MORRISTOWN, N.J., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- People. Landscape. Culture. Ireland is proud of hers, which is clear from Part One of the video series Great Getaways, Ireland, from CIE Tours International. Also clear is that Ireland's people, landscape and culture exert a powerful pull on American travelers, many of whom feel a deep connection with the country. They love its people for their genuine welcome; its green landscape for its stunning and ever-changing beauty; and its culture for its generous helping of music and festivals, and its thousands of years of proud history.
In the video, you'll travel along a breathtaking tour that circles Ireland. The trip starts in Dublin, happily coinciding with the all-out celebration of St. Patrick's Day, and then wends its way south to Waterford for a fascinating look at the making of world-renowned Waterford Crystal. As on every CIE Tour, between stops travelers relax in a comfortable coach, which is driven by a combination bus driver, tour guide and all-around wealth of knowledge for local stories, customs and quirks. In the video, you'll be drawn to Ireland's rolling green hills, fluffy white sheep, breathtaking waterways and cliffs, and pubs full of friendly folks just waiting to welcome you with a "hello."
Says Peter Nash of Tourism Ireland, "As a destination, the great news for us is that we can showcase our diversity, north and south." As Nash says, the Irish are just waiting to extend a warm welcome to visitors to their "small and characterful island," and you can't do better than to visit as part of a CIE Tour, which offers over 20 itineraries - some long, some short, but all memorable - to the Emerald Isle.
