Ireland can be exceptional all year round, but each season brings its own characteristics. For the best weather, travelling in the high season is a must. The period from June to September, for instance, sees less rain and warmer days. Hotels tend to reach peak prices, and major areas like Dublin can swell. The shoulder seasons in late spring and early autumn can be equally alluring. You'll lose the summer crowds and may be blessed by warm Indian summers. Winter is the low season. While the landscape can be captivating, rural attractions close or see reduced hours. Be prepared for harsh hiking conditions in the wet and windy countryside. Winter travellers will get more from city escapes during this period.
Ireland is bursting with captivating attractions and sights to allure all ages. With its wild and glittering shores, especially along the Atlantic Way, Ireland is the ultimate romantic getaway. What's more, there are plenty of bucolic areas with quaint tearooms for a lazy afternoon. Enjoy prized dining overlooking moody mountains with roaring fires and good company. As for groups, families and friends will find much to do. Ireland is an outdoor enthusiasts dream. You can enjoy everything from strenuous hikes to horse riding and sailing. What's more, with bustling pubs and urban centres like Dublin, you're guaranteed a memorable night.

Ireland is a dream to travel in. Most visitors arrive via one of the international airports, especially those in Dublin and Belfast. Ireland does have domestic air travel too, which can be useful when covering large distances. There are also several ferry port entry points with connections to the UK and Europe. Once you've arrived in Ireland, you'll find public transport is ideal for localised travel. However, a rental car is required if you truly want to explore the broader country at your own pace. Ireland boasts many renowned driving trails that are well sign-posted, including the magnificent Ring of Kerry.
