1. Kerry, Ireland

All the way west in Ireland is one of the country’s most scenic counties. Kerry’s mountains, lakes and coasts are postcard-perfect, and that’s before you add in Kilarney National Park. The unique small towns such as Dingle add to its charm.

It’s no wonder Kerry is so many people’s dream destination…

2. Paris, France

One of the most iconic cities in the world, Paris tops many people’s bucket lists. You’ll see so many famous landmarks here: the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame cathedral… The list is never ending.

The city is also home to glorious food, shopping and culture. An ideal city getaway.

3. Dubrovnik, Croatia

As George Bernard Shaw once said, “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik.” With its winding streets, cliffside beach bars and UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Old Town, it’s no wonder Dubrovnik is such a popular spot.

4. Edinburgh, Scotland

No trip to Scotland is complete without a visit to the picturesque city of Edinburgh.

With the historic Edinburgh castle looming over the city, culture in spades and wonderfully friendly locals, this is one of the world’s greatest city breaks.

5. Rome, Italy

Whether it’s your first time in Rome or your 50th, the best thing about this city is that you’ll always discover something new each time you stroll the scenic streets.

There’s countless museums and ancient architecture, as well as heaps of culture and gourmet food. Rome is nothing but brilliant.
