You can find B&Bs all throughout Ireland, including Gaeltacht regions such as Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Kerry, Cork and Waterford where you can listen to the Irish language spoken in the B&B home and even pick up a few words yourself. B&B hosts can guide you to a céili and traditional music sessions where you can mix with the locals for the ultimate cultural experience.

Gaelic Football and Hurling

Ireland is home to two of its own unique sports that originated here on the island of Ireland. Gaelic football and hurling matches are unbelievable to watch, with such an exciting and electric atmosphere around the pitch. No matter what level you are watching, be it a local minor match or the All Ireland Championship, you are guaranteed a great day out. These sports bring communities together and any visitor who has watched their first GAA game will tell you that they have been blown away by the sport!

Irish Dancing

Irish dancing is a big part of Irish culture and Ireland’s national identity. There’s barely a family in Ireland who hasn’t had their child attend Irish dancing lessons hoping to produce the next Michael Flatley. The worldwide success of Riverdance really brought Irish dancing to the world’s attention and showed what an amazing and exciting experience it is to be a part of. There’s something magical about seeing Irish dancing performed live, and it is a wonderful cultural experience.
