Welcome to the September / October 2022 issue of Ireland of the Welcomes - the longest-running Irish interest magazine in the world.
As we bid farewell to the summer months we can't help falling in love with the autumnal light and colours in Ireland. Deanna O'Connor takes a look at the best places to visit during autumn.
Autumn is traditionally when most folks get their heads together and plan
their next vacation, something to look forward to. In this issue, we take a look at our survey results and reveal our reader's top hotels and spas around Ireland. We also feature some of the best offers available on the Emerald Isle.
While the days might be getting shorter there's still plenty to excite intrepid visitors to Ireland. The west of Ireland is famous for its wonderful clarity of light and autumn is a great time to visit. Shane O'Brien looks at some great
activities in Connemara, Galway.
Elsewhere Leon O'Cathsaigh gets us ready for Halloween with a chilling
ghost story and we also enjoy a historic walk through the Irish people's connections to US presidents.
