Getaways in Ireland

Ireland is a sublime countryside, Ireland is history in stone, Ireland is windswept beauty, Ireland is ancient rocks and great legends, Ireland is a world built of words,
Ireland is a journey into the imagination .

Lonely Planet

I work in Tourism at the moment and I love chatting to all the people that visit! I like to hear their stories, where they are from, where they are going to, be it an Irish native from down the road or someone from further a field. From working in this sector, I have a good understanding of what people expect when they go on holidays. You want to receive a great service for what you pay for, you want to meet kind and helpful people along your travels, you want to be able to get help if you find yourself stuck or in trouble, make memories, enjoy the different cultures and have an amazing trip!

Some people want to visit the Emerald Isle and see it in all its glory in a couple of days. Others arrive with no plans other then to immerse themselves in the Irish culture and to see where to road takes them.

People get stuck on the word ‘Holiday’ thinking that a holiday has to be abroad, in the sun or at the beach, to somewhere you aren’t used to, to have an enjoyable time but that doesn’t mean you have to get on a plane to do it!

I personally, think that Ireland is a slice of brilliance and the amount of places to see and activities to experience is limitless, if you just say YES!

I always give my tips/opinions to people that I meet at work. So I thought I would put them down here too! Grab some friends/family, pack a bag, take a drive and I am sure you can have some fun, Ireland might just surprise you 😉

So, I will post getaways that I have done around Ireland and I hope you like them! Who knows you might even want to take a few sneaky nights away even if it is ‘just down the road’ or this may help you in planning your visit to Ireland!
