In the capital of Ireland all roads lead to… a pub – there are more than a thousand of them. Next to the capital, in the north, there is one of the most interesting Neolithic sites, dating back more than 5000 years old – the Newgrange cemetery. It is even older than the pyramids! Monasterboice with the famous Celtic crosses is also located nearby. Ireland is permeated with the easily perceptible atmosphere of magic and mystery, due to its marvelous Celtic monuments, breathtaking nature, singsong language, and the old traditions strongly echoing in the present-day life. The Irish, realizing the importance of symbolism, good craftsmanship, and historical heritage, are extremely fond of antique carpets and vintage rugs. All the more, Celtic art has made its way into the rug world in the form of fabulous vintage Arts & Crafts rugs which sometimes incorporate classic Celtic motifs. Typically ornamental, avoiding straight lines and only occasionally using symmetry, Celtic art often involves complex metaphors and symbols. It uses a variety of styles and exhibits influences from other cultures in the knot work, spirals, key patterns, lettering, zoomorphic themes, plant forms and human figures.

Practically no one is disappointed by what he or she finds on arrival: the misty green hills, the wild coastal cliffs, the Irish storytelling talent, their folk tales and the unhurried rhythm of life. The biggest surprise, however, is the enormous landscape diversity of this mesmerizing island. The limestone terraces of the bare, rocky Burren seem to come from a completely different part of the world than the fertile Tipperary plains. Looking at the beautiful pristine cliffs, coves and beaches of the west coast, it’s hard to believe that barely a few dozen miles divides them from undulating pastures in the inland counties. There are plenty of places worth visiting in Ireland. In the south, not far from the Cashel fortress erected on the St. Patrick’s rock, there is an intriguing city of Cork. The Kerry Circle is one of the most spectacular routes in Europe with breathtaking views of the small islets, the cliffs rising steeply into the sea and sandy, picturesque beaches. The magnificent Dingle peninsula, located the furthest to the west, is where you may encounter the Fungie dolphin who settled there for good and became a common tourist attraction. All these, among countess other things, one may experience in fantastic Ireland which is very like antique rugs and vintage carpets – beautiful, mysterious and absolutely unforgettable.
