Christmas in Ireland

Fancy getting away from everything this Christmas? Make Christmas time extra special by crossing the Irish Sea to the charming Emerald Isle.

At National Holidays we provide a selection of coach holidays to Ireland’s vibrant cities and towns over Christmas with inclusive itineraries and a glittering turkey and tinsel programme, including a delicious Christmas dinner and fabulous entertainment on selected holidays.

We take care of everything so all you need to remember is the presents, stockings for Santa to fill and a carrot for Rudolph.


Irish Christmas

The people of Ireland love festivities on every scale and know how to get in the spirit of Christmas.

Dublin is always a popular choice at this time of year. Laughter, dancing and music ring from Temple Bar. Combined with loads of attractions and beautiful architecture, the ‘Fair City’ makes a perfect city break.

Donegal is a great base for a traditional Christmas holiday. There’s a real festive atmosphere in the coastal town, the streets are aglow with twinkling decorative lights and the pubs are bursting with trade.

Take a break from your celebrations to enjoy the spectacular never-ending panoramic views of the Glenveagh National Park and breathe in the fresh sea air of the Wild Atlantic Way as the waves crash onto the sandy beaches below.

An excursion to Letterkenny provides the ideal opportunity to explore the market town whilst you can enjoy the best seafood in Ireland at Killybegs.

West Ireland is also a great place to spend Christmas. Immerse yourself in over 100 miles of natural beauty in the Killarney National Park and spend time wandering the cobble-stoned streets in medieval Galway. For those curious about Irish history, make sure you catch a glimpse of Galway Cathedral.

Although it’s great to get away for Christmas, no Christmas is complete without a traditional dinner of Christmas Day. Our breaks include traditional dinner on the big day itself so you don’t have to worry about preparing the turkey and washing up. We also offer optional visits to Christmas Eve mass on selected breaks.
