Looking for a perfect Ireland wedding destination? Ireland is a uniquely beautiful country in north-western Europe with breathtaking landscapes and fascinating friendly people. This wonderful island which is also known as Emerald Isle attracts people from all over the world because it has a lot to offer: the gorgeous landscapes, the magnificent scenery, brilliant green hills and the lush green fields that cover the countryside, the majestic mountains, scenic beaches, and dramatic cliffs, charming villages, unique botanical gardens, lovely castles, ancient abbeys, and historic ruins.
Ireland’s geographic isolation has helped it to develop a genuinely rich heritage of culture and traditions. The island has been inhabited since the stone age and much evidence of the past still remains — ancient pre-historic sites many of which are older than pyramids of Giza or Stonehenge, Celtic monuments and manuscripts, thousands of medieval castles and monasteries. In fact, history is everywhere.
Ireland has a mild temperate maritime climate which is influenced mainly by the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Stream. The weather is changeable and it often rains but still, the country has many fine summer days and there are no extreme temperatures.
There are 3 main airports in Ireland: Dublin, Cork, and Shannon. Finding a flight to Ireland is not a problem because most airlines offer routes that will take you to your destination wedding in Ireland with a 6-hour overnight flight from the East Coast of the US.
