Stay Local With Holidays in Ireland

Holidays don't always have to mean going abroad, there are plenty of hidden gems closer to home!

Stay at home and go on holidays in Ireland this year. From the bright lights and fair heart of Dublin to the breathtaking scenery of Cork and Galway, there is no country in the world that compares to Ireland.

Surf's Up

Holidays in Ireland provide an adrenaline-fuelled playground for adventure seekers and this all starts on the windswept coast. Bundoran Beach in Donegal once held the world championships and since then surfers flock to the shores in search of riding The Peak. One of the best breaks in Ireland can be found on Bundoran and the long stretch of beach is nothing short of spectacular.

Heavenly Cove, also known as Rossnowlagh, is another ideal spot not only for surfers but for water sports enthusiasts of all varieties. This long sweeping beach provides an ideal spot for swimming and sunbathing on those few glorious days we get.

Murvagh Beach is a haven for families who want to enjoy the pleasure of the beach without the worry. Warm waters, shallow sandbanks and miles of sun-soaked dunes and gorgeous woodlands make this beach an ideal choice for exploring.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Staying at home and going on holidays in Ireland gives you the chance to experience Mother Nature at her very best. Ireland is awash with deep green colours, craggy mountain tops, mysterious woodlands and pebbled beaches. The Giant's Causeway in Country Antrim is a true wonder of nature and a must see once in your life.

Killarney boasts stunning landscapes and a true old school feel, taking you back to your roots. Taking a horse and cart ride up to the Gap of Dunloe is a great family experience and offers something different to the norm.

Newgrange boasts a prehistoric site older than both Stonehenge and the pyramids in Egypt. In the unassuming yet dramatic Boyne Valley you can explore the ancient passage tombs that lie beneath the earth. Winter solstice makes for a popular time to visit Newgrange as the sun hits the tomb at a spectacular angle and illuminates the hide chamber, although you may have to wait a few years to do this as there is a huge waiting list! But it is very special at any time of year.
