Roscoff has always been a quaint fishing town but was later developed into a port in 1973 due to its strategic location on the Brittany coast and to help the development of the Brittany economy. Roscoff is well connected to UK and Ireland and thereby aids the development of tourism and revive the traditional trading routes between them.
Roscoff is a charming little seaside town with 16th century granite houses, small specialist shops and bars and restaurants. Roscoff is a perfect place to be to if you like to enjoy a quiet holiday by the seaside, as the town maintains a relatively low key apart from the old harbour and the rue Gambetta.
Roscoff benefits from a mild climate throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream and also because it is shielded by Ile de Batz island. Some of the attractions in Roscoff apart from the beautiful beaches (one of the best is the Laber beach about 1Km away from the old harbour) are the Jardin Exotique (the tropical garden), Notre Dame de Croatz Batz (church) and the Aquarium.
Brittany's sea is known for its healing properties and hence a visit to the region's oldest Thalassotherapy centre established in 1899 is worthwhile.
Ireland is rightly one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations. With a majestic countryside and vibrant modern cities full of culture and life, Ireland really is a dream destination.
Take a ferry to Ireland to discover a country that embraces its heritage and a new, vibrant culture. The countryside is beautiful and is criss-crossed with silver streams, lazy rivers, hidden lakes and peaceful canals. It has a vibrant and dynamic capital, Dublin where some of the friendliest locals and the greatest nightlife in Europe will ensure you have an unforgettable time.
Now that the political troubles of the '70s, '80s and '90s are behind it, Ireland is growing in popularity with ports like Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Rosslare and Belfast (in Northern Ireland) being the gateway to the country that is known as the 'emerald isle' because of its lush greenery.
Throughout the country, there is trout and salmon fishing for anglers. Canals, rivers and larger lakes can be explored from the banks or from hired boats. You are never more than 80 miles from the sea and a coastline offering golden, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, hidden harbours and bays. The Irish countryside is also famous its winding roads and pretty cottages. Getting lost in the Irish countryside can truly be a pleasurable experience!
