You'll stay in a mix of friendly bed and breakfasts. You will be sure of a warm Irish welcome everywhere.
It is easy to add extra nights in all of the towns - perhaps you'd like to visit Valencia Island or take a boat trip to the Skellig Islands. Just ask your sales adviser to arrange.
*This holiday is also available as a 4-night Short Break*
All breakfasts included.
Irish food is not exactly famous, but what you will find is extremely good
ingredients used to create basic and classic dishes, both Kerry beef and
Kerry lamb, are certainly well known all over Ireland and further afield. You
will see rack of lamb, lamb stew and shepherd’s pie, in most places. The
county’s other basket is the Atlantic Ocean, and its rivers and loughs. Sea
bream and Sea Bass are popular.Trout and Salmon can be served in many
different ways, and there is an abundance of shell fish, local chowders are
excellent and look out for crab gratin.
Wine is readily available but of course one of the symbols of Ireland is
Guinness, and we can say from experience that it tastes better in Ireland,
but if have a thirst after a long walk, beware the Guinness is not poured
quickly, many might say there is a certain amount of time you need to leave
after filling the glass halfway up the harp. However it should be left until
you see a vivid distinction between the dark body and the creamy white head.
Only then can the rest of the glass be filled. Learning from the locals, you
should order your second pint before you have finished your first!
Craft beer is making a name for itself in Ireland and there are some
excellent local ones. Then there is the Irish whiskey, the famous one being
Bushmills and Jameson’s, and there are many local whiskies for you to try,
the Dingle distillery produces a good whiskey and an excellent gin.
