While people all over the world have this weird desire to visit Ireland we just don't get it?

We live and work here and looking around is just depressing. There just isn't anything to see and the scenery is dreadful. 

Whatever you do don't even think about booking a flight here and if you are unlucky enough to end up here you'll probably be best off staying in your hotel room. 

What a complete non country....

1. The roads are all boring to drive on
