Irish gifts for large budgets
#1 A trip to Ireland
Let’s start this list with the number one Ireland gift; a trip to Ireland!
I can’t think of a better gift for someone who loves Ireland, than a vacation to their favorite country.
There are three different ways in which you can gift a trip to Ireland.
First, you can check out Skyscanner and book a flight and a hotel for the recipient.
Second, you can check out the different tours that Viator offers in Ireland. For example a walking tour in Dublin, or a visit to a whiskey distillery. This is the best option if the recipient already has a trip to Ireland booked.
And lastly, if you are not sure when the recipient is traveling to Ireland, or if you are not sure which activities they’ll enjoy, you can go for the Global Experiences gift card. This is the Viator gift card, so they can choose one of the Viator tours themselves.
