Ireland’s Ancient East
To access this historic region, first fly into Dublin Airport, a mere 15-minute drive from the city centre. A big city with a small town feel, Dublin is a cultural hub with a vibrant social scene, rich in architectural history and populated by the friendliest people in the world. Within easy reach of this compact metropolis, you’ll find picturesque villages and country houses perfect for off-the-beaten-track corporate meetings, before entering the bounds of Ireland’s Ancient East. Cork City in the south of Ireland, with its international airport, is also a convenient gateway to Ireland’s Ancient East.
When you meet in Ireland's Ancient East, you'll surround your group with 5,000 years of history and ancient landmarks enclosed within the lush landscape. If you seek a room with a view within easy reach of the city, you can find stunning castles and country houses located on sprawling parklands - why not escape the urban surroundings and head for one of many strikingly scenic resort venues?
Wild Atlantic Way
Alternatively, arrive into one of the airports in Cork, Kerry, Shannon or Knock to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, the world’s longest waymarked coastal route. Provide incentive groups with the chance to blow away the cobwebs with surfing or sea kayaking, or get hands-on at a bread-making workshop in a traditional Irish kitchen.
The most memorable meetings and incentives always have a touch of wildness about them. Imagine the wild enchantment that’s unleashed when we help you stage your next corporate meeting or incentive trip amidst the astonishing beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way. With daily direct air access via Kerry, Cork and Shannon you can easily take flight and lose yourself – or find yourself – on the wild side!
Ancient castles, luxury mansions, international town and country programme brands and world-class 5-star hotels all ensure a more than comfortable stay. But when you want a raw, unique experience, the boundless beauty of nature is there for you, right on your doorstep – Europe’s highest seacliffs, oak groves pre-dating the industrial revolution, majestic mountains mirrored in shimmering blue lakes, a feeling of “getting away from it all” and the unmistakable sound of the crashing, lashing waves of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Discover Northern Ireland
Fly directly into to Belfast Airport before you embark on a journey of discovery in a city full of history. Explore the city’s Titanic Quarter to see the shipyards in which the most famous ship in the world was constructed. For a change of scene, escape to Northern Ireland’s breathtaking coastline and the stunning Giant’s Causeway for stimulating and relaxing incentive experiences.
