Ireland has been a model of economic management having survived the 2008 recession and a boom in foreign investment and high tech production. It is still a quaint and romantic country full of fascinating history and populated by proud people.

Beautifully landscaped gardens, well preserved country estates, fine Irish Whiskey and literature lovers make Ireland a great destination.

Potatoes play an important part in its history and in current agricultural research and production.

Eleven percent of Ireland’s land area is forested and supports a vibrant, export-oriented industry.
