Ireland is a small, independent country located at the very western edge of Europe.
Dublin is the capital and the largest city. The country occupies about five-sixths of the island of Ireland. The remaining one-sixth of the island is occupied by Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. The capital of Northern Ireland is Belfast.
Many people consider the Irish warm-hearted and friendly. The Irish also have a reputation for hospitality, close family ties, and skill as writers and storytellers.
Ireland’s nightlife is world-renowned. From cosy country pubs to lively city nightclubs and cafes, there is something for everyone here. The pub is still the centre of the Irish nightlife and is a great place for talking, meeting people, catching up on some local gossip, eating, drinking and generally having a good time.
Traditional pubs are still the most common type in the country with the basic pleasures of good beer, good conversation and few frills. Local musicians often play at such places, so if that is what you are after it is usually worth asking round.
