Top things to eat and drink when in Ireland
For food and drink lovers, Ireland is something of a dream destination to rent a holiday cottage. Most famous probably is the iconic Irish beer, Guinness. Served in every pub and bar across the land, it’s a deep black colour with a creamy white head and is truly delicious. If you go to the right place, they’ll even craft the head of the beer into a shamrock for you, one of Ireland’s many lucky symbols. Knock a few of those back and you’ll sleep well in your Irish holiday cottage no problem.
But Ireland also boasts a real traditional food culture. Wherever your accommodation is, you’ll never be far from the sea, and one of the must tries is a classic fish chowder – that’s a thick fish soup to you and me, made from the meaty types of ‘white’ fish out there. Wash that down with a Guinness and you’ll be happy as Larry.
Ireland is also famed for its stew. Normally made with mutton, potatoes, and onion, the stew is packed with pearl barley and filled with herby flavour.
Weather in Ireland
Ireland is a lush country, with green open spaces and stunning landscapes, which is a result of its unpredictable climate. You never know quite what you're going to get in Ireland! The good news is that Ireland's weather is seldom extreme, so it won't be too cold or hot whenever you visit. Spring brings pleasant temperatures and sunshine, summer is characterised by long hours of sunlight, and winter and autumn bring cool but manageable temperatures. Because you can't always know what the weather will be like, it's advisable to bring many layers of clothing for all kinds of weather to your Ireland holiday accommodation.
Things to do in Ireland
Ireland blends culture, history, and natural beauty, so there’ll always be something to do during your stay in Ireland holiday cottages.
The capital city, Dublin, is a good starting point for your trip. This thriving city has beautiful architecture and many excellent pubs, making it one of Europe’s most unique destinations. There are many, many attractions to see.
See one of the world’s most beautiful libraries at Trinity College, or see an outstanding art collection featuring Monet, Picasso, and Van Gogh at the National Gallery of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Cathedral dates all the way back to 1220 and offers a glimpse into old, medieval Dublin. Even if you’re not normally a beer drinker, stop by the Guinness Storehouse for a taste of the black liquid as well as a history of the famous drink.
On Ireland’s gorgeous west coast lie the Cliffs of Moher, one of the country’s most spectacular sights. These 230 metre cliffs stand tall over the Atlantic Ocean and will be a highlight of your trip, so don’t forget your camera. Speaking of cameras - a photo with the Blarney Stone is an essential experience when visiting Ireland. Give it a kiss and hope its magic rubs off on you. It’s located in Blarney Castle, which dates back to 1446.
Visit Kilkenny to experience one of Ireland’s best cities. The city has plenty of attractions, including Kilkenny Castle, Black Abbey, and St. Canice’s Cathedral, but the real draw is its atmosphere and general vibe. The nightlife, beautiful narrow streets and famous Irish personality makes it a must do for those staying in Ireland holiday lettings.
Best things to do in Ireland with kids
Ireland, with a young population itself, has plenty to do for kids. If you’re accommodation is in Dublin, then your first destination should be the brand new Dublin water park. Fitted with climbing frames, slides, and even a water-based obstacle course, it’s sure to tire the kids out enough for the evening. Another classic outdoor Ireland activity is going rafting on the Longford Rapids. Not only are the rapids beautiful, winding their way through leafy Irish countryside, but they’re an adrenaline rush, too, with waves aplenty.
If your kids are interested in geography, then the Copper Coast Geopark near Waterford is well worth checking out – Waterford has some beautiful holiday cottages, too. With extraordinary rock formations, some of which are more than 460 million years old, it’s a real nature trip.
Ireland, with its centuries old Celtic culture, is a great place to soak up some history. If you’re in the mood for some music, then Ireland has a buzzing folk scene. Head into really any traditional bar on a Sunday evening - wherever your accommodation is - and you’ll find a small band playing traditional Irish folk, complete with a fiddle and the Bodhran (a little like a tambourine).For something a little different, it’s worth heading just outside of Cork to Blarney Castle. Built into the battlements is the Blarney Stone – a piece of limestone that is said to confer the ability to speak eloquently when it’s kissed.
Ireland’s annual events
Ireland hosts many events that take place all across the year. These are usually big celebrations with plenty of atmosphere and fun. They also honour Ireland’s rich cultural history, as in the case of Dublin Writers Week, when internationally recognized authors gather for a series of talks and workshops.
Book your Ireland holiday lettings for March 17th and you’ll get to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in its home country. Events take place all over the land and wherever your Ireland holiday home is, you won’t be too far from a celebration. At the very least, head to the local pub and have a couple of pints of Guinness to celebrate. In Dublin, the celebrations run from the 17th to the 20th, with parades, events and music entertaining the many thousands who gather for the festival.
Each October, tens of thousands of visitors descend upon Cork for the Jazz Festival, a famous event that always promises some of the best jazz in Europe. More than 90 venues host events across the city during the festival, which has been held annually since 1978. As well as performances, there are also street shows, lectures, and much more.
