Roving I Find: Ireland at its Best

It doesn't get better than summer in Ireland. Warmer, sunnier weather, extremely long days (it's not dark until after 10:00 pm in most of the country), festivals with fresh, seasonal foods and the simple joy of discovering something wonderful at every turn, make every summer day in Ireland nothing short of enchanting. Ireland definitely had us under its magic spell last July. I think it still does.

The Find:
Green Earth Travel does an amazing job putting together affordable, Irish vacations for every kind of traveler. (We booked their Ireland B&B package last year.) But since I'm the kind of traveler who enjoys really nice things at phenomenal prices, this package caught my eye:

The Ireland Ultimate Luxury Package: 

  • RT air from JFK (slightly more from other airports)
  • Rental car with unlimited miles
  • 6 nights in five-star accommodations in Dublin, Galway and Killarney and one-night at the grand Ritz Carlton Powerscourt* in Enniskerry (near Dublin)
When you add in the stunning sites and the unforgettable Irish charm - from the people, to the villages, to the ancient sites, you get an incredible week-long vacation for two for around $3,000 USD. That's a true travel bargain gem.

*We were lucky enough to stay one night at the Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt last year and were absolutely enamoured with the scenery, service and features of this hotel. It was a wonderfully elegant way to end our stay in this charming country.
