Visit the Emerald Isle with RCI Holidays

Ireland is a fascinating country with a wealth of culture dating back to pre-historic times. Irish culture has had a significant influence on the rest of the world, in fields such as the arts, science and education and these days it's is one that many people across the world claim an affinity with. The country itself is beautiful beyond measure and it is therefore no surprise that timeshare giants such as RCI Holidays now have a presence in the country. With an ever-increasing number of affiliates, here are some of the cream of the crop from the RCI resorts directory.

Galway Bay Cottages
Situated about three miles from the centre of Galway, these quaint cottages are the ideal place to base yourself in order to explore the local area. The city of Galway has plenty to offer the visitor, with traditional music bars that offer a lively evening's entertainment, activities for the kids, such as the aquarium and Bridget's Garden and several noteworthy guided tours. The freedom afforded by staying in your own cottage allows you a great deal of flexibility with your holiday and lets you fully immerse yourself in the country.

Fitzpatrick Castle Holiday Homes
If you want the full five-star treatment, then you can't go wrong by staying in these holiday homes, which are one of the recipients of the RCI Holidays resort directory Gold Crown awards. A Gold Crown resort is more or less a guarantee of excellence, as much of the criteria for which the award is given are based on customer review and not company policy. Here, you get to experience the magic of staying in an eighteenth century castle, close to the splendour of Dublin Bay and within easy reach of the beautiful Wicklow Mountains. If you want to experience all that is typically Irish, then this is the place for you.

Clare Resorts at East Clare Golf Village
This truly is a golfer's paradise, with a championship golf course on hand for those choosing to stay here. If you can drag yourself away from the links for a while, you'll find that you're at a great starting point for exploring some wonderful countryside and experiencing some of the fabulous sights that make Ireland such a wonderful place to stay.

No matter which of the Irish resorts you choose from in the RCI resorts directory, you'll fall in love with this country and its people, meaning that your first visit will surely not be your last.
