Dublin is both the largest city and capital of Ireland. It is located near the midpoint of Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey and at the centre of the Dublin Region. Founded as a Viking settlement, the city has been Ireland's primary city for most of the island's history since medieval times. Today, it is an economic, administrative and cultural centre for the island of Ireland and has one of the fastest growing populations of any European capital city. The city has a world-famous literary history, having produced many prominent literary figures, including Nobel laureates William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw and Samuel Beckett. Other influential writers and playwrights from Dublin include Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift and the creator of Dracula, Bram Stoker. It is ar...read more
The Wicklow Mountains are a range of mountains in the southeast of Ireland. They run in a north-south direction from south County Dublin across County Wicklow and into County Wexford. Lugnaquilla is the highest peak in the range at 925 m (3035 ft), Mullaghcleevaun at 847 m (2,780 ft) is the second highest, while the summit of Kippure is the highest point in County Dublin, at 757 m (2,484 ft). The River Slaney has its source southwest of Lugnaquilla and then flows south along the western slopes of the mountains for some 72 km (45 mi) before entering the St George's Channel at Wexford. The Turlough Hill power station is the only pumped storage hydroelectricity scheme in Ireland; it is located on the Wicklow Gap midway between Hollywood and Glendalough. The whole area is much freque...read more
The Irish National Stud (official name: Colucht Groighe Naisiunta na hÉireann Teo (The Irish National Stud Co. Ltd)) is a horse breeding facility based at Tully, Kildare, County Kildare, Ireland. It was formally established by incorporation on 11 April 1946 under the National Stud Act, 1945 and is owned by the Irish Government. The lands around Tully have been associated with the breeding of horses since about 1300, when it is likely that war horses were bred here for the Knights of Malta. However, the first record of the setting up of a stud farm is in 1900, when the lands were purchased from a local farmer James Fay, by Colonel William Hall-Walker, who later became Lord Wavertree. As 'Willie' Walker approached middle age, he turned his attention to the owning and breeding...read more
The Cliffs of Moher (Irish: Aillte an Mhothair, lit. cliffs of the ruin, also known as the Cliffs of Coher from the Irish: Mhothair) are located in the parish of Liscannor at the south-western edge of The Burren area near Doolin, which is located in County Clare, Ireland. The cliffs rise 120 meters (394 ft) above the Atlantic Ocean at Hag's Head, and reach their maximum height of 214 meters (702 ft) just north of O'Brien's Tower, eight kilometres away. The cliffs boast one of Ireland's most spectacular views. On a clear day the Aran Islands are visible in Galway Bay, as are the valleys and hills of Connemara. O'Brien's Tower is a round stone tower at the approximate midpoint of the cliffs. It was built by Sir Cornelius O'Brien, a descendant of Ireland's High King Brian Boru, in 18...read more
Ashford Castle, surrounded by the immense lawns and beautiful forests of its 350 acre private estate, overlooking the sparkling waters and picturesque islands of Lough Corrib, is so grand, so beautiful, and so magical, that it is hard to believe your imagination is not playing tricks on you. Yet real it is. In the 13th century a monastery stood on this site, but this was replaced by a castle which became the home of the Guinness brewing family in 1715. They massively extended the house and estate over the next two hundred years and in 1939 it became one of Ireland’s most impressive and renowned hotels. The splendour of the setting and the exterior is more than matched by the lavishly decorated interiors. These boast ornate fireplaces, wood panelled walls, vaulted ceilings, crystal chandeliers and huge staircases, as well as rich fabrics and antique furnishings loving accumulated over hundreds of years by those with excellent taste and deep pockets. Not surprisingly it is regarded as one of the most magical wedding venues in all Ireland. Guests dine in the George V Restaurant, built by the Guinness family to host the Prince of Wales in 1906. This is one of the premiere Castle Restaurants in Ireland, graced by the exquisite cuisine of Chef Stefan Matz. More informal dining is provided in Cullen’s Cottage Restaurant beside the river that runs through the estate, or in the castle’s atmospheric dungeons. The Drawing Room also serves light meals and snacks during the day, as well as a magnificent traditional Afternoon Tea. The Prince of Wales bar, also created for the visit of the heir to the English throne, makes a wonderful setting for a relaxing drink. Given the castle’s previous owners the signature cocktail is Black Velvet – equal parts of Champagne and Guinness. Each of the castle’s 83 rooms and suites is individually designed, some with four poster beds, open fireplaces and claw foot bath tubs. Many of the original features have been preserved but all are equipped with modern amenities including Wi-Fi and interactive TV. Because the castle was for so long the private estate of wealthy families who loved their hunting, shooting and fishing guests enjoy a brilliant choice of activities. There’s some of the best salmon, trout and pike fishing in all Ireland, as well as a splendidly equipped falconry and equestrian centre. Golfers can play the estate’s 9-hole parkland course and the castle is within easy reach of some of the world’s finest link...read more
Connemara, or Ballyconneely Golf Club, as it is also known, is located between the Twelve Bens Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, in one of the most splendid settings imaginable.

Originally opened as an 18 hole venue, Connemara Golf Links has offered 27 holes of sublime links golf since 2001. The course was designed by renowned Irish course architect, Eddie Hackett and completed by Tom Craddock. And while Connemara Golf Club may be located on one of Ireland most westerly tips, make no mistake that it is worth the trip. Like the many other great links of the west and northwest, Connemara remains a largely underplayed (if n...read more
First I would like to say thank you so very much for booking us an amazing vacation. Jess and I loved the trip and I can speak for the both of us when I say that we want to come back.
The trip from Dublin to Waterford along the coast was beautiful and we took the scenic route.
The next day we went to the crystal factory. After more scenic driving we arrived at our destination in Killarney. The Doyle's were great people, really friendly and accommodating.
Then came the drive to the Cliffs of Moher which was a tour in itself.The Cliffs did not disappoint and again the weather cooperated as we could see the Aren Islands.
The Lodge in Connemara was the most accommodating stay I have ever had in my life.
All in all I would really like to thank you for making our honeymoon a fantastic and unforgetable experience. Your operations at Irish Tourism are top notch and I would recommend your services to anyone.
