ireland. It's hard to explain the warmth of Ireland to clients who haven't yet visited, but its promise certainly entices them to experience it for themselves. With many clients craving an ever-more individual travel experience, it is the generosity of spirit and good humour of the Irish that provides it. Their natural warmth makes Ireland an unforgettable destination.
Something for everyone
No two people are the same, and no two clients are the same. Tours are a doorway into the beating heart of the island, as well as the forces that shaped it. For clients interested in heritage and history, they can take in cathedrals, castles, forts, museums, gaols and more. For culture vultures, there are music and literary festivals, galleries and theatre. And anyone looking to experience our vibrant cities, exciting music scene and high-energy activities, well, we’ve got them covered too!
