The basics to remember for your stay in Ireland
Ireland is an island off the Atlantic Ocean in western Europe. It is the second largest of the British Isles (Great Britain being the largest) and covers a few thousand square kilometers (thousand square kilometers). It has a humid climate. Precipitation occurs throughout the year, but is generally slightly higher in winter than in summer.
The weather in Ireland is changing continuously, but overall it’s raining a lot. That’s why the country looks so green!
If you come for two weeks, you can be lucky and get the best two weeks of the year, with uninterrupted sunshine, or you can have two weeks of non-stop rain.
The island of Ireland is a very beautiful place, with a wide variety of landscapes ranging from wild and desolate mountain areas, to gentle pastoral landscapes, spectacular coastal roads, inland lakes and waterways.
The city of Dublin in Ireland is a mix of all kinds of things. Many remains of the elegant Georgian architecture have made Dublin one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Belfast, in Northern Ireland, has a rather different character. It is a city that has grown from a legacy of heavy industry: shipbuilding, canvas weaving, rope making, and heavy engineering.
Cork is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland. It’s a more relaxing place than Dublin, known for its tranquil setting on the Lee River.
The most important prehistoric site in Ireland is Newgrange, near Drogheda, in Louth County, as well as its neighboring sites, Nowth and Dowth. They can be compared in importance with Stonehenge and the Pyramids as one of the great wonders of the ancient world.
The main cities in Ireland have a range of restaurants of all varieties, including those of the highest international standards.
