    What’s not to love about Ireland?

    As Irish star Liam Cunningham says – what’s not to love about Ireland!?

    Watch the Tourism Ireland video below as the A-list actor and former Game of Thrones star talks passionately about his homeland, and what he misses the most when he’s away from home #FillYourHeartWithIreland​ 💚  

    This video is part of Tourism Ireland’s #FillYourHeartWithIreland online campaign, sharing inspirational content about Ireland with its millions of fans and followers on social media who are unable to visit the country this year.

    See some amazing scenery and some of the area’s most popular attractions, like Galley Head Lighthouse, Sherkin Island, Glandore, Ross Castle, Clonakilty, Garnish Island, Gougane Barra, Mizen Head and Bantry House in County Cork, on the Wild Atlantic Way.

    In this Tourism Ireland video, Liam Cunningham praises Ireland, saying: “My favourite place in Ireland? Well, there’s got to be more than one, it’s a big place – or it’s a little place with a big heart. Two places, the Kingdom – Kerry, it’s heaven on earth – and beautiful West Cork. If they weren’t on the planet, the place probably wouldn’t be worth being in. What I love about Ireland is a no-brainer, it’s the people.”

    So, what do you miss most about Ireland? 

    What does Liam Cunningham miss most about Ireland when he’s away? The RAIN!

    The weather in Ireland is a big topic of conversation – You will more than likely experience four seasons in one day and different types of rain……. “It’s a grand soft day.” This refers to the good kind of rain – a gentle mist that makes our green landscape almost glow.  This rain is not to be confused with “a dirty old day” – which is the bad heavy rain.

    The weather here might try to disrupt your best laid plans but just pack for all seasons and enjoy everything that the land of “40 shades of green” has to offer.
