There is more to Ireland than Guinness

Ireland and Oxygen WorldwideIn 854AD the Vikings made a permanent settlement at Dyflinn, the place we now know and love as the Guinness guzzling city of Dublin. The King’s Palace stood on the present Dublin Castle site and part of the town’s defences can still be seen at the Undercroft in the castle.

In the 19th century Ireland was struck by the Great Famine caused by a potato blight. Sadly, over a million inhabitants died of starvation. Two million people emigrated to the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Between 1848 and 1950 over six million Irish fled the country.

Modern Ireland now enjoys more immigration than emigration. Thanks in large part to the boom of the Celtic Tiger economy in the 1990s. Ireland today is now a vibrant, culturally rich and ethnically diverse country. Travel to Ireland to take in breathtaking scenery, enjoy local entertainment and most importantly sink a pint of the black stuff to ensure a perfect break-away in a buzzing atmosphere.

    I love Ireland! Took a 10-day driving trip there several years ago. Can’t wait to go back. You’re so right — there’s much more to Ireland than Guinness (but the Guinness there is really, really good)!
