The Emerald Isle is resplendent in its beauty thanks to the ‘soft’ weather that the Irish are so keen to talk about. The vapours from its surrounding oceans create colours of the deepest hues, painting a landscape that is romantic and unlike any other place on earth!
Carrick-on-Shannon feels like a home-from-home, and rightly so. It boasts elegance, magnificence and beauty. Spend days admiring castles, learn about the 20th century arts, or just enjoy the live music and quiz nights at the hotel. Inspirational sights and scenery fills you with imagination as we follow father and son, W.B Yeats and J.B Yeats, admiring both their poetry and paintings along the way.
Irish people love to talk. They’re proud to expound on myths and legends spanning as far back as 6000BC, featuring all the stuff of folklore. No matter what hand history deals them, the Irish generally consider themselves to be lucky and a journey to the Emerald Isles reveals the reasons why. Beneath the Liffey’s bridges or along the River Barrow’s golden banks, a magic flows through this island, intoxicating all who come to visit.
