What’s special about Ireland?

The west coast of Ireland is justly famous for its wild and beautiful landscapes, as well as its exciting birds and fascinating botany.

The rugged Atlantic coastline offers a remarkable variety of coastal landscapes with its mix of cliffs, beaches, bays and estuaries. These attract a huge number and variety of waders, wildfowl and seabirds, together with migrants and rare summer visitors like the Corncrake.

The limestone pavement in the Burren is home to a rich variety of wild flowers and endemic plants.

Among its many charms, Ireland offers friendly people, a relaxed lifestyle, quiet roads, fine food, excellent music and the perfect pint of Guinness at the end of the day – all the ingredients for a first class holiday.

Our Specialist Recommends

"‘The Burren’ in Ireland is home to some unique flora and perhaps the most exciting wildflower destination in the British Isles. Enjoy the great scenery and the limestone pavement which makes this area a natural rock garden."
