Travel

For a small country, Ireland offers an enormous diversity of landscapes: from long sandy beaches to rugged coastline; from bogland plains to the dramatic cliffs of the West coast, with much more in between! The environment provides endless opportunities for outdoor leisure pursuits including water sports, hill walking and rock climbing.

Irish Sea

Cities, towns and villages in Ireland also afford boundless opportunities for relaxation and recreation including clubs, restaurants, museums, art galleries, craft exhibitions, indoor sports facilities and music and arts festivals. Festivals are held throughout the year all over the country and are wonderful opportunity to sample some Irish culture whilst getting to know different parts of the island.

Because of its size, travel within Ireland is relatively easy. CIE (Coras Iompair Eireann)  the national transport service  operates trains, buses and coaches throughout the country. Irish Rail (Ianrod Eireann) operates the nationwide rail services, the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) and other suburban rail services. Private coach and bus services are also available.
