Ireland is known for its picturesque landscapes, colorful history, and thrilling fairy tales of goblins and elves, as well as traditional music and passionate dance. Discover the rugged rocky landscapes, the endless green fields and the tranquility of Ireland. If you prefer to go to the city, travel to Dublin or Cork and get acquainted with the vibrant Irish nightlife: a beer in the pub with live music! If you're in Dublin, visit the impressive library at Trinity College. There are five million books in the library, including many ancient scriptures that you cannot see anywhere else. The green island is also home to two exciting UNESCO World Heritage sites: the rocky island of Skellig Michael is Ireland's hardest-to-reach medieval monastery. The second cultural heritage is a collection of prehistoric places of worship, the Bend of the Boyne (Gaelic: Brú na Bóinne), built between 3500 and 2500 BC.
