Light, weather and magic
The Republic of Ireland borders in the north the Northern Ireland that is part of the United Kingdom, in the east the Irish Sea and in the south and the west the Atlantic Ocean. Although Ireland is situated in the west of Europe and has stormy coasts it is characterised by a mild climate. The ‘Gulf Stream’ also ensures mild temperatures during the winter and this provides for the lush green of the plains and hills throughout the year. However, the weather can be unsettled. A heavy shower is usually quickly followed blue skies and warm sunshine. The light, weather, vegetation and the often scenic coasts create a peculiar magic one can hardly evade. A holiday apartment or house in Ireland provides for an enchanting vacation.
The location of holiday apartments and houses in Ireland
The Republic of Ireland has around four million inhabitants. Its capital Dublin has a population of more than 500,000 followed by Cork with around 120,000 and Ireland’s third largest city Limerick has about 50,000 residents. Life in Ireland is mainly rural and takes place in the historic villages along the coast and in the heartland of the country. There is much space for nature between the few cities and small hamlets: Wild and romantic bays, tranquil lakes and river courses, wide pastures and park like landscapes. Next to all the beauties of nature the many ancient and medieval cultural gems such as druid stones, burial chambers, churches and ruins of numerous fortresses also entice visitors. Characteristic for many regions are the mansions which today are often used as hotels and restaurants. The locations of the Irish holiday apartments and houses are spread over the whole of the island and stretch from Achill Island in the west to Courtown in the east and from Glenree in the north to Dingle and Waterville in the south. There are also many holiday apartments and houses in the central County Shannon.
