Well, the good news is there are many affordable all-inclusive packages which you can choose from. Let’s take a look at one such package.

A typical all-inclusive package can cost approximately $1139 per person, and would include the following: Roundtrip airfare, transfers, six full breakfasts and three dinners. Also included in this fabulous tour are: Dublin, Kildare, Limerick, Cliffs of Moher, Connemara, Rathbaun Farm, Blarney, Ring of Kerry, Killarney, Tipperary, Waterford, a hand-weaving mill at Avoca, and Glendalough.

Among the many sights included are Trinity College, the Irish National Stud, a marble factory, woolen mills, Waterford Crystal factory, and St. Kevins. You may already be writing down what you intend to buy, eh? Waterford Crystal, perhaps? Or perhaps you will be visiting shops to acquire hand-made woolen sweaters, Irish linen or jewelry.

This particular tour package holds a great deal more exciting and historical visits. For example, you will take a drive to Dingle Bay where Ryan’s Daughter was filmed; visit St. John’s Castle and the Rock of Cashel where St. Patrick is said to have preached; St. Mary’s Cathedral and visit a working sheep farm; visit the Blarney Stone (don’t forget to kiss this magical stone!) and the spectacular Cliffs of Moher to view the magnificent view of Clare coast. You will even spend a night at Killarney, a popular resort.

National Archives of Ireland is the place to discover your Irish ancestors; its archives hold a wide variety of records, many of which are relevant to Irish genealogy and local history. It is a 15 minute walk from the National Library taking you through the famous St Stephen's Green. on Kildare Street in Dublin. It is the perfect place to start your research.

With its green rolling hills and lush landscape, you will find the weather to be quite accommodating during the summer months.

Irish cuisine consists of traditional dishes such as Irish stew, fish such as prawns and oysters, and without a doubt the best soda bread found anywhere. Their pubs are lively, the people are friendly, and visiting a few pubs can top off a long and exciting day. Most pubs feature live music and you can relax and stomp your feet as you enjoy a mug of their famous ale.

If you have never been to Ireland, this is the trip of a lifetime. Check out the many online sites wherein you can find dozens and dozens of packages that will fit your budget. Also, give your travel agent a call as well.
