To take a tour of Ireland is to experience nature in shades of green found nowhere else: Ireland is green, from the lush green of the Irish countryside to bright green parks, dark green forests and even bluish-green lakes. And there's more: The soaring cliffs on Ireland's west coast represent one of Europe's most spectacular stretches of coastline. Yet for many residents of this small island, the sight of the Atlantic is tinged with melancholy at the thought of the scores of Irish who were driven by starvation and poverty to seek a new life on the other side of the ocean, never to return.

In our program you will not find chain hotels or group packages for mass tourists.
