Sailing from the Cantabrian Sea towards the north, we find a large island dominated by the green. We mean the land of the Celts, a small country with a spotty recent history closely linked to economic swings. And nowadays a major destination for many Spanish. Welcome to Ireland, which from its resemblance could compare with Asturias, the country of the dark beer, the leprechauns and the four leaf clovers.
Ireland is a unique land, most of the country is agricultural but its economy (which grew at an unprecedented rate until the arrival of the global financial crisis) is now linked to manufacturing and especially the service sector. By its very low taxes, many large multinationals use the island as a business center for Europe. As it’s part of the EU has free trade agreements with other partner countries. It’s capital, Dublin, exceeds one million and a half inhabitants, while the other more populated areas barely reach 100,000.
As for transportation, Ireland has barely developed means of transport such as railways, that is highly centralized to Dublin. It has 4 airports of some importance, especially in the capital, Dublin (DUB) where a large numbers of passengers moves because it is the hub of some of the major low cost airlines in Europe. Maritime transport has great importance especially for the export and import volume of goods moving in the country, being the most important ports of Dublin and Cork.
