Ireland info

Ireland has undergone major cultural, social and economic changes in recent decades. The relatively dismal, repressed, and depressed Ireland of the past has been replaced by a young vibrant and booming modern Irish society. The mood of the people is currently one of confidence and pride, enhanced in no small part by the positive international profile which Ireland currently enjoys. Ireland has a magic that captures every one of its visitors. The Irish landscape has a mythic resonance and the country's ancient history is almost tangible – Celtic tribes first arrived on the island between 600-150 B.C. From breathtaking landscapes, magnificent waterways, and castles rich with significance, you'll be spoilt for choice for things to see and do when you visit Ireland. Take your pick from cosmopolitan cities, bustling towns or quiet country villages nestled in the luminous green landscape, luxuriant with wildflowers. Whether your passion is golf, fishing or even splashing about on a surfboard, Ireland has the perfect locations. And when the outdoors gets too much, retire to the riotous pubs and enjoy the natural spark of the Irish people. From the bright lights of Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Kilkenny or Waterford to the breathtaking countryside in between - Ireland is sure to get under your skin!
