Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic, separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel. Politically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland, which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, in the northeast of the island.

Irish culture has had a significant influence on many other cultures, and there are many famous museums in Ireland.
