Things to do in Ireland

The Emerald Isle is full of wonder and opportunity but if you’re visiting us for the first time you might be thinking – where to begin? Hopefully our suggestions will help inspire your next journey. See you soon…

Visit Your Land

Our first recommendation will always be to visit your plot of Emerald Heritage land of course. Where better to start? Walk on your own piece of Ireland, watch as nature unfurls around you and listen as the wind whispers through the leaves of trees planted by you and your fellow squireens. See and feel your own heritage and the difference you’re making to Ireland.

Causeway Coastal Route

Garron Plateau

If you’re already up in the north of the island then your next stop has to be the 120 miles of the incredible Causeway Coastal Route. Imagine a road trip where each bend in the road brings another panoramic view and each stop nestles you in the arms of a quiet coastal village. Even better, you can continue your journey on to the Wild Atlantic Way and enjoy a land battered, bruised and shaped by the Atlantic Ocean all the way down to Cork!  

Enjoy the Craic!

All this touring is bound to work up and appetite and the Irish are famed worldwide for their hospitality and craic – why not join the fun when you’re here? Take a walk through the Temple Bar area of Dublin to experience the capital city’s cultural hive or step off the beaten track and enjoy a pint of the black stuff in rural Ireland. Can you think of anything better than a bowl of warm vegetable soup or Irish stew by the fire before a pint of stout or dram of whiskey? 

Go to Croke Park

The Irish are sporting fanatics and we’d highly recommend a trip to Croke Park in Dublin to experience the GAA games in all their glory. Almost every town, village and community has a GAA club to their name but Croke Park is their mecca and there’s nowhere better to experience the passion, pride and commitment that the GAA personifies. If you’re lucky enough to grab a ticket for an All-Ireland football or hurling final you won’t be disappointed. 

See Newgrange

While there are hundreds of things to see and do around Ireland one of the highlights has to be Newgrange in County Meath. This ancient temple was built around 3200BC and is older than both Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Egypt! If you’ve ever wanted to reconnect with our ancient ancestors and feel the true weight of history on your shoulders this is a must see. The Winter Solstice is of particular significance as light floods the chamber to celebrate the beginning of a new year.
