Drive through 5,000 years of history to discover Ireland’s rich and storied past.

Ireland’s east is a treasure house—sometimes literally so—of ancient sites. It’s a huge area, physically and temporally, taking in 17 counties and more than 5,000 years of history. So, in the words of the traditional Irish blessing, may the road rise to meet you and may the wind be always at your back.


Most journeys within Ireland begin in Dublin, the Republic of Ireland’s capital, known for its history, literary heritage, and craic—a word with a loose meaning encompassing fun, banter, and the pleasure of company, all of which can be found in Dublin’s many pubs.
