Sweet, rainy Ireland! The green island, from the moderate and damp climate, rich of lakes, of rivers, of tall bluffs, of rural landscapes and of grey and sleepy villages it is place where life flows calm, with slow and relaxing rhythms.
It is a small (less than 1/4 of Italy) nation with less than 4 million inhabitants, of which almost halves rural type, distributed in the countries and in the small Irish villages.
Dublin is a strange city, pleasant; but the Atlantic southern counties of the Kerry and the Clare are also so beautiful; it is the same for the fortress of Cashel and the outskirts of Galway.
It's so beautiful to lose for the holds secondary stradine hemmed by an endless series of stone-wall!
