Irish Islands

Ireland doesn't stop at its coastline or waterfront. In fact, the ends of the earth are only the beginning of the adventure – the springboard from which you cross the Atlantic Ocean to some of the country’s best-kept secrets. There’s no feeling quite like standing on an Irish island. Gazing out into the Atlantic blueness, sensing the salt on your tongue and the sea breeze on your cheeks, a visit to these outposts is an enlivening experience. Wild, rugged and beautiful - welcome to Ireland’s Islands

Kerry

Right out on the edge of Europe, where Ireland’s highest mountains dip down into the wild Atlantic Ocean, is the ancient Kingdom of Kerry. This is the furthest west you can go in all of Ireland. “Next parish, Manhattan” they say here. And it’s partly this far-flung feel – away from the rest of the world in Ireland’s beautiful South West corner – that makes it so appealing. There’s good food, fine pubs, easy banter and live music to be found right across Kerry in lively towns and tiny settlements.

Matsuyama

The largest city on the island of Shikoku in Japan, Matsuyama is a vibrant city of living traditions, set against a backdrop of historical buildings, where haiku poetry is still enjoyed as a part of daily life. A full calendar of seasonal festivals means that there's always something eye-catching going on. The city is served by a network of vintage trams and steam trains, so getting about is easy. Matsuyama also has miles of sandy beaches framing the beautiful island-studded Seto Inland Sea.

Brno

With a skyline dominated by the imposing Špilberk Castle and the soaring twin-spires of the Peter and Paul Cathedral, Brno has an attractive and historic city centre. The name, Brno, might sound like a crossword anagram, but the Czech Republic’s second largest city and capital of Moravia is a vibrant, yet traditional, place. Brno boasts stunning architecture, great museums, a crypt, a gorgeous lake – just a tram ride away – and an exciting, beer-filled bar scene without heaving crowds.

The Azores, Portugal

Whale Watching

The Azores are nowadays one of the world’s biggest whale sanctuaries. Among resident and migrant species, common or rare, over 27 different types of cetaceans can be spotted in the Azores. It is an impressive figure and corresponds to a third of the total number of existing species. The Azores are in an ecosystem with unique characteristics. With the presence of majestic whales and friendly dolphins, the blue from the Atlantic Ocean becomes even more magic and blessed around the nine islands.

Island Roy - Oileán Ruaidh

This tiny undiscovered Island off the the coast of Donegal is a place to get lost, to contemplate, to walk. So secluded is Oileán an Bhráighe that is often missing from maps. One has to explore to find it. It is, however, surprisingly easy to reach. As long as you don't arrive at high tide you can drive across to this unique retreat. Before the causeway to the mainland was built, children used to wade through the water on stilts at low tide to get to school
