President's Pick by David Craig - Emerald Isle

Post date: Author:

With summer quickly fading in our memories, it is a great time to be thinking about next year and looking forward to the coming green season. And nowhere is this more relevant than in Ireland, the Emerald Isle, and the destination that reminds me most of lush greens, wonderful coastlines, quaint villages, wonderful friendly faces and, of course, the local pub – the centre of the Irish social life.

Next year we are seeing more interest and more flights to Ireland than ever before. And could there be a better way to put the blahs of the coming long horrible winter behind us than anticipating a journey to this ever so enchanting destination.

One of our most popular and endearing adventures, the Best of Ireland really does offer the best of the Emerald Isle. From north to south and from east to west, we explore all that Ireland has to offer. Historic Belfast and the gracious beauty of Downpatrick leads us north to the Beautiful Glens of Antrim with their rolling hills and dramatic views of the sea. The Giants Causeway is a natural wonder that one really must experience to appreciate.

Continuing around the coast brings us to the west coast, the rugged beauty that is only matched by the spectacular landscapes and scenery of the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle Peninsula and the inspiring Ring of Kerry, certainly one of my most favourite drives in all the world. Each day in this marvelous journey provides new and different visions and opportunities to enjoy the Irish in their backyards.

And for 2018 our Best of Ireland Adventure has been enhanced with a number of new features:

- Homemade Irish treats on our first day as we head north to Belfast.
- Enjoy genuine local Irish pot still whiskey
- More time to explore the Wild Atlantic Way
- A Day Trip to an offshore island
- Overnight at the five star Lyrath Estate

We have kept all the features that you have always enjoyed on our Irish journey and the level of service that ensure you can truly experience the Best of Ireland. 

This is an island not to be rushed and certainly having two or three nights in each of our carefully selected hotels ensures a most comfortable pace. Combined with two hearty meals on most days, you are free to enjoy the island without having a care in the world.
