An island in the Atlantic Ocean 80km to the west of Britain across the Irish Sea, Ireland stretches 500km from its northern to southern tips. Full of fascinating myths and legends, Ireland is a land of rich history and culture. With a population of 3.96 million this is a land famous for its welcoming pubs, music and oratory tradition.
The interior is largely made up of flat countryside, raised bogs and gentle rolling hills. Surrounded by rugged hills and low mountains, Ireland is home to a wealth of opportunities for day walkers and serious hikers alike.
