Ireland's green hills, quaint villages, dramatic coast and vibrant capital call to people around the globe to visit again and again. Explore this land to which so many Americans can trace at least some of their ancestry. Ireland's rich and complex history helps to explain both the love many people feel for the Emerald Isle and why more people of Irish descent live outside its shores than within. Starting in Dublin, we'll explore the city immortalized by James Joyce, visit the ancient monastery at Glendalough and hear the music that pours into the streets on Temple Bar. Then we'll travel the southern counties through picturesque fishing villages, across valleys dotted with cottages and flocks of sheep, experiencing such places as Waterford and Cork. Finally, in the West of Ireland, burial place of ancient heroes and W. B. Yeats, we'll reach some of the last outposts of the Gaelic language which gave birth to the Celtic culture that still defines this modern nation.
