Welcome to Ireland on a Budget

Are you dreaming of seeing Ireland and even more curious about how to see Ireland on a budget?

Are you among the 70 million people of Irish descent from all corners of the globe who are part of the Irish Diaspora?

If getting to Ireland on a budget is part of your plan, let me help you turn that plan into a reality.

Ireland is a small country known for its emerald-green landscape and friendly people. There are several breathtaking regions to explore, in addition to vibrant cities and smaller towns and villages.

I realize that it can be hard choosing what to see on a first-time visit.  

On this website, you’ll find inspiration and a growing amount of content that is intended to help you plan your ideal Irish vacation, including suggested itineraries, transportation options and my best tips.

If you are interested in joining the Ireland on a Budget Facebook Group, please answer all the questions. This is crucial as you won't be allowed into the group if you don't answer them. 



My name is Colette Connolly and welcome to my blog, Ireland on a Budget, which was created in 2018 to showcase all the great things to see and do in Ireland, on a budget of course! Feel free to take a look around the site and follow Ireland on a Budget on social media for all the latest travel tips.
