Save Place

Slea Head, Ireland
The roads in Ireland are incredibly narrow, and those in the western-most part of the Dingle peninsula at Slea Head are no exception. For those that are brave and set out with an adventurous spirit and good insurance coverage, views such as this...

1 Baile Na Gleanna, Inisheer, Co. Galway, Ireland
Inisheer (also called "Inis Oirr") is the smallest of the three Aran Islands, off the coast of Galway, Ireland. Before I went I was told by an Irish friend that it has a spiritual quality to it and it does: the quiet (that you can literally feel),...
Save Place
Castleholding, Co. Tipperary, Ireland
I had long been enamored of the stories swirling around the eerie Leap Castle in County Offaly. Notorious for being the most haunted castle in Ireland, Leap looms out of the rolling countryside, a crooked finger gesticulating at a leaden sky,...
Save Place
The Quay, Cloonmonad, Westport, Co. Mayo, Ireland

Lislorkan North, Liscannor, Co. Clare, Ireland
Fancy yourself a brave one, do ye? Aye, aye, then the Cliffs of Moher are right up your alley. Ireland's most popular tourist destination does not disappoint, though visiting during the middle of the day means you're going to have to share the...
Save Place
Clew Bay, Ireland
County Galways's Aran Islands are well known but Clew Bay a little further north in County Mayo has more than 100 islands. On one side of the bay, you can climb Ireland's holiest mountain Croagh Patrick, for bird's eye views of the bay from the...
