Destination of the Month - March
Also known as “The Emerald Isle,” Ireland is Europe’s most westerly country. Amazing for hiking, road-trips and sightseeing. Ireland is known for its physical beauty and is a top destination for 2020. With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, it is only right to highlight the country where it originates from.
The number one reason to visit Ireland is for the stunning natural wonders such as the Cliffs of Moher and the Giant’s Causeway, which both draw serious crowds to Ireland. The Cliffs of Moher is Ireland’s most famous attraction while the Irish see the Giant’s Causeway as an 8th Wonder of the World.
While in Ireland, we highly recommend to visit the most northern part of the island of Ireland, it is absolutely beautiful and proves that from top to bottom, Ireland is full of beauty. As you may or may not know, Dublin is known for its perfected “Guinness beer”. Spend an afternoon at the Guinness Storehouse and learn how to pour the perfect Guinness. Other amazing highlights in Ireland include a visit to Ireland’s most beautiful park, Killarney National Park. Another must-do attraction is a visit to the world-famous Blarney Stone where people come from all over the world to kiss it upside down to gain the gift of eloquence and persuasiveness. Sounds odd, but a highlight for many!
Keep in mind that travel between April and June as well as September and October are the best times to go. Ireland’s weather is not promising so it’s always best to pack for warm to cool temperatures.
Ideally, you should plan to spend around 10 days in Ireland in order to hit the main highlights including Dublin, the Cliffs or Moher and Northern Ireland. If you give yourself 10 days you should expect to be quite busy with an action-packed itinerary. If you are able to expand your itinerary, you could also plan to visit other nearby areas within the United Kingdom such as Scotland and England.
Royal Irish Tours specialize in wonderful itineraries that bring you to all the Irish highlights and get you up close and personal. They will give you an authentic Irish experience.
