Ireland is the most westerly country of the European Union, separated from Great Britain by the North Channel on the northeast and the Irish Sea on the east.
Ireland is an island of 84,288 sq. km (32,544 square miles).
Its greatest length is 485 km (302 miles), its greatest width 304 km (189 miles), and its coastline extends for over 5,631 km (3,500 miles).

The highest mountain is Carrantuohill (1,040 mtres/3,414 feet), near Killarney in County Kerry.
The longest river is the Shannon (370 km/230 miles).

 
The largest lake is Lough Neagh (396 sq. km/153 square miles) in Northern Ireland.

The country is divided into four historic provinces. Ulster (9 counties) in the north; Munster (6 counties) in the south; Leinster (12 counties) in the east; and Connacht (5 counties) in the west.

The population of the 32 counties of Ireland is approximately 5 million.

 


Climate

Winters in Ireland are mild and summers temperate due to the prevailing southwesterly winds and the influence of the warm waters of the North Atlantic Drift. Ireland has a mild climate all year-averaging 35°-45°F in winter and 65°-75°F in summer. May and June are the sunniest months with an average of over 7 hours of sunshine per day.

In my opinion, the wildest and most beautiful section of coastline is in Donegal between Glencolmcille and Ardara over Slievetooey mountain. Of this section, the highlight is Glen Bay looking towards Tor More stack, Ireland biggest sea stack.
