The Island of Ireland

Binevenagh, County Londonderry

In Ireland, we’ll show you wonderful places that you won’t find anywhere else in the world…

Brimming with character and characters, Ireland invites you to explore just a little more all the time. To encounter those famous 100,000 welcomes for yourself. To wander around our cities, towns and villages. To hear the sounds of revelry echoing from cobblestoned street corners, from inside laughter-filled pub doorways, and in time to the beat of traditional Irish music played wherever and whenever the mood takes us.

And you’ll find secrets, too: buried in silent monastic villages, winding along coastal roads, written in our gilded libraries’ most ancient manuscripts. But here’s the thing: you’ll find the people here have little interest in keeping secrets. They are storytellers at heart, after all.

See what you unearth when you follow the path of your favourite writer, chase a much-loved legend, trace your family history. And as you sup a pint to the backdrop of lilting music and laughing locals, you just might feel like you’ve belonged here, all this time.

With its cobbled street, cosy pubs and 9th century Viking origins, Dublin city is the very definition of good things in small packages. Energising and surprising in equal measure, the city invites you to walk through 1,000 years of history along the River Liffey and through the historic city streets. Visit incredible museums for free; read the works of local wordsmiths in this UNESCO City of Literature; find out why Guinness always tastes better when it's served at home; and tap your feet to the sweet sounds of homegrown heroes U2, Sinéad O’Connor and Thin Lizzy. Dublin's a cosmopolitan city that's as friendly as a village, maybe it's time to get introduced?
