Ireland is an island in north-western Europe which has been divided politically since 1920. Most of the island is made up of Ireland (Republic of Ireland). The remainder is Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom.
Ireland’s capital Dublin is located at the mouth of the River Liffey on the Emerald Isle’s east coast and is world-famous for traditional Irish music and dance, shamrock and the vast and untouched green landscape. If you get the chance to spend St. Patrick’s Day in the capital you will celebrate with the locals and people from all over the world alike!
The city combines its ancient heritage with its modern side, including elegant restaurants and cosmopolitan shops. Popular destinations include St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Trinity College and the Book of Kells, Christchurch Cathedral and Dublin Castle.
