Going off the beaten track is a must

Usually when you visit somewhere new you want to see the ‘must-see’ sights, but to really experience the island of Ireland, you’ve just got to get off the beaten track. When you do, you’ll find that getting lost can lead to the best discoveries!

Avoid the clichés and do the things you can ONLY do in Ireland
Did you know we have gorgeous beaches, but you never have to jostle for space. That we love a good party – and the calendar is a year round affair? Or that pubs often multitask – ”We wine you, dine you and bury you,” boasts McCarthy’s pub in Fethard, County Tipperary, as it’s an undertaker, too!

Some things need a little explaining
The English language is spoken on the island of Ireland, but certain phrases may confuse people: “Having the craic” means having fun; and if you’re asked “what’s the story” they just want to know if you have any news. And, of course, everything is said with a smile… so make sure to smile back.

The food is amazing
Speaking of food, Ireland’s food scene has undergone a revolution in recent years. With a new wave of cutting-edge chefs, passionate producers and craft distillers experimenting and pushing boundaries, Ireland is bursting with flavour. Our traditional dishes still have pride of place, but are now delivered with a twist. And you can expect everything you eat to have been locally sourced and prepared with love. So take a seat at the table and sample Ireland’s delicious dishes!
