I'm very anxious to start a new adventure in Ireland for two years on the Working Holiday Program. In Vancouver, Canada I am a Tour Guide and Travel Consultant, now looking to bring over my experience and skills to Ireland. However, given the seasonality of Ireland's tourism industry and weather dependance, I am trying to evaluate when is a good time to arrive in an effort to pursue tourism sales positions. 

Ideally, I am looking at coming in October, but am also considering April of 2018 given the expected seasonality of Ireland's Tourism Industry. Does any have any thoughts? Are tour operators looking to fill sales roles over the winter in advance of the season? Is it better to wait for spring 2018, or come in October?

Hello, Jason.

This is very exciting!  I am sure that some of our other Community members will have some valuable information to share with you to best determine how to proceed with your plans.

Have you got your sights set on anywhere in particular throughout the island?

Best,

Colin

To be honest, I haven't looked into all the areas and history just yet. As a tour guide in Vancouver, I haven't really had much time during our peak season here. But I can tell you that I am very interested in exploring the whole island, as I have friends in Cork, Dublin, Wicklow, Belfast (UK - I know), and elsewhere. I'm open to living anywhere to start, as I'm more interested in settling in and looking for work first before spending my savings on travel. However, I plan to explore as much as possible from the Cliffs of Moher to Guinness Brewery to Ring of Kerry, and historic Irish castles. Do you have any suggestions on best ways to travel for an independent or solo traveller in Ireland? I haven't looked into all of that yet, because I am not sure what my travel budget will be. 

I plan to use Ireland as a base to work, and travel around Europe. There are many countries I wish to visit and explore, so I will have to pick certain regions.

Hi Jason,

Completely understandable.  There's certainly no shortage of some excellent places throughout our wee island waiting to be explored. There are some wonderful ready-made itineraries that you are very welcome to browse through, that cover different areas of the Emerald Isle.

There are a number of transport options such as public transport and vehicle rental if you wish to explore freely.  There is also, of course, the option to book tours through tour operators, should a more organised approach be more convenient for you.  Do you have a particular preference?  

It sounds like quite an exciting adventure and an excellent way to explore what the world has to offer!

All the best,

Colin
