We think of rolling green hillsides and interesting accents – which both of these are true! Ireland is one of those unspoiled places on Earth that you need to see at least ONCE in your lifetime and twice if you can’t resist the urge to come back.
1. Visit The Cliffs of Moher
Dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean – a breathtaking experience.
2. Walk Through The Dark Hedges
Romantic, atmospheric, tunnel-like avenue of intertwined beech trees, planted in the 18th-century. Would anyone like to go for a walk?
3. Explore The Hexagons
An interesting sight to see! These polygonal column like structures, were formed around 60 million years ago when a volcanic rock flow experienced unusual rapid and erratic cooling.
4. Discover The Ballynoe Stone Circle
As with all ancient circles of stone we can only take an educated guess at their purpose, although a specific entrance and the large internal space suggests its use in ritual activity of some sort! But nobody knows and that is the beauty and mystery behind this amazing arrangement dating back to the Neolithic Age.
5. Find The Powerscourt Waterfall
Ireland’s largest waterfall 🙂 and it is quite beautiful too!
6. Hike Killarney National Park
A great place for a drive, bike ride, picnic or a hike. The whole place is riddled with little lakes to explore, surrounded by beautiful green lush mountains. The Ross castle (as pictured here) is also a wonderful place to catch a break and enjoy the beauty all around you.
7. Love The Atlantic Drive on Achill Island
Achill Island has it all! From the gorgeous views overlooking Atlantic Drive, long beaches to walk on at Keel and the ruins of the Famine Village at Slievemore – this is a wonderful place to explore!
8. Visit The Little Museum of Dublin
Great place to quickly go through the story of Ireland and Dublin in particular! There are some unique and amazing pieces and it is well worth a visit. The tour guides can be very funny and will make the whole tour very impressive.
9. Ride Through The Gap of Dunloe
Absolutely beautiful! Travel by motorbike to maneuver around the roads and enjoy the unspoiled mountains, lakes and stunning views! Perfect place for a mini picnic 🙂
10. Explore The Doagh Famine Village
A wonderful insight into Irish history! Explore the Hunted Rooms, Irish Wake, Orange Hall, travelers history and the Irish Safe House. Did we mention that there is also a beautiful beach within walking distance?
