Reasons to love Ireland
U2The reason I wanted to come to Ireland, Dublin was U2. Amazing music with amazing lyrics... Come to Dublin and you can see where Bono lives, go to their recording studio in Dublin 1. Use this Google Maps guide to see U2-related sights from AT U2
LeprechaunsWhat are leprechauns? Have you seen any of them? I did! On St Patricks's Day Parade in Dublin. Great and mischievous creatures. Make great costume ideas for St Patricks's Day.
Irish accentsSo sexy and so hard to understand some of them. Top 3 accents are Cork, Donegal and Kerry accent. Listen to the accents here.
Irish sheep Everyone loves sheep. Take a tour or go by car around the Island. They are so innocent and at the same time stupid. Make great sweaters and jumpers and cheese. Still remember one from Donegal, Malinbeg. If you want to meet one go for Farm Holidays. It's another way to experience a close encounter with sheep is to take an Irish Farm Holiday. There are hundreds of such farm holidays available in Ireland.

Emerald Isle - Emerald Isle is the poetic name for Ireland due to its green countryside.
Green grass Ireland is known as an Emerald Isle. Why? Because it's full of green grass and when I say green. I really mean green all year around. It is called Emerald Isle because of its beautiful green country side, farmlands and pastures.
Irish megalithic tombs Ireland is full of these impressive historical monuments. In Ireland there are four types of megalithic tombs: Court Cairns, Passage Tombs, Wedge tombs and Portal Dolmens. Visit Newgrange, Kilmogue, Co. Kilkenny, Poulnabrone in the Burren, Co Clare and Knockeen, Co. Waterford.
Celtic symbolsCeltic symbols are exquisite. Celtic symbol meanings are quite hard to explain because there are minimal known surviving written records of indicating specific Celtic symbol meanings. The most famous standing crosses are the Cross of Kells, County Meath, Ireland; Ardboe High Cross, Ardboe, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland; the crosses at Monasterboice, County Louth, Ireland; and the Cross of the Scriptures, Clonmacnoise, Ireland. The Celtic cross is often made of stone.
