- Ireland All inclusive holidays
Ireland - whether you mean the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland - is a familiar destination for many British holidaymakers, and the capital cities of Belfast and Dublin alone are both excellent options for all-inclusive holidays in Ireland. The north is of course part of the UK, and this means there is no need to change your currency when you visit - just be prepared to receive Irish banknotes in your change if you pay with a larger denomination English note. In the south, the Republic of Ireland has adopted the euro, so if you have currency left from a European break in earlier months, you'll be able to spend that.
A staycation across the sea
There aren't many opportunities to cross a sea without leaving the UK, but Northern Ireland offers one of them, and this alone adds to the appeal of all-inclusive holidays to Ireland, as opposed to Scotland and Wales for instance. Whether you fly to Belfast or take a sedate ferry crossing, the feeling as you catch your first glimpse of its shore is quite unlike catching sight of the beaches of France or Spain - the landscape is rich and green, the coastal communities more industrial in their heritage, and it's a truly unique destination overall.
A border-crossing celebration
The Irish are synonymous all over the world with St Patrick's Day, commonly called Paddy's Day or the less common Patty's Day, and this takes place on March 17th. Unusually on this island of two parts, this is one cultural celebration that crosses the border, and Irish people across the island as a whole, not to mention in countries elsewhere around the globe, will all be raising a glass together for the occasion.
When to take all-inclusive holidays in Ireland
Don't be fooled by the fact that Northern Ireland is part of the UK; it and the neighbouring Republic of Ireland can both get very hot in the height of summer, with temperatures sometimes topping 30°C. There are more typically British weather conditions at times too, but the winters are mostly quite moderate. Spring can be a particularly pleasant time to take cheap all-inclusive Ireland holidays, as the colder winter months give way to warmer and longer days, the landscape springs back into its famously green abundance, and the Emerald Isle comes together for the Feast of St Patrick.
