Following the success of the marriage equality referendum, Ireland has now got a well-deserved international rep as being loving and accepting towards the LGBT community. Now, according to Travel Weekly, it seems the tourism industry has picked up on this newfound image.
Brendan Vacations, a company with offices in Dublin and California, has created a 10-day Irish holiday package for same-sex couples. The fantastic itinerary includes a country-spanning trip beginning with two nights in Dublin's Merrion Hotel, before heading on to the Cliff House Hotel in Waterford, two nights at the Malton Hotel in Killarney, a night at the Mustard Seed in Limerick and two nights at Ashford Castle in Mayo, finishing with a final night back at the Merrion along; not to mention a whole lot of sight seeing along the way.
We've always prided ourselves on being a hospitable nation, but somehow we've managed to get that little bit sounder. The Irish: we're a great bunch of lads.
