You can’t say you’ve traveled Europe until you’ve been to the Emerald Isle. This island of natural beauty and the home of pub culture has wonderful old towns, lovely people and lots of greenery. We definitely felt it deserved a package to itself!
Start your trip in the buzzing capital of Ireland. Dublin is a city where magic hides behind every corner. Strolling through the bustling Temple Bar neighbourhood and wandering the narrow cobblestone streets, you’ll soon feel like you’re in another world. Explore the museums (where admission is often free!), go shopping in Kildare Village or take a tour of the famous Guinness Storehouse Factory and get merry on the samples!
Next stop is Cork. Despite being the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland, this charming place still retains the friendliness and community buzz of a a small town. Situated on a hillside surrounded by natural beauty, there is plenty to discover here. Cork is famous for the many music festivals that take place annually (such as the Cork Jazz Festival) where the whole city join to celebrate.
Moving on to Galway! Many only know this Irish city because of the chart-topping Ed Sheeran song – however, full of colourful houses, quirky streets, quaint pubs and stylish restaurants, this is not a place to miss. Check out Quay Street and High Street, where locals meet for pints and street music during the evenings. Galway is famous for its nightlife, so make sure you dive right in! A day trip to the Cliffs of Moher is also a must before heading to your last destination.
Last but not least you’ll be visiting the capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast. Although the city is the second largest on the Irish Island after Dublin, it is often forgotten when it comes to scouting out destinations for that next big urban adventure. The most famous and luxurious ship in the world, the Titanic, was built here and the region around the city was a key filming location for HBO’s Game of Thrones. It is also the perfect base for a day trip to the world famous Giants Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge if you have time.
