We think you’ll agree with us when we say: Ireland is one of the most interesting countries in the world.
But what makes this country so special among hundreds of others?
Let’s break it down:
Ireland’s nature amazes and astounds at every turn. From the curious stones of The Giant’s Causeway, the many phenomenal Irish beaches and mountains, to the amazing rolling hills decorating the countryside, this land gives off an aura of ancient times.
But what makes it really stand out, you ask?
For such a small country, it is peppered with natural wonders that make the heart beat faster. This is the main reason why so many Irish poets chose Irish nature as their muse.
So if you haven’t feasted your eyes on the wonder that is the Irish countryside, there’s no time like the present.
With Ireland’s deep history, it’s no wonder it is an exceptionally interesting country today.
Why, you ask?
Well, Ireland is a country abundant in symbols – some of which you can find at every turn.
Some of the most popular Irish symbols are the Claddagh symbolizing love, friendship and loyalty, the Trinity Knot, symbolizing the Holy Trinity or the interconnectedness of the mind, body and soul, and the ever-popular Shamrock, the unofficial symbol of Ireland.
To break it down…
