Rich Celtic culture, mammoth mugs of dark Guinness, and cheeky Irish charm typify Ireland’s international appeal where this endearing island’s reputation is known the world over. From the formidable Cliffs of Moher, to the Killarney National Park, Ireland’s natural offerings are rich in treed woodlands and pastures and ocean-pounded shorelines. Visit the ancient site of Bru na Boinne for a taste of history, gaze at the remnants of 2000-year-old stone fortresses on the Aran Islands, or plant a kiss on the famous stone itself at Blarney Castle. Not forgetting capital Dublin, an unhurried city where locals and foreigners alike can share a laugh over a good pint.
