Ravishingly beautiful and enchanting to explore, you'll soon learn why the Irish say if you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough… Visit the Ring of Kerry and unspoilt region of Western Ireland featured in John Wayne's 'The Quiet Man'. See the stronghold of the O'Donnell Clan and beautiful Dingle Peninsula, as well as Adare, one of Ireland's prettiest villages.
