Cyprus is a beautiful and historically fascinating island with a climate as warm as the welcome you'll receive from its hospitable people. It's an obvious choice for visitors from Ireland. The magnificent Troodos mountains dominate western Cyprus, and the fertile plains below provide fruit and vegetables ripened to perfection. For fabulous beaches, the east coast of Ayia Napa offer the best. Limassol offers dark sand and pebble beaches and watersports. Shopping is excellent in all the main resorts where you can buy gifts of Lefkara lace, jewellery, Cypriot Delight and pottery. The nightlife is lively, ranging from clubs and discos to the more traditional folk dancing and bouzouki nights.
