Riding through the land of Joyce and Beckett is like finding your very own four-leaf clover: a chance to explore the island’s countless shades of green—a Celtic, mythic and unique experience! Wide open spaces, castles, sheep, velvet meadows, lichen-covered rocks, single-lane country roads: there’s so much to enjoy, and all in an atmosphere where days seem to extend to 28 hours—an irresistible invitation to take the time to drink it all in. And in addition to these numerous charming attractions, there’s the warm welcome of the Irish people! With a pint of Guinness at the pub to end the day, Ireland is sure to cast its spell.
