"Another year over, a new one just begun," as the Beatles song goes. The end of the year, the holiday season is a great time to take stock of the months just gone and eventful as they most certainly have been, it's also a time to look to the future and think about what adventures in Ireland the next year might hold.

Inside the November /December issue of Ireland of the Welcomes, we celebrate Christmas and the wonderful Irish holiday traditions that are still practiced today. Christmas is a truly special time of year and one cherished by every Irish family.

Wrapping ourselves up in the comfort of the holiday season we take a look at a range of gifts from Ireland on offer as well as new Irish books to curl up with this winter and what's on during the Dingle Literary Festival, available online.

Looking ahead to travel in 2022 in Ireland, Domhnall O’Donoghue explores the new Clew Bay Bike Trail and falls for the buzz around Athlone town. Deanna O'Connor takes a dip into the best seaweed bath along the Wild Atlantic Way and Leo Casey tours the treasure that is Valentia Island.
