Ireland: Why go

Eire - the Republic of Ireland - is an island of lush green hills, crumbling castles, rugged granite mountains, fine Georgian architecture and sleepy fishing villages, all surrounded by the brooding waters of the Irish Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Full of mystery, myths and legends, it evokes images of everything from leprechauns and Blarney stones to music festivals and perfect pints of Guinness.
