Ireland is an easy place to visit, with a famously friendly population. With the countryside of technicolor greens, cold Guinness and live music in homey pubs, the stark stone cottages of the Aran Islands, a slab of warm soda bread with tea on a rainy day. It’s an easy place to linger in, too. Each year, Ireland hosts millions of travelers: hikers, historians, bibliophiles and beer-ophiles, looking for a bit of the famous Irish craic.

We can tell you how to drink like a local, and how to dodge the tourist traps of Dublin. We can show you rural Ireland in photo essays and road trip narratives. You’ll feel the craic coming on already.
