Top tips

  • Renting a car is well worth it to beat the crowds and do things at your own pace
  • Get a Heritage Card and get free admission to all fee-paying state owned heritage sites
  • Ask a local – if in doubt about where to go and what to see next, ask a local, who will know the most up to date must-do’s and will greet you as a friend
  • Don’t be afraid to visit out of season, in December Dublin has fantastic Christmas markets to give you that festive feeling or check out Waterford’s ‘Winterval’. The snowy peaks of Croagh Patrick in County Mayo are simply stunning.
  • Ireland can look small on a map, but packs a punch. Don’t try and fit too many cities or attractions into one trip, allow yourself time to give each place the attention it deserves

When To Go

Festivals run throughout the year so if there is something in specific you would like to see/do then please ask us

November – March – Rural island tends to close down at this time of year but the larger cities will still have a buzz. St Patrick’s Day is of course on the 17th March so expect crowds and book early to avoid disappointment.

March – May – Spring flowers bloom and the beautiful parks and green spaces wake up from their winter slumber. This is a great time for walkers and those wanting to explore the great outdoors in a mild temperature.

June – September – This is the warmest time of year here, and where the landscape is at its most vibrant

September – November – As Autumn comes to Ireland some of the key attractions of the summer including the Skellig Islands close to the public or become impossible to reach due to the change in weather. But this is still a fantastic time to visit with less crowds and plenty of festivals on the calendar.
