While the recent economic woes and the defeat of the Celtic Tiger might be bad for locals, it has opened up opportunities to travel affordably through Ireland. Prices are lower than they were 5, or even 10 years ago, and the crowds haven’t increased. Now is the time to discover Ireland – and there’s something for everyone!
1. Visit Dublin’s Historic Abbey Theatre: Born of the Gaelic Revival, this legendary venue is now Ireland’s National Theatre, offering world class productions alongside homegrown talent. Search their website to find preview and early bird prices and you can save 50% or more. Learn more about this fine institution.
2. Take Part in A Taste of Dublin: Irish cuisine is so much more than stew and soda bread and A Taste of Dublin lets you really sink your teeth into the new, cosmopolitan flavors of the city. Take advantage Dublin’s fine restaurants, markets, cafes, and microbreweries.
