Frequently Asked Questions
About Ireland Holiday Packages
Do you need some advice about Ireland holidays? Look no further. Below, we answer the most frequently asked questions about visiting Ireland. Should you need more guidance, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
If you’re visiting Ireland from a nearby country, like the UK, you can enjoy short breaks of up to 7 days. It’s a quick and easy journey so you can always return for more. But if you’re coming from further afield, you may want to spend 2 weeks to 3 weeks in Ireland to explore as much as possible in one trip.
Deciding which is prettier – Ireland or Scotland – is all a matter of perspective. Both these Celtic countries are blessed with beautiful lakes, dramatic mountains, and rugged coastline. However, there are more castles in Ireland, while Scotland arguably has more diverse scenery, such as charming islands.
There are so many lively cities and stunning landscapes to discover when you visit Ireland. From the buzzing capital, Dublin, to the windswept Atlantic coast, there’s plenty of fun experiences and breathtaking sights awaiting you in the Emerald Isle.
We highly recommend that you drive the Wild Atlantic Way to take in the gems of Ireland’s west coast. You’d get to see some of the country’s top attractions, like the Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry and Slieve League cliffs along this beautiful route.
Of course, you can drive sections of the Wild Atlantic Way rather than the full 2,600-kilometre (1,616-mile) journey!
Here are the top places to visit on holiday in Ireland:
- Cliffs of Moher
- Ring of Kerry
- Killarney National Park
- Aran Islands
- Connemara National Park
- The Burren
- Slieve League cliffs
- County Donegal

You’ll be pleased to know that Ireland is a year-round destination, with many attractions open throughout the seasons. No matter the weather, you’ll fall for the country’s rugged scenery, even in winter.
However, if you’re looking to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, you may prefer to visit Ireland in summer. This time of year offers the best conditions for exploring, as you get more hours of daylight and milder weather compared to the winter.
Like in the UK, June, July and August are summer months in Ireland. These tend to be the best for weather, although do bear in mind that it is the most popular time of year for holidaymakers to Ireland.
You might consider visiting in the spring (April and May) or the early autumn (September and October) to avoid the peak travel period. You’d still be able to make the most of fairly long days and mild weather.
Keen to experience St Patrick’s Day in Ireland? This celebration of Irish culture takes place in March. However, you don’t need to visit in March to soak up the famous Irish nightlife. You’ll be able to enjoy this all year round!

This includes handpicked accommodation, daily breakfast, car rental and insurance, a private transfer from the airport upon arrival, and 24/7 support.
