Holidays to Ireland

Consisting of two separate countries, the island of Ireland is made up of Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, which is the second largest island in the British Isles lying to the west of Great Britain.

Northern Ireland is bordered by The Republic of Ireland to the south. It has a very interesting and long history that has resulted in many historical sites of great interest. If your holidays to Ireland take you to Northern Ireland, make sure that you visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Christ Church Cathedral. Visits to Malahide Castle, Dublin Castle or the Ardgillan Castle and Demesne, would be a great start to your holiday to the Republic of Ireland.

Killarney National Park should also be included on any holiday to Ireland. This massive 10,000-hectare area has lakes, gardens, mountains, parks, and woodland containing flora and fauna, some being native only to Ireland. Inside the park, visitors can enjoy fishing, boating at Ross Castle, or visit one of several preserved Victorian mansions that are open to the public.

No visit to Ireland would be complete without a tour thorough Dublin Castle. Built for the first Lord of Ireland in 1210, this magnificent castle has been refurbished several times during its existence and remains a modern day structure of the 18th century. During its lifetime, the castle has been used a courthouse, a prison, a royal residence and even the place where the Irish Crown Jewels were kept, until those were stolen in 1907.

The stunning Aran Islands should be on every visitor’s list. Located 48km (30 miles) from Galway Bay, travellers will discover many Christian and prehistoric monuments including the amazing Dun Aengus Fort. These islands are lined by mile after mile of stone walls that offer spectacular views from cliff tops.

Holidays in Ireland should include visits to the towns of Limerick, Cork, Tipperary, Derry, Galway, and Waterford, home of the famous crystal making company. Much of the country’s historical monuments lie in areas of Dublin. Due to a recent economic boom, the city has been able to restore and rejuvenate many of these areas and also includes clubs, bars, restaurants, and shopping areas. The city centre is where exploring tourists will find elegant Georgian buildings.

Climate

The months of July and August are considered the hot summer months in Ireland, however warm summer days occur from May until August. Summers are warm, reaching upwards of 30C, but can be cooler. Their winters are more on the mild side with day temperatures of 5C. Even though they can be long and damp, Irish winters do not experience much snowfall.

Currency

Your holidays in Ireland will require use of the Euro, which is the country’s official currency.
