Alright, we know we don’t need to tell you that Ireland is one gorgeous country. Sweeping landscapes, jagged rock, and lush, flowing greenery are all hallmarks of Ireland. With seven days to work with, we had to decide where we were going to go and what we were going to do in the southern part of Ireland. Trip planning is always an exciting time but also a pain. Here, we’ve narrowed it down to what we think are the best things to see on an Ireland road trip.

Our trip through our interpretation of southern Ireland was stunningly beautiful, not only in landscapes but also in its culture, people, wildlife and of course the delicious food. If we had to pick, these are our top ten reasons why you have to plan an road trip through Ireland.


· Where to Stay – Out of all of the incredible and unique stays in Ireland, we have to say our first at Newlands Lodge was full of character, charm, and amazing hospitality just outside of Kilkenny. Use hotel discount codes or get Genius 2 tier with Booking.
· Car Rentals – Rent a car to get around the narrow roads. Save the most money through car rental coupon codes and book with RentalCars and Discover Cars to find the best deals.
· Activities – Most of the tours/attractions we did were those that needed to be booked through the site specific website ahead of time. If time allows check out additional tours through GetYourGuide or Viator.
· Flights – Try out the Skyscanner “Everywhere” feature to find the best deals.
· Insurance – Make sure you’re covered for all of your adventure activities with the best travel insurance.
· Hottest Deals – Bookmark our frequently updated travel deals page.
