Holiday In Ireland by Stephen McBride
Thinking of taking a holiday
in Ireland? Visiting Ireland on a holiday or vacation is a decision you
will not regret. Ireland, although small, is a truly beautiful little country
with a background steeped in culture and wonderful history. Ireland is
primarily a Celtic nation, with an interesting mix of ancient and modern
The population of Ireland
is approximately 4.5 million, which is of course small for a country. It
is split into 2 parts - the republic Of Ireland and Northern Ireland, which
is still in fact a part of the UK. It consists of 32 counties, 26 which
are in the ROI and 6 which are in N.Ireland.
Ireland has three world heritage
sites - the Boyne valley (scene of a very famous battle), Great Skillig
and the Giants causeway in Northern Ireland.
|However there are numerous
other wonderful places of interest to visit if you are thinking of taking
a holiday to Ireland. The scenery is truly amazing, with miles of unspoilt
greenery and fantastic cliffs where the Atlantic ocean crashes in.
The county of Donegal is
one of the counties well worth a visit. There you will discover old Irish
thatched cottages, which have remained untouched for over a hundred years
and a visit wouldn't be complete without a walk on the beaches of Donegal,
taking in the stunning cliffs of this Irish county.
Your holiday in Ireland probably
would not be complete either without visiting Dublin, the capital city
of Ireland - a city which has grown extremely popular with tourists taking
a short break holiday to Ireland.
It is a city steeped in
culture, both in terms of music and the arts. Of course it is also home
to the world famous Guiness storehouse. In fact the Guiness brewery is
the no1 international tourist visitor when it comes to a holiday in Ireland!

will guarantee a very enjoyable and memorable visit. So much to see and
so much to do. Ireland is a country with connections the world over, having
experienced a large exodus of its people who were scattered worldwide during
the very hard times in Ireland hundreds of years ago.

why so many people with Irish roots are so keen to visit its wonderful
shores each year and experience the delights of a holiday in Ireland. So
