I dont know hwy Ireland is seen as so special! I know some of our music is great! and our views are spectacular but other European countries have them too!
We are good at making positive propaganda about ourselves I guess!
Why are you interested in Ireland?

I honestly don't know why people see Ireland as a brilliant place. We have the Giant's Causeway, which is one of the seven wonders of the world, the stories behind it are pretty interesting. If you're a child at heart, anyway.Rosalind

The fantastic Riverdance that amazed most of Europe at the Eurovision song contest...
Northern Irish Catholics love to be "Irish" so they are unassociated with the troubles recognised worldwide. Or so I believe.
Many Americans have ancestors from Ireland.
Generally I find Irish people are very friendly and easy to chat to (if you understand their fast pace of conversation!)
OK so I am Irish/Northern Irish, but I wanted to look at the big picture.cristally

Enya is the most successful female artist in Japan!! And she's very successful in the U.S.
We have our own mythology.

Well, even though I'm 50 and of Irish ancestry, I've only been to Ireland once, staying overnight in Dublin for work.
I'm going to Gorey in Wexford in July, though, and I'm looking forward to that. I feel that the people are what make a place good (or bad) to visit, and I have vague recollections of Irish relations from when I was a kid that convince me I'm going to enjoy it!
But tell me, does it really rain as much as they say it does?? ;)caeireann

Yes and no! :) A very Irish answer. It is more likely to rain in the North West and the West than in the East or South East, where it can get real hot and sunny in the summer.
However April is terrible for all of Ireland. It is the month I hate the most, it can be very sunny and all of a sudden out of the blue comes rain!!!! November can also be bad, but then it is just wet and cold, not warm and wet. LOLJimD
Thursday 26th of January 2006 06:53:05 PM
Well, I'll be in the South East (ish) in July, so I should be alright! :)caeireann

Why Ireland is special! There is the people who make you laugh and make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive into their country. It is the music session listened to with a pint of Guiness. It is the beauty of the westcoast! The scenery is absolutely spectacular.
I just lived there for the last 3 years and had an amazing time and wouldn´t change it for the world! Laoghaire

I have been to Ireland close to ten times - and I keep coming back again and again...
Coming back to Ireland is like coming home - I don't know why. It just feels right.
I love the old myths and legends and much of the landscape and scenery looks like the heroes of old times might still be alive and waiting behind the next corner...
There are a million different shades of green.
The fantasic nature and spectacular views on the western coast, the cosy pubs, great people with a great sense of humour.
I once asked an Irishman, why there are so few unfriendly people in Ireland. His answer was: "We sent them all to the west." (Considering that we were already at the west coast...)
And if you don't like the weather - wait five minutes...
I just love Ireland - I'll be going to Dublin next week for a long weekend. And I'm planning on going to the west coast (again) in October. (Can't wait...) Return to the IRELAND Archive
