Tír na Meala

The Emerald Isle, a country full of surprises. One of the most surprising aspects is the contrast between the new country (the Republic as such is 75 years young) and the sense of history which permeates the country. Ireland is a country full of contrasts: on the one hand an old-fashioned love of tradition and a relaxed approach towards life which can be invigorating, on the other hand a 'high tech' society. It is no accident that many American computer firms have their European headquarters here. The high level of education (and a favourable investment climate) make Ireland an attractive country to live and work in.

Tourism is an important industry in Ireland and more and more people realise that the traditional hospitality towards strangers can be profitable in more than one sense. In the rural areas the more traditional attitude prevails. The Irish are interested in their visitors. Why do you come to Ireland? What attracts you in our country? And what do you think about .... ? The Irish love talking to people and they are really interested in your opinions.
