For a relatively small island Ireland offers an extraordinarily wide variety of countryside and coastline. An ecologically clean environment also makes for pure air, clear water and unspoiled stretches of countryside. Entertaining and being entertained are central to a holiday in Ireland.

Ireland has a rich history and its evidence is found everywhere in the ruins of ancient monuments and castles, some of which are older even than the pyramids. The country's past remains part of the everyday consciousness and creativity of its people.

Golf, fishing, horse riding, walking, cycling and water-sports are all extremely well catered for in Ireland. They are also easily accessible. For quieter pleasure there are castles and ancient ruins to explore. Many of Ireland's best gardens are open to visitors.

Dublin's Georgian charm can be enjoyed on walks through a city small enough to enjoy without exhausting. To the north of the city are some of the country's most important historic sites, to the west there are the plains of Kildare and to the south the Wicklow mountains. Ireland's south-east corner is a land of sandy beaches and rolling countryside.

Wexford county has seaside resorts with long beaches while Kilkenny is a mediaeval town with fine buildings to explore. In Waterford there is the famous crystal factory to visit. The south-east is an ideal introduction to the gentler beauties of Ireland.

The mountains and peninsulas of the south and south west coasts offer breathtaking scenery. Tours of Killarney and its lakes, the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula illustrate its grandeur. Cork, Ireland's second city, is home to Murphy's stout and host to the world-famous Jazz Festival.
