With a fascinating and rich history, Ireland offers everything from quaint villages and busy cities to areas of natural beauty and plenty of opportunities for wildlife-spotting.
In the capital of Dublin, you can experience something from just about all aspects of city living, such as a buzzing nightlife, historical walking tours, the Old Jameson Distillery for whiskey fans, and art and music trails through the city.
For a more relaxing visit, why not spot whales and dolphins on the Cork Whale Watch, take the children to the Chocolate Garden of Ireland, or be mesmerised by the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark for a peek at the vivid history of Ireland's landscape? One thing you should expect from the Emerald Isle is its greener assets.
Ireland makes a great destination for both short getaways and relaxing weeks spent away from the stresses of daily life. Here, you can choose to sit back and soak up the calmer pace of life in the Irish countryside, or escape to a livelier break in the capital. Make your own adventure – it's only an hour to the Irish capital from Leeds Bradford® Airport!
