Discover Ireland

The Emerald Isle is rightly named, owing to its wooded glens, lush countryside and tranquil bogland, aside from its beautiful sea-sprayed coastal paths, and the glittering waters of its many thousands of loughs. Ireland is a natural paradise just waiting to be explored.

The mysteries of the distant past are almost tangible at the prehistoric stone circles, burial mounds and other ancient sites dotted right across the Irish landscape. Explore the remote monastic settlement on the awe-inspiring island of Skellig Michael, or behold the solstice secrets of the Newgrange tomb at Midsummer.

Trace the footsteps of literary greats in charming Dublin, or find out the craic over a glass whiskey in cultural and cosmopolitan Belfast.
