The Emerald Isle: 13 Stunning Ireland Discoveries

From cliffside ruins to rolling pastures and quaint, cozy villages, the stunning country of Ireland looks like something out of a storybook. Known as the Emerald Isle, Ireland has a rich and complex history, including Viking invasion, 800 years of English rule and over 30,000 castles and castle ruins.
