IRELAND

It doesn’t matter what time of the year you travel to the Emerald Isle, its stunning beauty and friendly people, activities and attractions that bring together these qualities, cities that breathe culture and history, and interesting characters you will fondly recall will give you treasured memories to take home.

Quiet and tranquil, the island’s waterways consist of lakes, canals and winding rivers. Rugged mountain ranges dominate the skyline while cliff faces, crevices and underground caves are calling out to be explored. Castles and Stately homes are particularly popular attractions from one end of the island to the other.

It’s no wonder they call Ireland the Emerald Isle.

NORTHERN IRELAND

Northern Ireland is composed of 26 districts, each offering scenery that will take your breath away.

CENTRAL IRELAND

Central Ireland encompasses a vast region and a variety of geography. The Wicklow Mountains are a geographic feature in Wicklow County. In the southern portion of Central Ireland is Rosslare Harbour which has architectural marvels that are worth a visit and Avoca Village was made famous as the filming location of the BBC series Ballykissangel in the 1980s.

SOUTHERN IRELAND

The south is an area rich in historical remains that recall the passage of the Celts, Vikings, Normans, and Anglo-Saxons. This is a land of fertile valleys and glens and has some of the finest castles, monastic remains, churches, and archaeological sites. The Irish love their sport and there’s nothing quite like a good game of hurling or Gaelic football. Horseracing, greyhound racing, and cycle racing are prevalent, with many tracks in the area.
