Explore wild and enduring Ireland
Unlike many of the world’s precious gems, emeralds do not need to be held under a microscope to be considered flawless. Rather, they are expected to be imperfect and still prized for their indescribably glossy and vibrant signature hue. The same can be said for the ‘Emerald Isle,’ with similarities far beyond the namesake color palate. From the 900-miles of wind-battered coastline to the surreal wedge tombs of Burren, to the dank, dark pubs of Dublin, the Irish have never pursued perfection. Rather, this lyrical island is built on interest, drama and color.
Still, it’s best not to think the brooding landscape means a lack of playfulness, because the Irish are some of the world’s warmest, wittiest people. Nowhere is this more evident than in Ireland’s cities and villages— including the indubitably expressive Dublin. In this capital city, locals go out of the way to make you feel welcome (hint: it usually ends with Guinness). But Irish hospitality is not just reserved for the animated capital. It’s found everywhere from small fishing villages to luxurious castle estates. This good-natured spirit and endless natural beauty do indeed make Ireland a diamond (or emerald) in the rough.
