17 Jan Ireland……A Beginners Guide
Ireland is the farthest outpost of Europe in the west. Isolated in ancient times from the rest of the continent – the Romans never even reached the island – Ireland, through commerce with Celtic British and Gualish scholars, developed its own culture and civilization, nost notably the great flowering of art and architecture in the early Christian era. While visitors praise the friendliness and charm of the people and the beauty of the landscape – be it the high drama of the coastline or the lush farmlands of Wicklow and Meath – many are surprised to find imposing prehistoric monuments, gems of early Christian architecture and elegant country mansions with fine formal gardens.
There is much to see: Dublin, the capital, with its many superb public buildings and elegant Georgian houses and square. Belfast, with all its history, buildings and the great north coast just over an hour away.
Or the strange beauty of the Burren on the Atlanic coast, with its endless limestone vistas and rare flora.
Whether revelling in the urbane pleasures of Dublin, taking a fresh look at the Lakes of Killarney or seeking out the remoter beauties of the offshore islands. Ireland Luxury Tours provide a well-informed guide with a fund of insights and lively anecdotes.
