Irish whiskey, Saint Patrick, Guinness beer. Sister of the United Kingdom. The westernmost European Nation that is the Emerald Island, boasts of having one of the deepest cultural heritages of all of the old continent, compromised of epic tales of conquest, faith, and courage.
Ireland sights are filled with rolling hills and long green vales alongside more rugged, rocky areas in its landscape with many peaks, mountains, and cliffs to awe at. The Irish people love banter and expressive use of language to tell their stories, so much that many great writers of the English language came from this very magical place. Get to know the island before taking your own Irish adventure with these books, they might just bring you luck!
