These calendars are beautiful with all sorts of great pictures of Ireland and little tidbits of information of the country. We have been getting the first calendar for a lot of years now and it is our favorite.
A place where magic thrives—in the land, in hearts, in history and heritage— Ireland stays with its visitors for a lifetime. 365 Days in Ireland is a magnificent tribute to the Emerald Isle, with hundreds of full-color photographs and lyrical text by novelist Colum McCann. Fishing boats in Dingle Harbor. The pastoral beauty of sheep-dotted meadows and whitewashed cottages. The rugged, rocky west coast of Inishmore. Medieval castles falling into ruin and ancient dolmens, mysterious relics of prehistory. Plus black-faced sheep, the cascading river Inagh, Ha’penny Bridge, and cozy pubs that serve up yeasty, dark pints and hearty Irish stew. This is Ireland, beautiful, spirited, and unforgettable.
The beauty and spirit of this magical land is captured in Gareth McCormack’s images, and paired with traditional Irish toasts.
It is Ireland’s timeless traditions of the land and its people that continues to hold the key to the country’s draw as a tourist destination. From its breath-taking countryside to its pulsating capital, Dublin, with a soul and sociability unique to the island, Ireland is certainly worth every effort made to explore it.
