Ireland

Welcome to Ireland, an independent nation state governed by a parliamentary democracy as the Republic of Ireland. Historically, the island of Ireland consisted of 32 counties, of which six remain as Northern Ireland, a separate nation within the United Kingdom. The bulk of the island, the 26 counties that form the Republic of Ireland, declared independence from the United Kingdom in 1919. Ireland is home to 4.75 million people, and approximately one-third of them live in Greater Dublin. Dublin is the capital and largest city in Ireland. Despite it’s size, the city is easily navigable on foot: you’ll walk along O’Connell Street and Grafton Street, through Trinity College, and across the River Liffey, see the Dublin Spire, visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and so much more.

Overview

Population: 4,696,141

Fun Fact: The Irish capital, Dublin, is home to over one quarter of the country's total population.

  • My experience with Walking Tree was fantastic. I was able to help plan as much of the itinerary as I wanted, something no other company but Walking Tree offered. Walking Tree continues to be the only program we endorse at our school, and for good reason. The service component at the orphanage, coupled with the cultural immersion in Mexico City and Guanajuato, made Mexico an overwhelming success. I'd highly recommend that teachers consider this unique custom opportunity with Walking Tree Travel.
