Monday, 15 February, 2021

Surf crashing on jagged cliffs. Colorful houses clinging to the curves of a twisty village street. Broad green expanses reaching toward the horizon. The friendliest of sheep. Ireland delivers images that fire up the imagination and beg for stories to be told.

We’ve collected 16 Instagram accounts — from photographers, artists, chefs, and other creators — to whisk you away to that green, green island in the Atlantic. Cheers!

The Emerald Isle is just as pretty and magical as you imagine it to be. Green landscapes beg you to take long rambles through the countryside. Then the pub beckons with good food, warm conversation, and lively music.
We've got the makings of a cozy evening for you: a collection of atmospheric stories to transport you to western Ireland, a comforting bowl of Irish Stew, and a hot-from-the-oven slab of Irish Soda Bread with butter.
It's a well-known fact around the world that you can't really go wrong with potatoes and butter. These Irish boxties are a simple, hearty riff on that adage: tender-crisp pancakes that taste of rebellion and love.
This weekend, you're invited to a destination wedding on an island off the coast of Ireland. Pretty people, blue skies, crashing surf, open bar, love in the air, and... oops! a little murder at the wedding reception.
