Five reasons to visit Ireland

Home to the shamrock, leprechaun and Guinness, Ireland is a land of legend, magic and fascination. Once you've fallen in love with Ireland, your heart will be forever green. Here are just five reasons to visit Ireland…

The Wild Atlantic Way
Driving the Wild Atlantic Way is the best way to take in this stunningly beautiful coastline. From the Slieve League Mountains (three times as high as the better known Cliffs of Moher) to the Ring of Kerry, the seaside cliffs and castles will leave you enchanted.

Trinity College Library, University of Dublin
You’ll feel as if you stumbled into Hogwarts or another of those awesome movie libraries… Trinity College Library is home to the famous Book of Kells. The 65 metre main chamber of the Old Library houses 200,000 of the library's oldest books and was built between 1712 and 1732.

Giant’s Causeway
Marvel at the mystery of the out-of-this-world Giant’s Causeway – towering hexagonal basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption.

Galway
Discover the quintessential Irish town of Galway where Gaelic is still spoken in the streets. Brightly painted pubs, live music, cafes, medieval town walls and sounds of the seaside create a charming Irish atmosphere.

Guinness 
One of the most successful beer brands worldwide, enjoying a pint of the distinctive dark brew in a pub or visiting the Guinness brewery in Dublin is a must - whether you're normally a beer drinker or not. Sláinte (cheers in Gaelic Irish)!
