From 2008-2010 Annette and I spent our holidays in Ireland, we did some tours through the country and were very impressed. Songs, history, tradition and the modern Ireland are worth to explore this beautiful country.
But be careful: They really have great story-tellers, do not believe every astonishing thing they tell you.
Most time it's a lovely weather there (it rains only six or seven times a day) and the people are very hospitable.
On the next sites you can see a collection of pics of our tours through Ireland:
We had each year a stay near Ballybofey (County Donegal) and did some trails on horse through the lovely countryside there. Maybe you are interested too, here ist the adress:
