Fill your clients’ hearts with Ireland

Known for its endless possibilities, Ireland is an island that can be as wild as the wave-lashed coastline on the most remote reaches of the Causeway Coastal Route, or as gentle as the softly swaying riverbanks of the Hidden Heartlands.

It’s an island that feels tailor-made for adventure, whether you’re climbing the stone steps of a 12th-century tower or enjoying the briny tang of fresh oysters by the Atlantic waters.

It’s also an island that never fails to wrap itself around your heart with its toe-tapping traditional music, rich literary heritage and cozy, fire-lit pubs.

Amazing memories

The truth is that in Ireland, you’re never far from a memory in the making. There’s the endless drama of the Wild Atlantic Way – a coastline that stretches from the wind-whipped tip of Malin Head in County Donegal to the cosmopolitan harbour of Kinsale in County Cork.

There’s Ireland’s Ancient East, a mesmerising wonderland of prehistoric monuments, fairytale castles and fascinating stories. And there’s Northern Ireland, which thrills with epic coastlines, and moves you with tales of the Titanic, built in Belfast.

A legendary welcome

Ireland’s spirit can’t be captured – it has to be experienced. It’s the feeling you get listening to a story told by the fire in a time-worn old pub. It’s the witty sense of humour that fizzes through Dublin and the moments of connection in small little villages.

And, it’s true: the people of Ireland are said to be among the friendliest in the world!
