Ireland

A green country, vast extents, meadows, hills, cliffs, and beer ! Ireland is a mysterious country full of surprises.

This country is traditionally divided into 4 provinces, one of which is partly owned by Northern Ireland. The most popular cities on the island are its capital Dublin but also Cork and Galway, where you can find the Irish spirit. But it is above all the landscapes made of green countryside and Atlantic cliffs that attract travelers.

Leinster and its rich history

Leinster is the largest province in Ireland and is the region of Dublin, the capital. With the Liffey River quays, its famous bars and cobbled roads, Dublin is undoubtedly a city that must be visited to discover Irish culture.

There are also many castles, such as the impressive Kilkenny Castle. Inland, Leap Castle, a typical Irish castle, makes it easy to imagine the many clan stories that have taken place there.

Finally, you can also see the ruins of the Black Castle in Wicklow, where you can enjoy a superb view of the Irish Sea. In the same county, the Wicklow Mountains and their national park are a great destination for hikers.

Munster, Ireland of the cliffs

It is in this province that the most famous cliffs of the country are located: the Moher cliffs. Further south, the natural stone bridges of the Bridge of Ross cliffs offer a unique landscape.

In the same region, the Dingle Peninsula offers a superb view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is also home to Killarney National Park, the first and largest in Ireland. Thanks to its rich fauna and flora around its lakes and mountains, a hike in this park allows you to connect with the Irish nature.

For travellers who prefer the cities, Cork is a must-see, especially for its castle and cathedral. In Cork County, you can also visit the city of Cobh and its colourful houses.

Connacht, the wild Ireland

In this region, the city of Galway is known for its colourful and cobbled streets. It is in the county of the same name that Connemara, which inspired Michel Sardou, is located. How can we not fall in love with this wild nature swept by the winds ?

There are also many islands in Connacht. The Achille one and its large green spaces will seduce travellers looking for the typical Irish countryside. You can also visit the much smaller island of Clare, a mountainous island sparsely populated which invites to hike.

Ulster and its green landscapes

Most of this province does not belong to the State of Ireland but to Northern Ireland. Ulster is famous for its green landscapes and hiking.

For example, the Slieve League marine cliffs, the highest in Europe, are located in the northwestern part of the province. This site offers magnificent hikes with an extraordinary view. For less steep hikes, Lough Eske Lake, near the town of Donegal, is ideal.

Finally, less popular, the Inishowen Peninsula is a must-see for its white sandy beaches, green vegetation and azure blue water.

It is well known that Ireland is a rainy country. The sunniest months are May and June, followed by the hottest summer months.

Winters are cold and very humid, especially around Cork and Galway.

📍 Killary Fjord, County Galway and County Mayo
When the roads around Connemara stretch out for miles like this, there's simply nowhere we'd rather be and there's definitely no job we'd rather be doing
.
Marking the natural boundary between the counties of Mayo and Galway, Killary Fjord provides some of the most impressive scenery along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way. Coming from the Galway side, you'll have travelled through the heart of Connemara, a Gaeltacht region where Irish language is at the forefront of everyday life. Arriving at the fantastic Killary Sheep Farm, you'll be met with views like this across the fjord to Mweelrea in Mayo, the highest mountain in the province of Connacht

📍Cliffs of Moher, County Clare
The highest point of these famous cliffs - they rise to 700ft just north of O'Brien's Tower which you can see here (if you really look carefully) perched atop the cliff-face. Even if you don't catch the cliffs bathed in sunshine like this, don't let that put you off making the trip. Advice that holds true no matter where you travel in Ireland - if the weather is bad and looks like ruining your day, ignore it and stick to your plan. Our weather changes in an instant and some of the best scenery can be captured when the clouds look menacing
.
And when it comes to capturing the Cliffs of Moher at their most spectacular, the time of day really makes a difference for that all important photo opportunity. Obviously enough, the time of day will dictate what kind of lighting is available and, in general, you might be best waiting until the late afternoon to capture the classic view of the cliffs looking down towards Hags Head. In the morning and early afternoon, that side of the cliff-face tends to be covered in shade while this angle here, looking towards O'Brien's Tower, gets bathed in light - either that or it's all bathed in fog and sea-spray no matter where you look but that can make for a great picture as well!! .

When was the last time you crossed the Ha’Penny Bridge?

Did you know ’The Ha’penny Bridge’ got it’s name because until 1919 to cross it there was a half-penny charge.⠀

It was built in 1816 and was one of the earliest cast-iron structures of its kind. It is a single span structure with cast iron railings and decorative lamps. It was originally named the Liffey Bridge but is now called the Ha’penny Bridge.⠀

📍Stradbally, County Waterford
You'll find delightful little villages like Stradbally dotted all around in Ireland - in fact Stradbally comes from the original Irish 'An tSráidbhaile' meaning 'the street town' (a town with just one street) and the County Waterford example is certainly not unique in that sense
.
Similarly, you'll find many gorgeous thatch cottages just like this one but even though they may not be unique, it's impossible not to fall in love with these incredible examples of Irish architecture. This early 19th century example is one of our favourites and Waterford is a great place to start looking if your dream home looks a little something like this!!

📍Ring of Kerry, County Kerry
The Ring of Kerry driving route is undoubtedly popular and it has been for a long time. In fact, it's not too much of a stretch to say that it's the original star of Irish tourism - something that can be both a blessing and a curse. Given the usual ebb and flow of popularity, the Ring of Kerry is sometimes criticised for being too popular and over-visited with plenty of other suggestions forthcoming for similar driving routes that are 'less crowded with tour buses'
.
It's simply not true - the Ring of Kerry is home to some of the best scenery in Ireland and it's absolutely possible to get off the beaten track and experience some wonderful views. Granted, plenty of visitors want to experience the Ring and that can lead to some popular spots - particularly in the areas around Killarney but it's a roughly 5 hour driving route and that means there are so many places that you can depart the main route and explore to your heart's content
