    Cheap City Break - Ireland

    Have you ever read 'Around Ireland with a Fridge' by Tony Hawks? For those who haven't, I'll summarise: Tony Hawks was drinking with a friend one night when he found himself making a bet that he could hitchhike around the circumference of Ireland, with a fridge, in just one month. Certainly a mad bet but Tony was, and is, convinced that Ireland is a magical place where people are more than usually friendly and helpful. What's more, he did it! Where else could that happen?

    The book is funny and heart-warming, just like Ireland itself. A small country with a big history, Ireland sits west of mainland UK across the Irish Sea. The population is relatively small, just around 4 million, but what a population it is. As the Lonely Planet guide-book says, 'Someone will stop and help you find your way when you're standing on a corner gawking at a map; you will strike up a conversation if you're sitting alone in a pub; and there is a very good chance that if you're stuck somewhere a local will volunteer a lift to wherever you need to go.'

    That's one of the reasons why we love Ireland. And another, on a more practical note, is that it is a very short hop from England making it a great weekend break destination. Choose from one of the five international airports, or travel across by sea, and then get yourself onto the open road to catch beautiful views and magical moments. Just don't forget your brolly and sunglasses as Ireland is also famed for its ever-changing weather and the chance to experience four seasons in one day is quite usual.

    The question, What's on in Ireland? constantly comes to mind because you can catch international events such as the world famous Volvo Ocean Race or simply relax and make merry with the locals. The fact that this small country boasts ten Nobel prize winners, four of which are for literature, is testament to its rich culture and the annual calendar is awash with high calibre local literary and music festivals for you to enjoy.

    So, if you haven't already been to Ireland, our only question is - what are you waiting for?
