UK & Ireland

Discover rolling hills, fascinating history and lively cities 

A 24hr+ flight is a small price to pay for the experiences you’ll have once you touch down on the other side of the world. With rolling green fields, history in every nook and cranny and lively pubs to keep you entertained, the UK and Ireland is a welcoming part of the world for travellers. 

Hire a car and explore seaside towns and ancient history along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, uncover hidden talent at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival or explore York’s Viking heritage. The more adventurous might like to venture out to the Scottish Isles or Snowdonia National Park in Wales, while city slickers will fall in love with London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin, which offer all the shopping, culture and nightlife you could ask for. 

Our travel consultants can help your explore the UK and Ireland differently by crafting a unique itinerary so you can explore those hidden gems and the places that really pique your interest. Take a look at our UK and Ireland deals below or get in touch for something tailor-made for you.

Tips and advice from our travel advisors

When in Ireland, stay in some bed & breakfasts because they’re more personable. You’ll get to really see the true Ireland.

Kilkenny in Ireland is absolutely beautiful. It’s got really old buildings and lots of beautiful colourful hanging baskets. Avoid the weekends as they’re popular for hens and stag nights!

I would highly recommend doing a road trip through the west coast of Scotland in the Highlands. There are a few Isles in the lower part of the Highlands worth visiting that are accessible via car ferry. If you’re a fan of Harry Potter there are a lot of scenic views through the Highlands where the movies were filmed. Isle of Skye right at the top of the Highlands is absolutely gorgeous and worth the drive, plenty of neat little shops and cosy restaurants.
