Start planning that long-awaited trip to the island of Ireland. With all travel restrictions now lifted, there has never been a better time to visit.

1. The craic (fun) is back!

There is a buzz in Ireland’s towns and cities again, laughter in the streets and music in the air. And what perfect timing as spring begins to appear. Get ready to experience Ireland’s world-famous hospitality, the welcome is warmer than ever.

2. Take to the open road

Wind along the 1,500-mile Wild Atlantic Way and explore the wonders of Ireland’s western coastline, from Kinsale’s world-class restaurants to the spectacular Ring of Kerry and the enchanting expanse of Connemara. Or head up north, cruise the 120-mile Causeway Coastal Route and take in the magnificent views at Dunluce Castle or brave the Carrick-a-rede Rope bridge.

Mother Nature truly owns the catwalk in Ireland. Savor the stunning landscape with a hike up Croagh Patrick, or a round at Royal Portrush Golf Club; take a dip in the Irish Sea at Dublin’s Forty Foot, or cycle the Waterford Greenway. You won’t find fresher air anywhere else!

You really can’t get any fresher than that!
