With the Irish government encouraging staycations across the country, your next set of days off might include a road trip to some of Ireland’s hidden gems. Whether it’s The Burren in County Clare, the Céide Fields in County Mayo, Charles Fort in County Clare or somewhere else, a road trip is one of the best ways to experience some beautiful locations around our Emerald Isle. To start, you’ll need a route, planned stops to refuel and refresh, and a great soundtrack. Next, you’ll need to think of COVID-19 safety measures and pack plenty of hand sanitiser, face masks and disinfectant wipes.
When packing things to wear, think of your planned activities – hoodies and joggers are super comfy and cosy making them ideal to wear for the drive; floaty dresses and strappy heels are an easy option for dining out; if a hike is on the itinerary, leggings, sporty vests, and a hooded raincoat are key; if there’s a beach stop, a swimsuit, beach kaftan, sunhat and sandals are essential for looking trendy but feeling comfy.
