1)     Bright Lights, Big Cities

Ireland’s cities are perfect for fun breaks — the locals are friendly and the bars are hopping. Catch a live gig in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter and see why the city has become a UNESCO City of Music. Then, sample the revelry in Temple Bar and you’ll get why Lonely Planet called Dublin a Top City to visit in 2022.

2)  Foodie Treats

Fall is harvest season, meaning Ireland’s local ingredients are EXTRA tasty. Pick your own apples on an orchard tour in Armagh, shuck down oysters fresh from the wild Atlantic Ocean, then wash it all down with a craft beer or gin on one of the island’s many distillery tours. Delicious!

Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, Cork

Nowhere celebrates spooky season quite like Ireland! That’s because it all began here with the ancient Celts some 3,000 years ago and the parties have gotten bigger and better ever since. Scare yourself silly at Derry Halloween in the Walled City or mingle with ghouls, ghosts and terrifying creatures from Irish folklore at Púca Festival in the Boyne Valley. A frighteningly good time is guaranteed.

Buddha Board

Practicing mindfulness is an increasingly popular and recognized method for reducing stress, but for those needing to keep their hands busy in order to ease their anxieties, mindfulness can be difficult. While fidget toys can work in a pinch, sometimes you just want more. If you’ve tried to keep your mind clear and your hands busy with things like adult coloring books, and you’ve found that still doesn’t do much for you (all that pressure to stay inside the lines!), you might want to try the Buddha Board.
