Beautiful Ireland

You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy Saint Patrick’s Day: the parades, the beer, all that wearin’ o’ the green. So celebrate with us as we take a pictorial tour of the Emerald Isle, its people, its culture and history in the new Bing Travel slide show, Beautiful Ireland.

And because March 17 comes just a few days before the start of spring, here’s a traditional Irish blessing for you: “May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue -- and may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”

Happy travels!

  • Just returned from our second trip to beautiful Ireland, besides being beautiful country  the people are just as beautiful to travelers from the USA

  • I would love to visit my Mother's birth place  Spiddal, Galway

  • A trip to Eire is not complete without a stay at the lovely historical Longueville House, a Country Manor House situated overlooking the Blackwater Valley in North Cork

  • I've been there...every day I dream of going back.  With 3 grandparents born in Ireland I have heard references to it all my life.  As England's first colony, they tried to subdue it...but always failed.  As Yeats wrote:"Out of Ireland have we come, great hatred, little room, maimed us from the start.  I carry from my mother's womb

    a fanatic heart".  National Geographic Traveler called Dingle "the most beautiful place on earth".

  • The Skellig Rocks, 7 miles over the sea off the coast of County Kerry, is where I most want to be in  Irleland.  Monks went there  for prayerful solitude in the 600's.  Their stone huts, made without any mortar, still stand today on the 700 foot high precipice.  You can only get there by fishing boat - WHEN the weather is good.   You  must be hearty enough to climb up 600 stone steps -   but it is well worth it!

  • I've been to many of the sites shown here.  They're beautiful!  However, they didn't include Newgrange, a rebuilt Neolithic tomb which is older than the Pyramids, or the Book of Kells, a prime example of a medieval book.  I am really looking forward to returning some day and visiting more of the north.  These photos simply do not do the locations justice.

  • My husband and  I have been to Ireland twice for our 25th and 30th anniversary.  We are planning on returning in a couple of years.  

    Traveled all across the country, but there is always new places to see from the smaller towns to the larger cities. The people there are very friendly.

  • Makes me homesick, such beautiful scenery!!

  • Been to europe a couple of times before but never made it to the Emerald Isle, hopefully in the near future it would be nice to go do some traveling in Ireland, of course my first thing to do on my list would be to go check out Belfast area heard I might have some long lost relatives there, then work my way down to Co.Cork, it seems so much of Ireland is beautiful from pictures, and such that I'd probably just want to live there if I had the chance.(must be my Irish side).
