All About Ireland

Ireland certainly lives up to its nickname, the "Emerald Isle" – it's unbelievably green, with expanses of rolling fields and hills, lush vegetation under foot, and colorful gardens.


Ireland is an island nation on the westernmost edge of Europe.  It is the continent's second largest island.  The Republic of Ireland occupies 80 percent of the landmass, while the largest part of the land in the north belongs to the United Kingdom.
