Ireland is a spectacularly beautiful country of contrasts—with the wildest and remotest of countryside and some of Europe’s most vibrant and popular cities. Ireland boasts one of the most remarkable collections of ancient and medieval archaeological sites in Europe while serving as the home of one of Europe’s youngest and most dynamic populations. Alongside the echoes of Nobel-prize winning writers such as W.B. Yeats, Samuel Beckett, and Seamus Heaney, one can now hear the rich mixture of languages, accents, and rhythms of a diverse array of people from across Europe. In addition to its remarkably rich literary heritage, Ireland is infused with the energies of a still-burgeoning music and arts scene that is second to none.
