Ireland weaves its magic into your very heart and soul, as you drive to Galway Bay and the 'Cliffs of Moher' through County Clare (Shannon) to Cork and east to Waterford and Wicklow, a rich and powerful collection of experiences await you. The capital Dublin is a lively place and excellent shopping can be found in Grafton Street which is also close to Trinity College; where the Old Library is home to the historic 'Book of Kells', and the Temple Bar with its street entertainers, restaurants and of course pubs.
Drive just outside Dublin, where there are quaint little villages, rolling green hills as far as the eye can see and a friendly pub culture which welcomes travellers and encourages you to get to know the locals. No trip to Ireland is complete without visiting the majestic region of Kerry with the 'Ring of Kerry' the 'Dingle Peninsula' and the shining Lakes of Killarney hot on the list of things to see.
