What to expect in Ireland

The lore and legacy of Ireland is often one cliché too many – pocket-sized leprechauns, cheery shamrocks, and a towering pint of Guinness. But, beyond the marketable icons, there are real gems to uncover with a visit to this verdant isle. Ancient ruins, soaring sea-side cliffs, and rock-walled pastures fill the countryside. Thankfully, the lush landscape that has inspired poets and artists for centuries is as picturesque today as it was long ago. Though Ireland has clearly modernized, for many, Ireland is about simple pleasures: a hike through the countryside, a cozy night in a dimly lit pub, or a meal shared with a new friend. And, Ireland’s world-renowned hospitality helps make these simple experiences attainable for many foreign travelers.
