Ireland Adventure Travel, Throughout your travels you will be overwhelmed by the cultural choices on offer -- a play by one of the theatrical greats in Dublin, a traditional music 'session' in a west-Ireland pub or a rock gig in a Limerick saloon.
The Irish summer is awash with festivals celebrating everything from flowers in bloom to high literature.
(Taw fall-cha row-at) -- 'You're very welcome'.
Or, more famously, céad míle fáilte -- a hundred thousand welcomes.
Irish friendliness is a tired cliché, an over-simplification of a character that is infinitely complex, but there's no denying that the Irish are warm and welcoming, if a little reserved at first.
Wherever you meet them -- the shop, the bar, the bank queue -- there's a good chance a conversation will begin, pleasantries exchanged and, should you be a stranger in town, the offer of a helping hand extended.
But, lest you think this is merely an act of unfettered altruism, rest assured that the comfort they seek is actually their own, for the Irish cannot be at ease in the company of those who aren't.
A hundred thousand welcomes.
It seems excessive, but in Ireland, excess is encouraged, so long as it's practised in moderation.
Why I Love Ireland Adventure Travel
There's an unvarnished informality about Ireland that I cherish, based on an implied assumption that life is a tangled, confusing struggle that all of us -- irrespective of where we hail from, what our politics are and how we worship -- have to negotiate to the best of our abilities.
We're all in this together, come hell or high water, so we may as well be civil and share a moment when we can.
Enjoy your Ireland Adventure Travel!
