Forty shades of green and jaw-dropping natural wonders, the Emerald Isle is unforgettable with its tranquil rolling green hills and storm-lashed seaside cliffs to dramatic underground caves and magical forests. Although its scenery is the showstopper—case in point the Cliffs of Moher and the Wild Atlantic Way—Ireland offers much more with folklore and history around every corner. Whether it’s spellbinding legends, gothic castles, peace and serenity, or action-packed adventures, Ireland’s got something for everyone. And despite the never predictable (it does rain a lot), there is always a warm welcome waiting wherever you go. The best time to visit is between March and May and September to November when you can expect a temperate climate.
