      Totally agree with you, Karen. The countryside is everywhere beautiful. Thanks for the hint with Blarney Castle. That´s one place I was missing. We will cover it the next time. 🙂

  1. All of them look interesting to see but what most interested me here was 4,6 & 8! The monastery of Clonmacnoise is beautiful up against the river. I have not visited Ireland but will save this list for when I do.

  2. Only heard of a couple of these. Those stone circles sound so interesting. I wonder what the story is there, shrouded in mystery like stonehenge perhaps? Going to go look it up now! Very interesting post!

  3. Ireland is such a naturally beautiful country that it’s hard to just pick a few places as the best. The Cliffs of Moher would definitely be number one if I were to make a list like this too. It is absolutely breathtaking. I also visited the Burren in County Clare and it was also very beautiful.

  4. Oh wow. I had yet to make it to Ireland sadly 🙁 I just can’t wait to get there. So many posts like these with such beautiful photos make me that much more antsy!

  5. Your photos are just breath~taking love them and it makes me want to go to Ireland – sadly we have not been up there yet but it is on my list. I will for sure use this post as a reference when we get there. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Ja, ja, ja, ja! Alles super schöne Orte in Irland. Die Cliffs of Moher sind auch meine Nummer 1. Und die Wicklow Mountains liebe ich auch.
    Was ich auch noch richtig toll finde ist das Gap of Dunloe im Süden Irlands bei Killarney. Ach du schönes Irland. *verliebtbin*

      Hallo Janine. Wir haben das Gap of Dunloe bei Killarney noch gar nicht angeschaut. Sind zwar in die Richtung spaziert haben dann aber vor dem See umgedreht. War wohl ein Fehler. Das nächste Mal und danke für den Tipp. 😉

  10. Wonderful photographs! I once lived in Ireland and returned last October to promote my novel, “Dancing to an Irish Reel.” I spent ten days in the west ( Shannon to Claire to Galway, to Connemara, then back through Adare to Shannon. I accidentally came across Kilmacduagh Monastery near Gort. I hope you share pictures of the Abbey with your readers. This is a great page; I was thrilled to find you on Pinterest!
