Going on vacation is something that many people look forward to. Many people even consider taking their vacation time an important part of maintaining a healthy work life balance, and more than 90% of all employees throughout the country value their vacation time quite immensely. And family vacations are also hugely popular, with more than 35% of all families in the United States alone enjoying vacation time together, meaning that taking vacations is the number one most well liked family activity in this country.
Of course, there are a number of considerations to be made when planning a vacation. For one thing, taking the proper amount of time to plan it is a must, as a well planned vacation is likely to be much more enjoyable and to provide a much better overall experience than one that is simply thrown together at the very last minute. Planning a vacation will consider everything from the dates you will take your vacation on to the overall cost of your vacation – and the additional expenses that might be accrued while you are on it as well.
The place you choose to vacation factors in hugely to this planning process, as it will influence how much money you spend as well as your overall experience on this trip. Finding the perfect place to travel to is therefore quite important indeed. For many people, this perfect vacation destination is the country of Ireland. Ireland is a country with a long history and many descendants currently living in the United States. As of recently gathered data (dating back to the year of 2011, to be just a bit more specific), more than four and a half million people were living on the small island, meaning that it has a population ranking 119th in the world (according to another set of data that was gathered back in the year of 2013).
There are many things to do in Ireland, such as visiting its cities. The city of Dublin is by far the largest, and currently has very nearly a half of a million residents. There is much to do in Dublin, from attending local pubs to sporting events – or, as will likely be the case for many, some of both. But visiting the cities that Ireland has to offer is not the only activity that you can partake in during your trip to the country.
In addition to this, going on luxury custom tours is popular. As the name “luxury custom tours” implies, these luxury custom tours come in all shapes and sizes. For instance, Celtic tours often fall under the classification of luxury custom tours and are widely regarded as being quite a good way to get a better sense of Ireland’s history. In addition to Celtic tours, other types of luxury custom tours include castle tours in Ireland as well as castle tours in Scotland, as both islands are quite filled with old castle ruins and the like. For people visiting from the United States, a country that is still relatively new in the grand scheme of things, such immense historical structures can be certainly quite amazing to see. Many people even feel that these luxury custom tours and tours through other tour options are very much the highlight of the trip.
Once you’re done with the luxury custom tours, you might decide to check out some of the stark natural beauty that Ireland also has to offer its visitors. This beauty is not to be underestimated, as the cliffs that Ireland boasts alone the coastline and both rugged and dramatic as much as they are breathtaking. Visiting the cliffs and looking out onto the sea is something that many a traveler has enjoyed doing – and something the surely many more will continue to enjoy in the future and for truly many years to come.
If you’re considering taking a vacation in the near future, consider a vacation to Ireland. From the luxury custom tours to the natural beauty to the thriving cities, there is so much to do in this country, and countless places to explore. For many different people, Ireland is quite the ideal place to visit indeed.
