Visit Beautiful, Green Ireland

Visit Ireland's historic sites, green hotspots and luxurious spas.

| March/April 2006

  • Celtic crosses at Clonmacnoise
  • Slieve League cliffs
  • Tory Island home
  • Spa at the Delphi Mountain Resort

Ireland’s northwestern counties offer rugged green scenery, religious history, Stone Age sites and cutting-edge health centers. Stay at an organic farm, visit pagan and Christian spiritual centers, and indulge in holistic spas in this beautiful country of friendly people. Smoking is now banned in pubs, so you can enjoy a pint of Guinness and some music in clean air.

County Donegal

Historic: Step back into old Ireland on windswept Tory Island where the locals (population 175) still speak Gaelic and eke out a living fishing or painting “primitive” art. Tory’s elected king, Patsy Dan Rodgers, regales visitors with songs in the pub of the Tory Hotel. The island is also a seal and seabird sanctuary.

Natural: Hiking in the bracing sea air along dizzying drop-offs into the Atlantic at Slieve League, Europe’s highest cliffs.

Ancient: Presiding over boggy farmland near Ardara, the spectacular Kilclooney dolmen is expertly engineered with three stone slabs supporting a 20-foot capstone.

Eat and sleep: Not far from Slieve League, Donegal Organic Farm rents three flats attached to the farmhouse (run with hydroelectric energy).
