Ireland is as enchanting as its nickname, "the Emerald Isle". Nestled into the North Atlantic on the edge of Europe, the country attracts millions of visitors yearly with its beautiful natural landscapes and hospitable culture. Ireland has a relatively small population of just under 5 million, and its largest city is also its capital city, Dublin. Irish culture is very unique and dates back to ancient times. Today, the Irish language is still spoken by some residents in the country. The Irish flag, which is made up of green, white, and orange stripes, is one of the most recognizable flags in the world.
