Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.

Banner County
Situated just below County Galway on Ireland's west coast, County Clare serves as an amalgamation of stunning and unusual landscapes. Known for some of the most-visited sites in Ireland, County Clare draws visitors with its dramatic Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. Formed by the pounding waves of the Atlantic below, the sheer cliffs bring together green earth, sheer drop-offs and blue sea. Meaning "a rocky place," the Burren landscape provides a stark contrast to the traditional green hills of Ireland, appearing as a moonscape of rocky crags and slabs. Beyond the natural splendor, the warmth of the residents in the county's small villages is a gem in its own right. Traditional Irish music and culture permeates this land and its people.

O'Donnell's County
Encompassing nearly a fifth of the country's coastline, County Donegal remains one of Ireland's wildest regions. Despite its large size, the county houses just over 150,000 residents spread across a landscape of low mountains and natural sea loughs. A bastion of Gaelic culture, the region maintains a distinct cultural identity and a fierce spirit of independence, exemplified by the popular saying "Up here it's different." A place of extremes, County Donegal features a rugged interior and an even rockier coastline, boasting some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe. Still relatively undiscovered by foreign travelers, this region offers you a chance to discover a quieter side of Ireland largely untouched by commercialization and mass tourism.

Royal County
The birthplace of Irish civilization, County Meath served as a political center of Ireland for many centuries. The region's rich soil, the result of the last ice age, attracted the first settlers nearly 10,000 years ago. Thanks to an abundance of good land, plentiful water, and a strong farming tradition, the county remains one of Ireland's major agricultural regions, known for its production of potatoes, barley, milk, and grain. Much more than just fertile farmland, this area also boasts the country's largest Norman castle and one of the biggest megalithic complexes in the world, a sprawling archaeological site containing a network of 5,000-year-old burial mounds.
