Flights to Ireland

Cheap student flights to Ireland

Top reasons to visit Ireland: having a pint of Guinness in the heart of Dublin, authentic shepherd's pie, the craic (Irish fun), breathtaking rolling hills and oceanside cliffs, the best cup of tea you'll ever have (don't tell England) and, most importantly, the chance of hearing Ed Sheeran's 'Galway Girl' in a Galway pub. Tbh nothing could beat that.

Don't make the mistake of overlooking Ireland as a top European destination. It's in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean giving you rocky shore views that will leave you in awe. Nearly every major city is only an hour away from the stunning Atlantic scenery. Outdoor enthusiasts will be in heaven while walking some of Ireland's top scenic trails complete with its famous green hills and impressive castles. If you're lucky, you'll spot a rainbow! Finding a pot of gold is TBD.

If there's one thing Ireland isn't lacking in, it's fun. Famous for its pubs and wide array of beverage options, you'll be saying "Sláinte" with friendly locals in no time. Grab a relaxing afternoon pint over lunch at one of the many pubs explore hip cafes and meander through the cobbled streets that reverberate with the sound of buskers, and then hit Dublin's famous street, Temple Bar for clubs, DJs and dancing.

Getting around Ireland: If you're spending the majority of your time in rural Ireland, you may want to consider renting a car.

Once you add cattle crossing traffic into the mix (yes, that really happens) you'll realize driving in Ireland is just as adventurous as sightseeing. If you're spending your time in the urban centers of Ireland, such as Dublin, Cork or Galway, using public transportation is simple. There are buses, trains and trams available to your liking!

Things to do in Ireland: When you're visiting Ireland, there are just some things that you have to do—like visiting the Cliffs of Moher. Ireland's most visited natural attraction is less than two hours away from Galway and these magical seaside cliffs are worth the journey. Keep your eye out for whale sharks and seals while snapping pics for Insta! If you're closer to Cork, take a visit to Blarney Castle instead. This castle dates back to 1200, and if you visit you can kiss the famous Blarney Stone to get the gift of eloquence. What more could you need?! If you're in Dublin, you need to visit the city's heart and soul: the Guinness Storehouse. This brewery is home to the 'black stuff', and what better place to have a pint of Guinness than Dublin? After your tour, check out Dublin's most famous street, Temple Bar. This cobblestone street is lined with all sorts of pubs, restaurants and music and is definitely one of the best places to visit in Ireland.
