My Vacation Lady has sent a good number of clients to Ireland this year. A couple are actually ancestry vacations where the clients are going to explore their grandparents or parents home towns.
Ireland might not be the first place you think of when you think of visiting Europe. France, Italy and Greece are all very popular but there are some great reasons to plan a vacation or honeymoon to Ireland.
First of all, Ireland is actually pretty reasonably priced compared to the very popular vacation and honeymoon destinations in Europe. Airfare is actually pretty reasonable. There are lots of nonstop options from many US cities and the flights are pretty short (compared to some of the other European countries)
In addition to some favorable pricing, this is an ideal country to drive around and explore on your own (if you are comfortable driving on the “wrong” side of the road). It’s a beautiful county and you can travel from rugged coastline of the Ring of Kerry or the Cliffs of Moher to pastures to mountains to cosmopolitan cities.
- Ring of Kerry
- The Dingle Peninsula
- Cliffs of Moher
- The Burren
- Blarney Castle and the Blarney Stone
- Giant’s Causeway
- The Aran Islands
- Killarney National Park
- The Guinness Store House or the Jameson Distillery in Dublin
Our clients have seen many of these and even more including hiking the Gap of Dunloe, trying Falconry, feasting at a Medieval Dinner at Bunratty Castle.
Whether you want to explore on your own or be part of a group or have your own private driver, Ireland may be a destination to consider!
My Vacation Lady can help you plan your next vacation or honeymoon to Ireland and we’re confident that you’ll come back as happy as our past clients have.
