Luxury accommodation

A wide range of luxurious hotels ranging from 5* Castles & Manor Hotels to stylish boutique hotels.

Amazing venues

From beautiful historic gala dinner venues to state-of-the-art conference / convention facilities.

Easy access

Located on the edge of Europe and less than six hours from the east coast of the United States, we’re easy to get to, easy-going, and most importantly, easy to do business with. Only two hours from many mainland European capitals and 50 minutes from London, access to Ireland is a breeze from most parts of the world.

Warm & friendly people

In Ireland there is a phrase, “céad míle fáilte”, that we use when greeting people. Over time, “the land of a thousand welcomes” became a sort of synonym for Ireland, seemingly because anyone who visited would be captivated by the welcoming attitude of the Irish people towards foreign visitors.

Fantastic food & service

Traditional & modern Irish food, such as Irish stew and fresh seafood platters. The country is riding a wave of culinary creativity, one that’s rooted in generations of farmers, fishermen and artisan producers. Across the country, the ethos is small, local and personal when it comes to growing, cooking and dining.
