The poet William Drennan named Ireland as the Emerald Isle in the 18th. Since then, visitors from all five continents have not stopped reaffirming it. It can boast a unique legacy, as Viking and Gaelic blood runs through its veins, which are the keys to its distinctive personality. As if this were not enough, it has two hearts that share the beauty of impressive cliffs, legendary castles, endless coasts and idyllic landscapes of intense greenery; without forgetting its urban face, that has flirty populations and important cities, like Dublin and Belfast. Separated by the colors of a flag, both sides struggle to overcome the differences and share an important value: the ubiquitous kindness of the Irish. Take the test, traveler, and frequent one of the thousands of pubs that know beer and tradition. How long do you think it will happen without you making conversation with a local? We guarantee that you will not reach the second pint.


It is at least interesting that Ireland, a country with a small population – today, 4.7 million in the Republic of Ireland – has given the world such an important volume of outstanding writers, as well-known readers might have recognized. James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Bram Stocker, Bernard Shaw, Jonathan Swift are just some of the great feathers that were inspired by these unique landscapes. Take paper and pen, who knows … Maybe the muses will also meet you during your trip to the emerald island.
