Majestic Castles of the Emerald Isle
Explore the Emerald Isle. Step back in time and experience the heritage of Irish castles & manor houses, straight from a fairy tale
Ireland is a land full of history and folklore that is as beguiling and enchanting as it is beautiful. From the celebrated Causeway Coast in the North to the dramatic scenery of County Kerry in the South, Ireland is proof positive that you don't have to travel far from home to find some gems.
You will be sure of a warm welcome in any of Ireland's lively cities, each with their own colourful histories and tales to tell. History from the past century is visible in the fearsome Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin and the Titanic Experience in Cobh, whilst in Cashel you will see the amazing ruins of the island's rich monastic past.
Those who wish to become as eloquent as one of Ireland's literary greats won't want to miss out on a chance to the kiss the Blarney stone at the famous castle in Cork and a trip to the Dublin Writer's Museum may inspire you to pen your own Ode to this Emerald Isle.
