About Ireland


Ireland is a fisherman's paradise - the rivers and lakes are well-stocked with salmon, pike and perch. At the same time, inland, golfers love the immaculate greens and challengers of championship golf courses before relaxing at the 19th hole. Take your bikes to find the hidden treasures of rural villages and small waterside towns which line the waterways - historic castles, grand houses, beautiful parks and ancient monastic settlements are yours to discover.

Everywhere you go, you can be sure of receiving a warm welcome - from the friendly lock and shopkeepers to the locals in Ireland's award-winning restaurants and pubs, where lively evenings of song and dance will keep you entertained. Both on and off the water, we are sure you will find that Ireland has all the ingredients for a perfect holiday.
