Ive been there(Irish American here) and I loved. I didnt visit many of the big cities becuase, lets face it, youve seen one major nodern city youve seen them all. The country side of Ireland is beautiful and seeming endless although people tend to drive very fast down the center of the small roads instead of to one side.Go there if u get the chance

I don't know much about it... never been there...

I know it looks beautiful, I've heard people are friendly, and drinking is pretty popular lol

I do feel this discrimination against Irish sometimes, this... vibe whenever Northern Ireland is mentioned. I don't know much about that, but it all feels rather tense.

It seems Ireland takes sports pretty seriously and enjoys it thoroughly

I don't know a thing about the military, I just heard it took part and WW2, and is overlooked like many of the allies in the struggle. Other than that, though, I don't know anything else Ireland has done with her military.

A good part of my blood line apparently came from Ireland too.

Well, those are some perceptions from a Kansas yankee.

I haven't been to Eire yet, but I would really like to spend there a week or two. I like the music and the food, especially the liquid one
