Ireland Travel Guide for Irish Residency Holders

Located near Atlantic Ocean, Ireland is a relatively small island with a breathtaking landscapes and friendly, welcoming people. To show advantages of Ireland and Irish Residency, Mann’s Solutions team has prepared Ireland Travel Guide for Irish Residency Holders.

Things Not to Miss in Ireland


When you think of Ireland, probably first thing that comes to mind is Dublin. The capital city is the country’s political and cultural epicenter famous for its haunted places, incredible cathedrals, historical museums and pubs. We suggest to visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral founded in 1191, where St. Patrick himself baptized Christian converts over 1500 years ago. Also, every visitor should walk across famous Ha’Penny bridge built back in 1816. In fact, the bridge was named for the “half-penny” toll that was required to cross it. We also suggest to go to famous Irish Pubs and enjoy the live music. Another great thing happening in Dublin is their spectacular sporting events. Visiting one of their Gaelic football games, horse racing events or hurling would be a great opportunity to see rich Irish tradition of sport.


Another important thing not to miss in Ireland is its nature. Visiting Killarney National Park, Cliffs of Moher and Murder Hole Beach would be an incredible experience. The Cliffs of Moher, which are also known as Ireland’s most-famous natural attraction are Ireland’s most-visited natural attraction. The location offers an impressive 214m view at their highest point, Cliffs stretch for 8 kilometres along the Atlantic coast and are great for hiking. Murder Hole Beach, on the other hand is Ireland’s most mysterious beach. Although it is not the most accessible beach in Ireland, this private beach on the Rosguill Peninsula is well worth the trip as it offers its visitors beautiful caves, pure rugged beauty and true meaning of the Wild Atlantic Way.

When to Go to Ireland

Ireland enjoys relatively mild weather throughout the year. However, we would say that the best time to visit Ireland is from April until September as the weather is less rainy and comfortable for city and nature exploring. No matter when you choose to travel, it would be better to bring an umbrella, as sometimes you’ll be able to experience all four seasons in one day.

Irish Residency Program Overview

Irish Residency or Irish Immigrant Investor program is a perfect choice for high net worth individuals and provides 4 investment options starting from €500,000. The Irish Residency Program is open to non-EEA nationals and lets the applicant and his family obtain a secure residency status in Ireland which can further lead to European Union Citizenship.

Ireland is one is the 6th best performing economy globally and therefore, is one of the best places to do business, it also has been the fastest-growing European economy on multiple occasions in the recent past. The country is highly open to foreign capital and has a reputation for protecting investor funds.

Unlike other European countries, Ireland is not driven only by two or three industries. The leading industries in Ireland are aircraft rental, pharmaceutics, financial services, alcoholic beverages, engineering, IT, and medical technologies. In addition to that, Ireland has top-notch schools and universities, which has led Ireland to have one of the best educated workforces in Europe.

Program benefits

Irish residency by investment grants the applicant a 5-year residency permit and let’s apply for permanent residence and citizenship after this period. The Program requires only one day a year visit to Ireland to keep the permit and opens 177 visa-free destinations for an applicant and the applicant’s family.
