The Emerald Isle is a wonderful place. Wherever you choose, be it the north or south, the east or the west, you'll be more than satisfied. Historic towns and cities, traditional villages, a stunning coastline and beautiful landscape, warm and friendly people, together ensure you'll enjoy your visit. As the island is so close, it is the perfect destination for a short break and there are regular low cost flights from many regional airports. In addition, there are several ferry services, ideal if you wish to tour in your own car. Although cheap Ireland holidays can be taken at any time, one of the most popular dates is the seventeenth of March, St.Patrick's Day when the whole nation celebrates.
