Check out the local cuisine... Scotch Pie These pies are a small double crusted pie filled with meat, typically minced mutton, and spiced with pepper. Large numbers of Scotch pies are sold in Scotland every day – give one a try and you’ll see why! Barmbrack This yeasted bread with sultanas or raisins is a sweet and simple snack and a traditional Irish favourite. Dublin With medieval buildings such as Dublin Castle and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Irish capital is a gorgeous yet modest city. The pub culture gives the most accurate account of the intimate and welcoming atmosphere that defines Dublin. Don’t miss out on Grafton Street, famous for its buskers and shops. Killarney After Dublin, Killarney is the second most popular destination in Ireland, set beside Lough Leane and not far from several lakes, waterfalls and forests. The town is famous for its jaunting cars (horse drawn carts) operated by charismatic locals who will give you an authentic and memorable experience. Edinburgh A compact but expansive city, Edinburgh is one of Europe’s finest showpieces. Its stone buildings seem to blend into the surrounding rocky terrain with the view from Arthur’s seat – an extinct volcano, one of the city’s highlights. The city is a bustling cosmopolitan centre with a medieval old town and Georgian new town, ensuring that the architecture is as diverse as the people that it attracts. St. Helier Standing in St. Aubin’s Bay on the south side of the island, Jersey’s capital is a delightful harbour town boasting a charming pedestrianised centre. With a lively vibrant atmosphere, the town is definitely British but has a distinct French flair.
