Ireland – a place of stories, of adventures, of heroes and battles. Ireland’s myths reach back thousands of years, back to the age of the Celts. Yet still today they whisper through forests, adding mystery to some of the island’s most beautiful landscapes.
Rooted to the land, these tales are filled with epic characters that send the imagination soaring. Take a leap onto the incredible Giant's Causeway, created when Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn McCool) and the Scottish giant Benandonner dramatically fought each other. Let your emotions take over at dramatic Lovers’ Leap along Loop Head in County Clare. It’s here the mythical lovers Diarmuid and Gráinne jumped to safety after being pursued by an enemy army.
And be wowed by the ancient Lia Fáil, Ireland’s Stone of Destiny, at the Hill of Tara in County Meath. It’s thought to have been brought back from the underworld by the god-like Tuatha Dé Danann… legend has it that the stone shouted out when the true High King of Ireland touched it.
