Trip rating
  • Ireland is not all about leprechauns and Guinness.  It is a land with a complex history where religion and nationalism shapes the fabric of the nation to this day.  It is also a place of great beauty.  From barren islands divided into a patchwork by ancient stone walls to wooded mountainsides, Ireland has something for everyone.
