Kim and Kanye honeymoon in Ireland… Why is Ireland the perfect honeymoon destination?

Love them or hate them, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s arrival in Ireland has heralded much excitement and speculation about their whereabouts, what activities are they doing every day and why did they choose Ireland of all places to honeymoon!?

As Tour Specialists, we can see why they choose intimate Ireland as the setting for their honeymoon as many of our clients choose to do the same. We may have stiff competition with locations such as Paris and Rome regularly being bestowed with ‘the most romantic location in the World’ accolade but Ireland’s 32 Counties collectively offer something that ‘pips them all at the post’. The authentic, raw, rugged charm that Ireland is famed for is something entirely different to the over-commercialisation often experienced in other romantic locations throughout the World. We, in Ireland, have not been spared entirely from over-commercialisation either, we are not oblivious to that fact but we are lucky enough to have an abundance of rustic, originality and friendly, welcoming  locals to avoid the pitfall of our Country becoming tarnished as ‘just another tourist trap.’

Romantic Ireland has come to light universally in recent years with films such as P.S. I love you and Leap Year drawing much welcomed attention to our little island. The stunning footage of sprawling, luscious, green fields, the music and ‘craic’ in the pubs, the scenery, the intimate, authentic cottages with open turf fires to cosy up with your loved one after a day of exploring … it is easy to see why so many people fall in love with Ireland and make the decision to conclude their marital celebrations with a dream trip to the Emerald Isle. The best thing about it all? It’s not just ‘make believe’ for a movie, it’s all real and waiting for you to come discover!

We’re sure that the budget for the ‘Kimye’ honeymoon exceeded many people’s annual working salary (x10!) but a dream trip to Ireland can be achieved for a minute fraction of that cost. The majority of your nights can be spent in cosy Bed and Breakfasts, Cottages and Hotels. The standard of regular 3 and 4 star accommodations in Ireland when carefully selected, luckily does not disappoint. Of course, a little luxury is always welcome and Ireland has some stellar 5 star accommodations and Castles to choose from should you decide you want to treat yourselves for one or two nights of your honeymoon trip.

Days are spent exploring, hiking, mountain-biking and strolling hand in hand with your beloved before enjoying wonderfully wholesome cuisine in one of Ireland’s delightful restaurants that evening. The perfect way to finish your day is with some live Traditional Irish Music and a dance with your guy or girl before you retire for the night. This charming, little Country and all it offers is the perfect destination to extend the ecstatic afterglow of a Wedding. Surrounded by some of the friendliest people you will ever meet in the World, what better way to begin your married life than with a honeymoon in Ireland?

What Our Customers Say
This truly was a trip of a lifetime for us. I find myself looking at it and sighing, wishing we could be back there! We couldn’t have asked for a better trip and we’re already planning our return for 2015. The level of personal attention you devoted to every little detail will never be forgotten – we raised many pints of Guinness to Irish Essence Tours and to you Deborah on our trip!

Working with you, Deborah, to create our journey was a pleasure. From the start, you were knowledgeable and returned inquiries in a timely manner. Your insight of Ireland travel also directed us extremely well with our sightseeing choices. It was important to me to be able to speak with a live person. Otherwise, I would not have had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person, an outstanding representative of your company.
─ Franny Kreisberg, New York
