Ireland, appropriately known as the Emerald Isle, is a country steeped in history and rugged vistas. We'll encounter these vistas firsthand as we hike to high cliffs, remote islands, coastal areas, and the lunar landscape of the Burren. We'll learn about Ireland's turbulent past, including the Great Famine, and the centuries of conflict between the British and Irish. We'll visit Caherconhill Fort, Bunratty Castle, and the famous Kylemore Abbey. We'll discover just how far Irish cuisine has come in the past 10 years. And of course, we'll always look for chances to listen to Irish music.
