Ireland holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

The Republic of Ireland is a country that stretches way beyond the pubs and traditional music of its capital city, Dublin. The coasts and mountains offer ever changing perspectives on Ireland holidays and no better way to discover them than on some the shining emerald walking trails, such as the Kerry or Dingle Trails. Ireland’s islands are also places to capture culture at its purest, as well as ancient archaeology, such as on the Aran Islands off the west coast.
