Ireland

Things to do - general

 

Escape to the Emerald Isle, where rolling green hills and friendly Irish faces beckon. Ireland’s charm lies not only in its natural beauty but in the warmth and friendliness of its people and their culture. Its soul can be found in the pubs across the country, where you can enjoy a pint of Guinness, and some chit-chat..for in this country the sharing of a drink is as much a ritual as a handshake. Imagine strolling in from a cobblestone street and snuggling up to a warm fire in your quaint cottage, or chowing down on fresh-baked Irish soda bread in the heart of town. From a thatched cottage on the shores of Galway bay to a townhouse in Dublin to a coach house in Donegal, we’ve got hundreds of cottages for you in the most popular regions of Ireland. The mostly rural, green landscape and slower pace of life, will send you home relaxed and wanting to return again! Please see ‘Accommodations’ for a few examples of our properties, but we have many more ! Please send us your request.

Culture and history info

Ireland's culture comprises elements of the culture of ancient peoples, later immigrant and broadcast cultural influences (chiefly Gaelic culture, Anglicisation, Americanisation and aspects of broader European culture). In broad terms, Ireland is regarded as one of the Celtic nations of Europe, alongside Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man and Brittany. This combination of cultural influences is visible in the intricate designs termed Irish interlace or Celtic knotwork. These can be seen in the ornamentation of medieval religious and secular works. The style is still popular today in jewellery and graphic art, as is the distinctive style of traditional Irish music and dance, and has become indicative of modern "Celtic" culture in general.

Since the 20th century the Irish pubs worldwide have become, especially those with a full range of cultural and gastronomic offerings, outposts of Irish culture.
