About Ireland

Ireland Flag
The map shows Ireland, the 'Emerald Isle' in the North Atlantic Ocean west of Great Britain. The Republic of Ireland occupies approximately four-fifths of the island's area, the remaining one fifth belongs to Northern Ireland, a province of the United Kingdom.

Ireland is one of the British Isles. The Irish Sea and the North Channel separate Ireland from Great Britain; the body of water in the south between Ireland and the European mainland is known as the Celtic Sea.

The nation has one land border, the Republic of Ireland–United Kingdom border, sometimes referred to as the Irish border, which separates the Republic of Ireland from Northern Ireland. Ireland shares only maritime borders with the United Kingdom.

Several mountain ranges surround Ireland's plains in the center. Carrauntoohil in the MacGillycuddy's Reeks mountain range in County Kerry is the highest mountain on the island at 1,038 m.
Ireland's largest river is the Shannon, with a length of about 386 km it is also the longest river in Ireland and the British Isles. On its way to the sea the river creates three large lakes: Lough Allen, Lough Ree, and the largest: Lough Derg.

With an area of 70,273 km², the Republic of Ireland is slightly larger than twice the size of Denmark, or somewhat larger than the U.S. state of West Virginia.

The Republic of Ireland has a population of nearly 5.0 million people (in 2019). The capital and largest city is Dublin. The national language is Irish; spoken languages are Irish and English.
