Ireland

Ireland is a country with a small population which is located in the continent/region of Europe.


The Population of Ireland is 4,015,656 and the government is Republic. Low central plains, coastal mountains, large valleys, lots of rivers and lakes. Lots of bays, inlets and cliffs along the west coast and a much smoother coast on the east. The main River in Ireland is the Shannon river that is 344km in length and the longest in Ireland and one of the finest in Europe. The Atlantic Ocean is to the west of Ireland and the Irish Sea is to the east. However there are other seas around Ireland. St. George's Channel and The North Channel are at either end of the Irish Sea, and the Celtic Sea is part of the Atlantic, just south of Ireland.

The most popular Mountains in Ireland Of these, the most famous mountains in Ireland are The Sperrin Mountains, Slieve League, Slieve Donard, Mount Errigal, Macgillycuddy's Reeks, Wicklow Mountains, Great Sugar Loaf, Little Sugar Loaf, Mourne Mountains, The Bluestack Mountains, Dublin Mountains, Two Rock Mountain, Three Rock Mountain, Croagh Patrick.


Dublin, Ireland Dublin is The Capital of Ireland. The population of Dublin is 1,024,027. In the last 20 years, the Republic of Ireland’s capital city has transformed itself from a quiet, economically depressed, old-fashioned town into a modern, thriving, affluent, and youthful (around 35 percent of the city’s million-plus people are under the age of 25) European city. Ancient pubs, lively nightclubs, hundreds of live music venues, and elegant restaurants share rain-soaked sod with hundreds of years of troubled, painful, and fascinating history carved into stone. The National Gallery of Ireland review is the most popular thing to do in Dublin, Ireland. Pictures from the 14th and 20th century. Guinness Storehouse is for beer lovers they say it’s the Disneyland for people that loves beer.


Cork, Ireland The population is 198,582 Cork City is Ireland's third city (after Dublin and Belfast) and hasalways been an important seaport. It began on an island in the swampy estuary of the River Lee (the name Corcaigh means a marsh), and gradually climbed up the steep banks on either side. Today the river flows through Cork city in two main channels, so that you find yourself constantly crossing bridges and hence Cork City's coat of arms bears the motto 'A Safe Harbour for Ships'. University College Cork is a popluar school there and it also number 3 of the best thing to do in Cork, Ireland. The University has been there since 1845.

Health warning in Ireland Tickborne encephalitis (TBE) occurs in warmer months of the southern part of the nontropical forested regions of Europe. Leishmaniasis (coetaneous and visceral) is found, especially in countries bordering the Mediterranean, with the highest number of cases from Spain, where it is an important opportunistic infection in HIV-infected persons. Variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob cases have been reported primarily from the United Kingdom, although a few cases have been reported from other countries in Western Europe. Large outbreaks of trichinosis have occurred; outbreaks in France have been linked to horse meat. Measles outbreaks occurred in several European countries in 2006. Risk of hepatitis A is low, although sporadic outbreaks have occurred in developed countries. Highly pathogenic avian influenza virus H5N1 has been documented in wild birds or other avian species in several of the countries in Europe.


Climate and Clothing

Going to Ireland is very cold to what I am use to in N.C, Ireland temperatures get low as 4 degrees and the highest it is 18 degrees. The coldest months in Ireland are February and January when temperatures ranges from 4 degrees to 8 degrees. The warmest months are July and August and temperatures range from 15 to 20 degrees and some days it can be 22 to 24 degree and occasionally 30 degrees. In July and August it can get up to 18 hours of daylight and it truly does not get dark until 11pm. One thing you can be sure of about Irish weather is how little you can be sure of. It may be shirtsleeves and sunglasses in February, but winter woollies in March and even during the summer.


And then there’s the rain. Ireland receives a lot of rain, with certain areas getting a soaking as many as 270 days of the year. County Kerry is the worst affected. The southeast is the driest, enjoying a more continental climate.

Languages spoken in Ireland The Official Language of Ireland is English and Irish (Gaelic). It is a 50/50 languages in Ireland and there are not a Official Language.

Do’s and Don’ts in Ireland 1. Don't Forget the Basic Rule of Driving on the Left

Every year tourists are involved in major, sometimes fatal, accidents - simply because they are driving on the wrong side of the road. It cannot be emphasized enough: Drive on the left! But pedestrians should also remember that the first car likely to hit them when they step out into the road ... will come from the right! When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Don’ts Criticise Ireland. The Irish can find something or other wrong with just about every aspect of their country (the Church, the economy and politicians being the biggest bugbears) but don’t appreciate outsiders doing the same. Look horrified at the prices of things in the South. Eating out in particular can be very expensive but quality has improved massively in recent years and now dishes generally offer value-for-(a lot of)money. However many restaurants are trying to ride these tricky economic times by offering cheaper deals on weekdays, so be on the lookout.

Dos It is acceptable to stare and Gentle gestures. Go see a rugby game. Visit all the beer and wine factories. Rock climbing

Bram Stoker

Born: 1847 Birthplace: Clontarf, Dublin Nationality: United Kingdom, Ireland Religion: Anglicanism Professional: Writer, Novelist, Author Films: Brams Stokers Dracula, Count Dracula, Dracula Daughter Works: Dracula, Midnight Tales, The Man It was on the dark side of twilight when we got to Bistritz, which is a very interesting old place. Being practically on the frontier--for the Borgo Pass leads from it into Bukovina--it has had a very stormy existence, and it certainly shows marks of it. Fifty years ago a series of great fires took place, which made terrible havoc on five separate occasions. At the very beginning of the seventeenth century it underwent a siege of three weeks and lost 13,000 people, the casualties of war proper being assisted by famine and disease. Count Dracula had directed me to go to the Golden Krone Hotel, which I found, to my great delight, to be thoroughly old-fashioned, for of course I wanted to see all I could of the ways of the country. I was evidently expected, for when I got near the door I faced a cheery-looking elderly woman in the usual peasant dress--white undergarment with a long double apron, front, and back, of coloured stuff fitting almost too tight for modesty. When I came close she bowed and said, "The Herr Englishman?"
