Ireland is just a short flight or ferry ride away, meaning it’s easy to visit any time of the year. Pssst, it makes a great Bank Holiday weekend getaway! Here are the top 10 reasons why we’re mad about Ireland.
Cliffs of Moher
One of Europe’s most amazing cliffs, the towering sheer face is best seen from the sea. Well you certainly wouldn’t get us peeking over the edge!
It’s not really a trip to Ireland without a pint of the “black stuff” – and as legend has it it tastes even sweeter on home soil.
Made famous by Riverdance, we’re talking proper dancing here, not the sort that Westlife and Boyzone made famous!
Gift of the Gab
The Irish are certainly known for being able to talk the hind legs off a donkey and you can get your gift of the gab by kissing the Blarney Stone.
A cross between Gaelic football and hockey this fast-moving game has to be seen to be believed.
Brightly-coloured houses were apparently a rebellion against mourning for the Monarchy and it’s stuck!
Not the song – leprechauns, pots of gold at the end of the rainbow and four-leaved clovers!
A giant’s road to Scotland or just some rocks – it’s hard not to feel like the former is true when you stand here!
With Irish-made fabrics like wool and a budding fashion scene, wannabe fashionistas could certainly take a leaf out of this island’s book!
Wheelchairs on the Beach
Yes – sand is not a wheelchair’s best friend, but in Kilkee they have a special beach wheelchair allowing access for everybody.
