Many of you may wonder what the advantages are of traveling late in the season or traveling during off-peak season….well the main answer is The Price! What Unbelievable Value there is to be had!
But that is not the only reason, despite being a great one!
Another reason is The Choice! As hotels, castles and Bed & Breakfast accommodations are less busy from October to March, not only will they be delighted to offer great rates, you will also have no issue with getting a room there and also you get the best rooms available! The chances of being upgraded to a presidential suite, as often happens with Journey Through Ireland clients are hugely increased!
Next we come to Ease of Travel. As children are back at school from September onwards, the majority of families have already done their holidaying which leaves the more popular tourist sites and attractions less crowded and easy to get around. There are no queues and it is much more peaceful and serene when taking in the stunning views of the Cliffs of Moher or the beautiful Ring of Kerry. Everywhere takes less time to get around which means much more time for enjoying yourself.
Finally, did you realize just how many Festivals are run in Ireland over the Autumn period alone? Let us list some for you:
There is everything from the Dublin Theatre Festival to Culture Night, the Bram Stoker Festival, the Ulster Bank Belfast International Arts Festival, Wexford Festival Opera, Savour Kilkenny Food Festival, the Banks of the Foyle Hallowe’en Carnival, The Outing, the Cork Jazz Festival, the Galway International Oyster and Seafood Festival, the Belfast Comedy Festival and Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival. Also not forgetting that Yeats2015 and ID2015 (the year of Irish design) are still being strongly promoted by their governing bodies.
I hope that the above has helped highlight the advantages of travelling to Ireland from October – March. To celebrate these advantages, Journey Through Ireland have a special offer on self-drive tours. For your accommodation, car rental and inclusive car rental insurance, along with Journey Through Ireland’s itinerary planning and booking services, the cost is only $58.00 pps per day for a 6-day trip or more.
