GotIreland.com is one of my favorite Irish websites online. Created and written by a fellow Irishman, Liam, who also now calls the US home, it is a fantastic place to learn about all the great things Ireland has to offer.
His logo is stunningly beautiful with intricate Celtic knotwork highlighting the lettering. I love how Liam describes his inspiration for creating his site:
“Sitting at home one night, reading some more negative news about
Ireland, I decided I wanted to do my part to put some good stuff about
Ireland on the web. Ireland has been kind of down in the dumps lately –
high unemployment, EU bailout, emigration – you get the message.”
So tired of all the doom and gloom about his homeland, Liam decided to do something. The Ireland of his childhood is a place to remember fondly, and he firmly believes that Ireland has not truly changed all that much. In his words…..
“Well, quite frankly, there’s enough about all that negativity online and
on TV. People at home and abroad need to be reminded of all the good that
Ireland has – our proud history, our music and culture, our resilience to
what life throws at us, our friendly welcoming nature and so much more.”
With posts on culture, music, travel advice, destination reviews, and photos of Ireland, it is a great resource for anyone planning a trip to Ireland.
And so if you are planning a trip to the Emerald Isle or if you just like to read inspirational stories and appreciate beautiful photos of the land of my birth, I highly recommend GotIreland.com as a site for all things Irish.
