With bizarre lunar landscapes, the mighty Atlantic Ocean, labyrinthine caves and crystal clear waterways, Ireland's diverse landscapes will take your breath away. The coastal beauty is the stuff of legends, with shorelines trimmed by golden sands and rocky outcrops. Inland, the lakelands and rural idylls are equally as varied as they are tranquil. It's not just green; it's much, much more than that. Ireland is thought to have been inhabited from around 6000BC by people of a mid-Stone Age culture. And about 4,000 years later, tribes from Southern Europe arrived and established a high Neolithic culture. The best-known Neolithic sites in Ireland are the megalithic passage tombs of Newgrange and Knowth in County Meath.

The Irish culture has taken thousands of years to develop, so cherish every moment of your cultural discovery A literary lot with a real passion for music, dance and, of course, conversation, if there's more than two people in a room, then there's more than enough to have a party in Ireland. The Irish culture has taken thousands of years to develop, so cherish every moment of your cultural discovery. The Irish love traditions. So much so, in fact, that the country is full of them – from eating colcannon (a mixture of cabbage and mashed potatoes) on Hallowe’en to wearing something green on St Patrick’s Day. Two of the most enduring and internationally famed, however, are traditional music and Irish dancing. Traditional music can be heard all over the country from city centre pubs to rural festivals. Northern Ireland also has its own unique Ulster-Scots culture, which is prevalent throughout the counties and is often expressed through music and dance.

Overall, Ireland has a mild, but changeable, climate all year. The island experiences few weather extremes. Precipitation falls throughout the year, but is light overall, particularly in the east. The west, however, tends to be wetter on average and prone to the full force of Atlantic storms, more especially in the late autumn and winter months, which occasionally bring destructive winds and high rainfall totals to these areas, as well as snow and hail. The temperature difference can be seen in very short distances, for example the average daily maximum temperature in July in Omagh is 23°C (73.4°F), while it is only 18°C (64.4°F) in Derry, just 54.1 kilometers (33.6 miles) away. The average daily minimum temperatures in January in these locations also differ, with only -3°C in Omagh and 0°C in Derry. Average temperatures in the island vary from -4°C (min) to 11°C (max) in January and 9°C (min) to 23°C (max) in July.
