Guide to Ireland

The Western European island nation of Ireland is characterised by vast green plains, often enclosed by rolling hills. It lies immediately adjacent to Northern Ireland and is crossed by the island’s longest river, the Shannon. Ireland borders both the Irish Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Culinary delights include the national dish Irish Stew and the world-famous Guinness beer, which is served in the typical pubs. The capital Dublin, located on the east coast, is known for its lively nightlife, which takes place mainly in the trendy district of Temple Bar.
