Book cheap holidays and city breaks to Ireland

The land of shamrocks and St Patrick's Day, Ireland captures the imagination with its lilting charm. Though it's a relatively small country, Ireland's countryside includes an impressive range of landscapes: towering mountains, magical woodlands, rolling pastures, rocky coastlines, and shadowy peat bogs. Sleepy villages dot the countryside as cosmopolitan cities dominate the cultural landscape: urban centres like Dublin, Cork and Galway have thousand-year histories that proudly entwine with their more modern faces.

While its reputation may be riddled with clichés, a holiday in Ireland is full of pleasures and surprises, and the country's appeal has little to do with leprechauns and shillelaghs. Ireland's culture has permeated the global consciousness, particularly through literature and music: celebrated writers like James Joyce, WB Yeats, Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift called the Emerald Isle home; and Irish music and dance has circled the globe with breakout acts like Riverdance and U2.

A holiday in Ireland offers myriad possibilities: outdoor enthusiasts can hike scenic routes like the Ring of Kerry and explore the beauty of Killarney National Park; history buffs will marvel at ancient buildings like St Patrick's Cathedral and Blarney Castle; and avid readers won't want to miss the James Joyce Museum and Trinity College Dublin; while those simply looking for a good time can find one in Dublin's lively Temple Bar District, or in almost any pub in this lively and sociable society.
