Following are additional sources of information about Ireland:
Ireland is also known as the ‘Emerald Isle’ due to its lush green meadows and beautiful landscape. It is one of the top 10 tourist destinations in the world. The Emerald Isle offers the traveler quaint villages, verdant landscapes, and great beer. Dublinia is a heritage centre, located in the heart of the Medieval city of Dublin. There are three exciting exhibitions in Dublinia: Viking Dublin, Medieval Dublin and the History Hunters. The people of Ireland are known for being a hospitable bunch. Expect warm conversation, sociable locals and spontaneous music sessions in pubs. Most of all, we love to laugh, and craic – a good time – is our calling card. In summary: they don’t call Ireland the land of 100,000 welcomes for nothing. Old or new, culture is very important in Ireland. From boisterous traditional music to literary legends (Dublin is known as the UNESCO City of Literature), it’s simply in Irish nature. Dublin and Belfast are buzzing and beautiful cosmopolitan cities. Ireland has a wealth of tourist attractions on offer. In fact, there are so many, deciding what to see and do while visiting Ireland can be a challenge. Rather than focus on the most popular tourist attractions in Ireland, which will have a bias towards Dublin, we have chosen a range of tourist attractions that we feel are worthy of consideration.
Travelling in Ireland is not dangerous as such – millions of tourists visit the country every year without coming to harm whatsoever. Ireland is a small island but the food here is a big deal. Traditional classics like bacon and cabbage or beef and Guinness pie are rustic favourites, while super-local produce and innovative chefs are driving new Irish cuisine to terrifically tasty places. Being an island also means the freshest seafood, such as lip-smacking Lough Erne prawns and crab claws from the dreamy Inishowen peninsula. Ireland is a predominantly agricultural economy with high meat and dairy exports to the rest of the world. Additionally, it has a large IT infrastructure with investments from US and other European IT companies such as Microsoft, Dell, SAP, Intel, Salesforces.
