Welcome to Ireland

A Small Country with a Big Heart.

Ireland. Where you will meet the friendliest people, otherwise known as the “Emerald Isle”, this shimmering green jewel awaits you. Feel right at home in the slightly slower, more relaxing pace of one of the world’s friendliest and most magical smaller of countries. Sip the authentic taste of Ireland’s ‘black gold’, Guinness as you join in with the song and merriment of Dublin’s countless pubs and taverns brimming with local musicians sharing their own special Gaelic tales in tunes and verse.

Traverse the picturesque landscapes from the peaks of the Wicklow Mountains to the pasturelands of Tipperary, with interludes at medieval castles, monasteries and pubs along the way. Seek out Ireland’s wilder side in county Cork and the rugged grandeur of the Beara Peninsula. Take a coastal hike to megalithic ruins and ancient stone circles. Pass through stunning Killarney National Park on the Iveragh Peninsula. On the Dingle Peninsula, a center of Gaelic culture, enjoy breathtaking sea views. Ireland is your passport from the Atlantic Ocean to the Irish Sea towards England. Once you have tasted peat-caressed Irish stew, pinned a native shamrock to your lapel for good luck, felt the warmth of Aran knitwear on your shoulders, and be kissed by The Blarney you will truly be the ‘green envy’ of all you know!
