Ireland
Kenmare, Ireland - Kenmare by the sea, nestles among the mountains of Cork and Kerry, hence its IRISH Name "NEIDIN" meaning "Little Nest" or "Little Craddle". The charming picturesque town is a good example of one of Ireland's planned towns. It was founded in 1670 by Sir William Petty. His descendent William Petty-Fitzmaurice, 2nd. Earl of Shelbourne and 1st. Marquis of Lansdowne, commissioned the present design of the town which was completed in 1775.

Chosen by The Irish Tourist Board, the town is the first Heritage town in County Kerry. The Heritage Centre is located in the Courthouse where modern interpretative techniques are being used to recall it's history.

Craft people, both native and foreign, have found the area inspirational to their work. Designed and produced locally are Lace, Knitwear, Jewelry, Pottery, Wooden Crafts. Needlework, Weaving, Musical Instruments. Paintings and Smoked Salmon....read more about Ireland »

Dublin, Ireland
Dublin is now one of Europe's premier locations. Ireland in general has embraced the common European community but is still quintessentially Irish. Whether you visit Dublin for business or pleasure make some time to explore this wonderful city. It is both modern and energetic with its old traditions are all around.

Dublin's coastline, wild willful and rugged, can be explored by bus or train journey from the City Centre. The Irish people's Celtic heritage thrives in their creative spirit and love of music. The pubs around Dublin are full of life and everywhere you go you will experience the warmth, charm and gentle humor of the inhabitants of this tiny land with a turbulent history.

Dublin founded in the 9th Century by the Vikings is split in two by the River Liffey and hosts great rivalry between the inhabitants on both sides of the river. The two main bridges are O'Connell Bridge and the Ha'penny Bridge, so called because of the toll which used to be charged to cross it. O'Connell Bridge takes you to O'Connell Street home of the historic General Post Office...read more about Dublin, Ireland »


If you have a choice about when to make your first trip to Ireland, November would not be at the top of anyone's list. And yet it was in November that my Aer Lingus flight from London began its slow descent into Dublin airport. I was headed for Malahide, a seaside town five miles to the northwest of Dublin on the Irish Sea. But thanks to DART - the Dublin Area Rapid Transit, getting to Dublin was quick and easy.

My goal was Trinity College, where a lifetime's dream was about to be fulfilled: seeing a page of the Book of Kells. I say a page because the library turns a page a day, so that if you go every day, you will eventually see the Book in its entirety. To help you appreciate the background of what you are about to see, the library has a superb exhibition - The Book of Kells, Turning Darkness into Light - explaining how dedicated Irish monks expressed their faith by devoting their lives to the illumination of gospels, holy books, and books of classical antiquity....read more about Ireland »


Dublin, the capital of Ireland, is an ancient city, founded in 841 AD by Vikings. Its rise began much later, in XVIII century under the influence of the English Crown. Its no surprise that Irish Dublin looks a lot like many English cities with its division to business and commercial centers, with its fashionable districts with wide streets and houses of unmistakable Georgian style....read more about Dublin, Ireland »
