The Emerald Isle boasts some of the world's most iconic scenes. The bustling city of Dublin, the Cliffs of Moher, the Blarney Stone and Blarney Castle, Ring of Kerry and the Guinness Storehouse make this country a truly eclectic destination.
By combining flights, accommodation and transfers into an all-inclusive holiday package and visiting during off-peak times and outside of St Patrick's day - you save. If you're travelling from a port city in the UK, you can opt for a cruise ship package as a cheaper option and flying on Tuesdays and Wednesdays is cheaper than on other days of the week.
June, July, August and the weeks before and after St Patrick's Day are crowded. These are also the most expensive times. Outside of these times, flights, hotels, rental car hire and restaurants are cheaper.
