With a name like "Emerald Isle", Ireland has a big reputation to live up to, and luckily it delivers in spades. A land of myth and legend, saints and sinners, the real Ireland is trademarked by its charismatic characters, who know how to spin a good yarn and welcome you to join in as they eat, sing, drink and dance. The Celtic legends and stories of spirited faeries and heroic battles will come alive as you take in the eye-popping landscapes. A palette of green blankets the peaty lowlands and bogs, soaring rugged cliffs and meandering rivers, while stone relics of the past adorn craggy peaks and nestle beside tranquil lakes. As nature makes its own music, so too do the Irish people - live jam sessions are a regular affair in pubs across the country, and the tuneful nature of the Irish is evident in both its musical and literary heritage. But the cultural treasures only continue from there, including a rich and hearty cuisine, celebrated distilleries and breweries, prehistoric sites and lively summer festivals. From the cιad mνle fαilte (a hundred thousand welcomes) that greets you to the majestic scenery that surrounds, this island has a powerful energy that will pull you back for more.
