Ireland sits like a green emerald set in intensely blue water, the Atlantic to its west and England to its east. This special island is full of gently rolling hills and heath-covered moors where heather grows wild. Dramatic cliffs drop into the ocean at breathtaking angles. And Ireland is a place of longstanding and closely held traditions and legends that have weathered the test of time. The wind that whistles from the ocean seems to tell ancient tales and bring historical events fully alive in the present. Rainbows arch through the sky frequently, giving the country the feel of a fairy tale. It’s easy to see how this became the birthplace of so many stories of fantastical creatures. The stones of the many castles nestled in the Irish countryside speak to the past as well. This is a land of lively colors, sounds, and flavors—and a place full of contradiction. From its untouched valleys to its densely populated cities, it offers visitors experiences they will remember forever. From the Cliffs of Moher to untamed Connemara, from the beaches of the Dingle Peninsula to the crowded pubs of Dublin, Ireland is simply enchanting. In this volume, those landscapes are captured in a stunning array of photographic images. The text explores the history and legend of a land that has enthralled visitors for centuries. A treasure for anyone with an interest in history, culture, or simply gorgeous images of art, architecture, and landscapes along the coast and inland, this book can be enjoyed again and again.
