From Belfast to Dublin, explore the magical scenery of Ireland
Ireland is not all about leprechauns and Guinness. It is a land of complex history, deep religious roots and staunch nationalism knitted together to form the unique fabric of modern Irish society. It is also a place of great beauty, with barren islands, castles ringed by ancient stone walls, weathered cottages, rolling green hills, rugged coastlines and rocky mountainsides that will leave most people breathless.
