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 and Gaulish scholars , developed its own culture and civilization , most notably the great flowering of art and architecture in the early Christian era.
Visitors praise the friendless and charm of the people , and the beauty of the landscape.
The landscapes varies greatly between the high drama of the coastline or the lush farmlands of the likes of County Wicklow.
Many are surprised to find imposing prehistoric monuments , gems of early Christian architecture and elegant country mansions with fine formal gardens.
Structured tours of Ireland can allow you to see all of this !!
