Getting There

Getting to Ireland

There are many airports in Ireland, large and small. The four main ones are Shannon, Cork, Knock, and Dublin, which is by far the largest in the country. Minor airports include Donegal and Galway. You can also arrive by ship from the UK and France. From your arrival point, you can reach your end destination by using the country’s extensive train and bus network, or by driving yourself. It’s recommended to rent a car during your stay, because many of Ireland’s best spots are in remote, difficult to access areas.

Weather & Climate

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 letting .

Attractions

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 homes.

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.

Local Events

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.
