Ireland overview

Ireland Travel Guide
One of Western Europe’s success stories of late - at least before the financial meltdown that is - the Emerald Isle is perhaps the most unspoilt country in the EU. It is noted for its super-green rolling hills, deserted beaches, lofty cliffs, fun towns, cosmopolitan capital and, of course, Guinness. It is also one of the friendliest places you’ll ever visit. For such a small island, Ireland has a lot of variety, with the prettiest of it in the west and south, while towns and villages harbour thousands of years of history. While the weather is predictably unpredictable and prices have spiralled to epic proportions for some reason, centuries-old pubs continue to offer lashings of craic and tradition. Ireland is served by fast ferries from numerous ports along the UK coast and there are several international airports.
