Dublin has so much to offer. With its energetic night life, visitor attractions, and shopping, Dublin has few rivals. Steeped in history and alive with energy, the Irish capital is the beating heart of Irish culture. And there's so much more to see in the areas just outside the city.
Given Dublin's rich literary heritage, it's no surprise that Dublin has recently been designated a UNESCO City of Literature. Be sure to take a light hearted 'Literary Pub Crawl' and join in the fun! Irish pub culture is legendary and there's no better place to sample this than in Temple Bar. Dublin's also home to Guinness and at the Guinness Storehouse you can enjoy a pint of 'the black stuff'.

Cork is a county full of colour and contrasts, and is easily one of Ireland's most beautiful counties. From the bustling streets of Cork City, to breathtaking West Cork, the tranquillity of North Cork and the holiday atmosphere of East Cork, there's something for everyone.
Although steeped in history, Cork City is fast gaining a reputation as one of Europe's ‘hippest' cities and has a distinctively continental feel. Head for its urban hub, and you'll be rewarded with an astonishing array of excellent restaurants, chic bars, lively pubs and live music. Foodies will be in good company here because gastronomy is high on the locals' list of priorities. Go along to the English Market, in the city centre since 1788, meet the characters and experience the colours, tastes and flavours.
You won't get through Cork in a single day. There's far too much to see and do. Play your own tune on the Shandon Bells, in the 300 year-old tower of St. Anne's Church, and check out the French Gothic spires of St. Finbarre's Cathedral. Or explore the charming coastal villages and beaches of Ireland's South West.
This is a destination bursting with life and character.
