Ireland’s emerald-green pastoral landscapes, its sense of hospitality, and its celebrated cultural traditions, from folk music to Irish dance, make it an inviting destination. It’s a place where locals may greet you as old friends, and it has sights to stir the eyes and the mind: the otherworldly geology of Giant’s Causeway, the hard-hitting yet striking murals in certain areas of Belfast, and the unspoiled Dingle Peninsula where you're more likely to hear Gaelic than English. Our specialists have a detailed understanding of both the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland, and can help you unlock their intriguing history as well as their complex relationship.
Suffused with a longstanding tradition of music and storytelling, Ireland is a compact island whose warm welcome transcends the cliché. Our specialists have explored it from coast to mountains to its two constituent capitals, Dublin and Belfast, and can recommend the best ways for you to spend time here.
