Irish Culture

Wherever you go in Ireland you will discover an abundance of cultural expression. It’s become almost trite to declare that Ireland operates a cultural surplus. Its main strengths are the literary and musical fields, where Ireland has long punched well above its weight, but it is well represented in most other fields too. Many areas have been closed off to influences of the modern world, leaving the languages and traditions of the region completely intact.

Irish Food & Wine

Whether it’s free range produce fresh from the farm, artisan cheese, local apples or home bakery, and from pubs to restaurants and breweries, Ireland has it all. The local people  pride themselves on sourcing local food as much as possible and making homemade, quality food. Much of the food is produced literally on the doorstep with many cafes and restaurants baking and cooking homemade delights. The majority of the fish and seafood is caught or harvested locally. Much of the greens are grown locally and lots of small, artisanal producers contribute jams, cheeses, seaweed, smoked salmon and more!

Landscape of Ireland

Ireland’s natural beauty is world-renowned. Glorious beaches, vast national parks, dramatic landscapes and interesting wildlife all make it the ideal destination for the cyclist or hiker–anytime of year, or weather condition!
