Information about Ireland
Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. Ireland is a large, partly hilly plain surrounded by coastal ridges. It has survived at least two Ice Ages and is therefore dotted with layers of former glaciers, peat swamps, and lakes. The highest point is 1041 m high Mount Carrantuohill, the Shannon is the longest river (340 km), and the highest waterfall is 122 m high Powerscourt Ireland has a very oceanic climate, which means that there is not much temperature difference, between summer and winter, which is perfect for those who do not like hot summers and very cold winters. Large parts of Ireland are still intact and it seems that nature and man live in harmony. Otherwise, Ireland is called "the green island" because it is typical grassland and only 5% is covered with forest. Ireland has become an important tourist destination for Europeans.
The importance of tourism to the Irish economy has increased after the government began to systematically support and invest in tourism. Its main advantage is, of course, unspoiled nature, a healthy environment, and friendly people. Ireland has many faces and diversity in a relatively small area, so there is a lot for tourists to see and experience, such as Celtic remains, unique landscapes, the Hill of Tara, and numerous legends that can be experienced with a little imagination in enchanting castles, the highest cliffs in the world, great views and people who love music and dance. And there is no seasonality. Ireland is perfect to visit all year round. With a car rental at the airport, you have the opportunity to see all the great sights of Ireland and learn about great legends. It borders Northern Ireland and is close to the United Kingdom. The capital city of Ireland is Dublin. The population of Ireland is about 4.8 million people. The currency used in Ireland is the Euro.
