Summer Travel Destinations | Ireland

With the official start to summer on 21st June, many people are turning their thoughts to summer holiday destinations and travel planning. If you need some travel inspiration for this summer, over the next few weeks we’re revealing some superb summer holiday destinations.

Ireland, also known as The Emerald Isle thanks to its verdant, green countryside, is an excellent summer holiday destination for those who want plenty to see, do and experience from their trip. With stunning landscapes, a wonderfully vibrant capital city and plenty of history and museums, Ireland can be the ideal place for a family holiday.

Drive the Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way is a road stretching for more than 1,500 miles on the west, north and south coasts of Ireland. The Wild Atlantic Way is the longest coastal road in the world and passes through nine different counties and three provinces along the way. It showcases some of Ireland’s most spectacular scenery that will truly take your breath away.

Driving the Wild Atlantic Way, whether all of part of it, will see you pass through small villages and hamlets, towns full of life, past soaring cliffs and by adorable bays and deserted beaches. Along the way, you’ll be able to stop off and sample some fresh seafood, caught earlier that day in the Atlantic. It doesn’t get much fresher than that.

Driving the Wild Atlantic Way in summer will allow you to enjoy more of the scenery during the long, light days, and you should experience the best of the weather, with warmer temperatures and fewer days of rain than at other times of the year.

Delightful Dublin

Ireland’s capital city, Dublin, is one of the most popular destinations that Chapman Freeborn charter private jets to, and for good reason. The city is filled with beautiful historic buildings, exciting museums and galleries, bustling nightlife and some great restaurants and bars. The city also has some first-class luxury hotels if you’re looking for a bit of rest and relaxation in comfortable surroundings.

Stay active

Ireland is a fantastic destination for those who like to have an active holiday. There are walking, hiking, running and cycling routes all across the country, with County Donegal being a favourite for many. This can be a great way to get out and about to soak in Ireland’s famous scenery in all its glory.

Surfing is also a popular activity for many visitors to Ireland. The country has more than 3,000 kilometres of coastline and there are perfect surf spots around. Bundoran in Donegal is known as the surf capital of Ireland, with several surfing schools and an abundance of places to try out the surf.

Let Chapman Freeborn transport you to Ireland by private jet charter this summer. Dublin is one of the most popular destinations in Ireland that we charter private jets to and from, however, we would be delighted to organise private jet charter into or out of any of the airports across Ireland.
