A holiday in Ireland allows one to experience a culture deeply steeped in history. Ireland’s history is reflected in the warm hospitality, underrated delicious traditional
Irish food and drink, brilliant Irish folk music, and beautiful landscape. Whether enjoying a morning breakfast at a guest house in Dublin, downing a pint or two in a pub in Belfast, experiencing the local artists of Kerry or Cork, or hiking along a seaside cliff on the Dingle Peninsula, it is hard not to feel a part of the dramatic culture of the country’s people and the rich history that is Ireland.
Developing an understanding of the rich history and culture of Ireland allows for a deeper appreciation of the ancient monuments found there today, as well as, reasons for the heartache of contemporary disputes. The story of Ireland is an ancient tale, older than the pyramids of Egypt, and full of more turmoil, upheaval, and romance than any daytime drama.
Our photo gallery depicts many scenes of Ireland. Some are symbolic of Irelands past while others represent present times. Many capture the wonderful natural scenery and quaint charm, which is unique to Ireland.
