Dog-friendly rentals in Ireland offer you effortless access to some of the most magical experiences that this fabled country has to offer. Here are some of the top destinations you and your pet can discover:
Precipitous peaks cloaked in belts of mist, shimmering slicks of beaches and rollicking green meadows define the landscape of County Kerry. Of all the beaches to visit along the stunning coast, leashed dogs are welcome on the famed Kells Beach. Dogs are also welcome at Banna Strand, provided they stay on the leash.
Dripping in history, Galway is one of the most Irish of Irish towns. Fish the salmon-stocked River Corrib, or explore the seaside resort of Salthill, where the area's opalescent oysters are fished. Dogs are centre stage at the Greyhound Races, and the medieval city is full of dog-friendly pubs. Drop into The Urban Pup doggie daycare in town, or explore Merlin Park Woods, an old-growth woodland, with your furry friend.
Smart, gem-coloured buildings are reflected in Cork's waterways. The local farmers' market in Market Quay is well attended by pets, and the hipster hangouts and cosy pubs will welcome your pet as well. Bring your whole family to Bark and Bumble Café for instance, which also caters to your furry friend. Take a day trip to Glebe Country House, situated in the idyllic countryside, or Ballincollig Regional Park, which are both ideal for walks. The Donkey Sanctuary in nearby Liscarroll is also dog-friendly.
