    Visiting Ireland is A Breath of Fresh Air

    By Dawn Rainbolt, Marketing Executive

    This month, America has begun dismantling the Climate Action Plan and eliminating restrictions on energy, London was on a high pollution alert, and Paris is restricting the number of cars entering the French capital. So, where is that elusive fresh air?

    Why in Ireland of course!

    Ireland isn’t called ‘the Emerald Isle’ for nothing. Last week, Ireland voted to become the first country to strip the use of public funds for fossil fuel use, likely to be passed into law in upcoming months.

    So if you’re looking for a breath of fresh air, look no further! Ireland’s untainted air flows right off the Atlantic Ocean, and high winds usually blow off unwanted pollution.

    Why don’t you welcome the freshness of spring in Connemara? Trade in the din of city noises for the crash of waves against the coast. Replace stale urban air with the scent of new flowers in bloom. Discover the quartzite mountaintops of the Twelve Bens, and bask in the quiet air of Killary Harbour, Ireland’s largest fjord, as you enjoy the gentle May breeze.

    Or, consider enjoying Ireland’s fresh air in the Burren. World-renowned for its rugged, grey limestone landscape, the Burren also sports a rich, colourful flora. Feel the ocean breeze along the Cliffs of Moher and explore the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) communities that hug the rocky Aran Islands. What better place to spend your summer than in a country with some of the cleanest air in Europe blowing straight off the Atlantic?

    Now – it’s time to get to Ireland and breathe easy.
