Here are five reasons to visit Ireland this summer of 2022!

There’s a reason why people love Ireland and Irish people worldwide – the culture.

3. The food

Access to the freshest, organic produce and incredible Irish seafood means one thing – amazing local cuisines are easily found all around Ireland.

When people think of Ireland, they often think of stew and soda bread – but the creativity and sheer level of gastronomical sophistication that can be found in the Irish food scene today is astounding. Young, pioneering chefs are continuing to open up restaurants all over Ireland, resulting in some of the most mind bowing dishes and dining experiences.

If you would rather enjoy some Irish cuisine from the comfort of your own Unique Irish Home, please reach out to us about booking a private chef for your stay!
