Boasting breathtaking scenery, historic national monuments, strong Celtic traditions, a rich musical heritage, and increasing modern development, it is no wonder this island country is the destination of choice for many travellers.
Home to no less than three World Heritage Sites, Ireland's many historically important sites are big visitor drawcards, including Blarney Castle, Glendalough, and Holy Cross Abbey. Ireland's natural beauty is also on display in Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher, and the vast Wicklow Mountains.
While the nation's traditionally simple dishes and heavy, potato-based diet may not appeal to visitors, the ever-popular folk at the Guinness Brewery consistently draw a crowd. A new cuisine is emerging in Ireland, however, now featuring a wider variety of vegetables and seafood thanks to international influences. If you haven't tried it, now is the time to discover more about Ireland.
