Ireland

Green and Friendly

Ireland is a nation of fascinating stories, beautifully lush and rugged landscapes, and a charming and deliciously funny national character. The northern position of the country means that the inhabitants are frequently plunged into persistent darkness or long-lasting sunny days. In fact, the nation’s history has been similarly extreme; though the Irish people lived through decades of violence and poverty at the hands of the British Empire, Ireland has now emerged as a prosperous and flourishing country. In particular, the rich cultural heritage of Ireland, from James Joyce to George Bernard Shaw to U2, cannot be disregarded. The capital city, Dublin, is both cosmopolitan and inviting, with endless opportunities for sightseeing and socializing. In rural areas, particularly in the west, the landscape is rocky, overwhelmingly lovely, and, of course, stunningly green. The Irish are amiable and welcoming people, and unlike in many countries, visitors to Ireland will find it easy to make friends with the local people. Though Ireland attracts many travelers, its appeal isn’t kitchsy or false. In fact, Ireland’s down-to-earth charm is utterly genuine.

  • Very disappointed. i am heading to the West of Ireland... mostly counties Mayo and Galway. in the "top things to do" in the West, there are only 3 things listed and two of them are a pub and a used clothing shop. Really? That's the best you've got? And i paid $4.99 for it. Absolutely no help to me at all. Any chance more will be added in the next few months?
