In winter, Ireland takes on a character of quiet and mystical reserve even more than it has during flourishing days of summer or the unsettled weather of spring and autumn. You catch a hint of this as daylight turns early to night in the cities ands towns. Once you get beyond them, though, the idea of Ireland as a land of legends becomes apparent in what you see around you every moment of every day.
