Honeymoons in Ireland
If you’re looking for a truly wonderful destination to spend your honeymoon but you don’t want to travel too far from home, then why not considering spending your honeymoon in Ireland. Also known as the Emerald Isle, Ireland is full of charm, character, history and spectacular coastal views. Ireland is only an hour flight away from the UK and travelling by car on the ferry makes it even easier when it comes to having an adventure or road trip style honeymoon. Spending your honeymoon in Ireland will provide you both with fond memories for the whole of your married life. Consider planning a full trip around the country to experience everything that you possibly can on your first holiday as husband and wife.
There’s never a dull moment in Ireland. The vibrant, cultural city of Dublin is the perfect location for a romantic city start to your honeymoon. Walk hand in hand over the Ha’penny Bridge before visiting the famous Guinness factory for a guided tour. The shopping on Grafton Street is fantastic, the restaurants and night life are fun and the hotels are top notch. After a short stay in Dublin why not travel around the country in style. Hire a car or drive your own car over from the UK via ferry. Driving across Ireland you’ll come across wonderful destinations on your honeymoon and a trip to see the Cliffs of Moher in Country Clare is a must. The towns of Galway, Cork, Waterford and Kilkenny are also really lovely and why not conclude your honeymoon with a kiss on the famous Blarney Stone.
