Travel to Ireland
What to see in Ireland
Ireland is one of the most amazing and unique places to travel. A country of legends full of green forests where the secrets of medieval history still live alongside castles of great beauty. It is the land of folk villages and cosy pubs serving the best dark beer (stout). This Emerald Isle of shamrocks and harps is the perfect place to unwind and soak in the fairytale atmosphere.
In its territorial organization, Ireland is divided into two parts: the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, which belongs to the UK. Dublin is the capital of Ireland and Cork is the second most important city.
