Cashel RuinsThey say in Ireland that there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet. The Irish pride themselves on their warm welcomes, and they have made conversation an art form. Irish people honor tradition and treasure all beautiful things and they like people who come and visit to feel the culture and enjoy the island’s heritage.

Almost everywhere you go in Ireland there are great castles and mansions and stately country homes with incredible gardens to visit. And you will find that many of the castles or mansions you visit have been lovingly maintained, with original paintings, tapestries, and paneling creating an atmosphere of regal elegance. All providing a trace of the rich Irish historical and architectural heritage.
Scenic attractions include the romantic Lakes of Killarney; the lush Wicklow Mountains; and the Cliffs of Moher, that rise from the sea in a five-mile wall. Splendid Georgian houses and gardens are seen throughout the country, and there are castles that offer luxury lodging and medieval-style banquets.
