With its magnificent scenery and abundance of historical sites, Ireland is a wonderful trip for all ages. We have rounded up some of the best activities to inspire a trip to the Emerald Isle. Keep reading to check them out!
SAMPLE WHISKEY AND BEER
Beer lovers will want to make a stop at the Guinness Storehouse*, but don’t forget about tasting the wonderful Irish whiskey. You can take tours of both famous distilleries like Jameson Irish Whiskey and smaller off-the beaten-path ones too. Pop into a pub as well to chat with locals and listen to music.
If learning to fly a hawk is on your bucket list, then a hawk walk could possibly be the best memory of your trip. The hawks will take off, fly around, and land right back on your hand. This is an amazing experience for all ages.
SEE SHEEP DOGS IN ACTION
You will see sheep, sheep, and more sheep during your Irish visit. And, that means you will see magnificent border collies herding the sheep too. Make time to visit a local sheep farm and watch in awe during a sheep dog demonstration. You’ll also have a chance to chat with the local farmers and hear their stories.
SLEEP IN A BREATHTAKING CASTLE
Spend a few nights in a castle and imagine what it was like to live in the 11th century. Enjoy perks at some of the best castles in Ireland simply because you’re a FROSCH client!
STROLL THE STREETS OF A MEDIEVAL CITY
Go back in time and walk the cobble-stoned pathways of towns like Kilkenny. A visit to the ancient Kilkenny Castle along with the remarkable churches and monasteries will take your breath away.
DELIGHT IN SCENIC DRIVES WITH A PRIVATE DRIVER
A highlight for many travelers to Ireland is the Ring of Kerry drive along the Wild Atlantic Way. Driving this route on your own is doable, but the very best way to see it is with a private driver. Frosch’s special contacts in Ireland allow you access to some of the best driver guides in the country. And, you might be surprised with the cost. It’s more affordable than you think!
MARVEL AT HISTORICAL SITES
For history buffs, a visit to the Rock of Cashel will not disappoint. Nature lovers will love the scenic view from the top as well.
HIKE IN KILLARNEY PARK, OF COURSE!
Well, this is a no-brainer, don’t you think?
With so much to do, these 8 activities are only a small sampling of the possibilities in Ireland. But, one thing’s for sure, Ireland should be on everyone’s ‘Travel To-Do’ list.
