"Over my many trips to the island, I’ve discovered that some of the best things you can experience here are the simplest: enjoying a pint at the local pub, getting to know the locals and indulging in a bit of craic (fun)."
—DANE TREDWAY, EXPERIENCE DESIGNER
Céad míle fáilte!
You have to love culture with a phrase dedicated to wishing you ‘one hundred thousand welcomes,’ but such is the warmth of the Irish spirit that it rolls off the tongue with the reliability of a well-poured Guinness. Whether it’s the beer, the dramatic natural beauty, the ubiquitous music spilling from cozy pubs or the fairy-tale castles that dot the landscape, it’s true the Irish have plenty to be content with. It’s a country that lends itself perfectly to slow discovery, through immersion in history, tales and traditions. So, draw your chair by the fire, pour yourself a drop, and let us tell you a tale of one hundred thousand ways we can craft your bespoke welcome to Ireland.
Discover the possibilities:
Ireland on Foot
Ireland's West Coast is steeped in history, with glacial-era geography and millennia of human evolution recorded in the very landscape. Rugged mountains level into lunar landscapes of karst and bog, running right into the Atlantic. The region's natural diversity, Neolithic ruins and pastoral lifestyle breed a character all their own. In numerous villages, you’ll walk through, and in the real-life castles where you’ll lay your head to rest at night, one can’t help but embrace the true Irish welcome.
Ireland by Bike
Picture yourself in an Irish postcard, cycling the emerald countryside past imposing Neolithic tombs, pausing at a local lobster bar for lunch. Continuing along the Flaggy Shore, a landscape so inspiring that it compelled the great Irish poets Heaney and Yeats to put pen to paper. In the evening, a pint of Guinness by the fire at the local pub, before dinner and a fine night’s sleep in your castle home. Such is what Irish days are made of.
Ireland Family Adventure
With the music from a trad Irish folk band bouncing off the castle walls, discover the joys of a family trip to Ireland! Biking through The Burren, spotting puffins as you hike the Cliffs of Moher and taking in the dramatic Wild Atlantic Way. Falconry lessons in castles, sea-kayaking the fjord at Killary, watching the sheepdogs go through their paces, and a walk exploring crumbling forts with our archaeologist chum. Happy memories are made of this.
Rich, unique and omnipresent, Irish culture will be a welcomed companion by your side throughout your travels in Ireland. Whether it’s the simple joys of traditional music, dance, great food and drink to be found in the local pub, accompanied by tales tall and true, or the remnants of castles, fortresses and tombs at every turn. History and custom live strong in the landscapes, way of life, and lyrical language of the Irish.
