STEEP CLIFFS AND GREEN MEADOWS
Any attempt to describe Ireland in a few lines is difficult, for the island is an elemental work of nature: it can hardly be described in words. The Gulf Stream determines the mild Irish climate and the atmosphere, especially in the southwest is almost Mediterranean. An astonishing variety of unique landscapes have a powerful impact on the visitor. 5,600 km of coastline with forbidding cliffs, sheer rock walls and watchtowers overgrown with moss alternate with gentle sandy beaches and romantic hidden bays ideal for swimming. Mountains and hills ring the Emerald Isle in their embrace. Horses, cows and sheep graze on juicy green meadows, between hedges and stone walls. Lakes emerge like dots of blue and a network of rivers and streams covers the countryside. The great Estuary of the Shannon, for example, is a true Mecca for recreational sailors.
LUST FOR LIFE AND THIRST FOR GREAT DEEDS
The Irish live in harmony with their history and nature. They have a reputation as warlike, tough, full of character, romantic and sentimental. Their language is shaped by the Celts. Many Irish use Gaelic as their everyday language. On the trail of history, you can find everywhere prehistoric cult sites that have been there for 8,000 years, early Christian monasteries, medieval crosses and fortified round towers. Splendid castles and aristocratic houses throughout the country are maintained in superb condition and exude beauty and grace. Ireland, however, is not only rural: its cities have much to offer in terms of culture and quality of life.
