Ireland sits at the edge of Europe with the Wild Atlantic pounding its western shores. Location and weather have shaped landscape and culture. Legend has it when Christianity came to Ireland, pagan gods transformed into horses and leapt into the Atlantic at Aill na Searrach - Foal’s leap. Beautiful flowers abound on the west coast and on remote roads you are more likely to see sheep than cars - rush hour in Ireland. You can beach comb for Atlantic treasures on one of the many secluded beaches. When the weather changes and Ireland can have four seasons in one day, you can always call into the pub for a music session.
