Ireland — Those seeking an Ireland vacation can expect warm Gaelic hospitality, a beautiful countryside saturated with every imaginable shade of green, underrated traditional Irish food and drink, great music and theater, and a tangible sense of the country’s rich and turbulent history. The nation is now finding its feet after its recent economic boom (a.k.a. The Celtic Tiger) was followed by the current downturn, but this has not dampened the Irish charm and hospitality that you’ll find in every corner of the country.

Why Go

For Guinness, market towns, rolling hills, quaint villages, dramatic seascapes, and the love of craic (good times).

“On an open-seating flight, head for the back of the airplane. If the flight's not full, it'll likely be emptier back there.”
