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.

📍 Ross Castle, County Kerry One of the iconic views of beautiful County Kerry - the fantastic sight of Ross Castle which is surely one of the most instantly recognisable castles in Ireland . Situated on the edge of Lough Leane, just outside the town of Killarney, Ross Castle is one of the most popular castle tours in the country and for good reason. First and foremost, its location near Killarney means its absolutely perfect for a quick visit away from the town or as part of a full day tour around the Ring of Kerry. It also serves as the return point for boats cruising Lough Leane and the Upper Lake to Lord Brandon's Lodge, the end point of the wonderful Gap of Dunloe walk . . #ireland #irish #lake #wildatlanticway #kerry #castle #travelbug #ireland_gram #travel #visitireland #instaireland #discoverireland #nikon #tourireland #igtravel #tourismireland #bucketlist #yourwayireland #wanderlust #loveireland #instatravel #vacation #travelgram #irelandtravel #irishcentral #roadtrip #wanderireland #nikonD3400 ...

📍Kieran Street, Kilkenny There are few places in Ireland where historic intrigue and present day excitement are packed in quite as tightly as you'll find in Kilkenny . The Medieval Mile which runs through the heart of this historic city, parallel to Kieran Street, is the perfect example of this. It may just be a short stretch of road linking St Canice's Cathedral to Kilkenny Castle but it's well and truly packed with fascinating historic buildings such as Rothe House and the Tholsel alongside historic pubs which are just as entertaining today as they would have been hundreds of years ago. Start from either end of the Medieval Mile and explore to your heart's content . . #ireland #irish #irelandsancienteast #nikon #kilkenny #streetscape #medieval #ireland_gram #travel #visitireland #instaireland #discoverireland #tourireland #igtravel #tourismireland #bucketlist #yourwayireland #wanderlust #loveireland #instatravel #vacation #nikond3400 #travelgram #irelandtravel #irishcentral #roadtrip #travelbug #wanderireland ...
