Ireland, the Emerald Island. The hills, covered with lush, emerald green grass are full of mystical stone buildings from prehistoric times, Celtic monuments and medieval forts and monasteries.

The island is the home of legends, music, poetry and dance. The capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin, has many sights worth taking a look at, for example the Trinity College, Christchurch and the St. Patrick Cathedral, the Parliament, and the National Gallery.

The Georgian houses in the vicinity of Merrion Square, with their colorful doors and bronze knockers are the nicest in the city. One cannot skip the Jameson whiskey factory, the Guinness Brewery, and the pubs of the Temple Bar district, where live music is played every evening. Dublin is the city of G. B. Shaw, Oscar Wilde, Yeats, Swift and James Joyce, and Irish dance also originates from here.

The countryside has many beautiful castles, parks and charming medieval villages, while nature comforts the visitor with such beauties as the Powerscourt waterfall, the 'glen of the two lakes', and the limestone plateau of Burren or the Cliffs of Moher.
