Ireland: flavour of the month for the Royals!

The Royals are in love with Ireland, with top-ranking members visiting this week and next month.

Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall visit Cork and Kerry this week, arriving Thursday 14th for a three-night stay. During their visit they will discover Cork’s historic market and maritime heritage plus the beautiful Lakes of Killarney.

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to visit Dublin on 13 July. It’s a first visit to Ireland for Harry, though Meghan attended a ‘One Young World’ summit in Ireland in 2014.

The Royals are not the only people visiting Ireland this year. The Irish Tourism Industry Confederation reports global visitors up by 7%, while Irish Ferries has reported a 2.4% increase in the number of cars carried this year so far.

Travel from Holyhead or Pembroke with Irish Ferries from as little as £213 return for a car and two adults.

Alternatively, Irish Ferries Holidays has a range of touring itineraries starting at £844 per couple for a five-night break that includes first and last night in Dublin, and three nights in County Kerry. The package includes ferry crossings for car and two people, and twin-share hotel accommodation on a B&B basis.
