Senior Travel to IrelandAug 30th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel
I just received a very nice 18-page Insider’s Guide to Ireland’s Great Offers and want to send them along to you. Here are their latest vacation deals at some “very friendly prices.” Independent travel deals start at prices form $399 up. Videos called Go Where Ireland takes you have ten beautiful gems including a topical view of the island complete with rivers, mountains, the Irish Sea, lush open fields, many tall green trees, shamrocks and more. It is a sight not to be missed, even if you do not plan to visit Ireland.
What makes Ireland so special is its evocative scenery; the landscapes that have spawned the legends of Fionn Mac Cumhail, Cu Chulainn, Diarmuid & Grainne and the legendary warmth and friendliness of the Irish people. Ireland (Éireann in Irish) is a place that both absorbs and permeates visitors leaving them with cherished memories. People sure don’t come to Ireland for the weather, though even when the rain is beating down its easy to find solace in a quiet corner beside a roaring fire or a riotous afternoon enjoying the craic in a local pub. Besides, on the Emerald Isle, it’s the rain that makes the grass so green.
Perched on the northwest tip of Europe, this is the one place in the world where even time getting lost will be worthwhile. With ancient myths and legends to uncover, amazing landscapes to explore and locals who will be more than happy to reveal hidden gems, just go where the island of Ireland takes you. Guaranteed, you’ll return home with memories that will last a lifetime.
One of the tricky things that tourists have to face when traveling in Ireland is understanding Gaelic, the language native to the country. Of course people in Ireland speak English as well, but their own version of the English language can be a little confusing, with some terms and phrases meaning differently from what an American or an Englishman may be accustomed to. On this site you will find Gaelic words you need to know. Good deal.
Here are the Top Ten Places to visit. So, hopefully I now have you planning a trip to Ireland and now you need to discover the ‘must see’ places to visit on Ireland Vacations.
