The western European island nation of Ireland is characterized by vast green plains, often enclosed by rolling hills. It lies immediately adjacent to Northern Ireland and is crossed by the island's longest river, the Shannon. Ireland borders both the Irish Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Culinary delights of the country include its national dish Irish Stew and the world-famous Guinness beer, which is offered in the typical pubs. The capital Dublin, located on the east coast, is known for its lively nightlife, which is mainly in the trendy Temple Bar district.
