When you dream of Ireland

When you dream of Ireland, do you see the rugged hills of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way, where wild horses roam beneath brooding skies?

Or do you dream of immersing yourself Irish culture and exploring an island of ancient monuments, medieval castles and iconic round towers occupy your mind?

Maybe you’re tapping your toe to a jig in a traditional pub? Or tasting the salt-infused air on a golden beach, walking amid stunning mountain ranges warmed by the Irish sun?

While, right now, no-one can travel to Ireland, you can still be spellbound by some of the island’s magic with this stunning short film, which captures the beauty of Ireland’s unspoilt landscape, the lyricism that has made the country a giant of the literary world,  and the hearts and minds of travellers all over the world.

The poem in the film called I Will Return recounts a heartfelt promise:

“I will return into her arms”.

“Wandering lanes and rugged cliffs and fields laced with streams, will still be there after I awake, but for now they are in my dreams.”

You may not be able to be there right now, but Tourism Ireland hopes you hold Ireland in your imagination and picture the days ahead when you can experience firsthand the island’s wondrous charm.
