I love all things travel. I love the thought of new adventure, new friends and new memories. One place I would love to be able to visit is Ireland! The pictures I've seen are breathtaking - if pictures are that amazing, I'm sure seeing it in person would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I've researched different things about Ireland and when I go (and if I get to spend quite some time there) these are just a FEW of the places that I would want to visit!
Cliffs of Moher
This one is a no brainer!! This attraction is known all of the world. If you don't go see the Cliffs of Moher while you are in Ireland, it's like not seeing the Statue of Liberty while you are in New York City. I mean just look at the picture!!! How could you NOT want to go see it?
Ring of Kerry
Which is actually the Iveragh Peninsula but called, "Ring of Kerry," to the natives. The Ring of Kerry is a winding road that leads you through Ireland's country side. There are many attractions along the way, including mansions, a 2,000-year-old wall of Ireland’s Leacanabuaile Ring Fort, rolling hillsides, small villages and more.
The Wild Atlantic Way
This is another drive I would want to take. It is from the north part of Ireland to the southeast (see map below). I mean imagine cruising with the windows down and taking in that view!!!
Climb Croagh Patrick
Also known as, Ireland's Pilgrimage Mountain - this mountain stands at 764m (2,507ft). It was named after the Patron Saint Patrick and is has been a pilgrimage destination since pre-Christian times. It would be amazing to say that I climbed a mountain in Ireland...but 2,500 ft is a doozy!!!
The Aran Islands
This is a group of 3 islands off the coast of Doolin and Galway. The islands are a poplar attraction due to the preservation of the Irish culture and heritage. Natives of the islands are bilingual and speak Gaelic and English. These islands have tons of historic monuments and sites including the Cliffs of Moher, The Seven Churches, The Worm Hole, The Black Fort and more!!
Needless to say, Ireland looks like a magical place to travel. I can't wait to see all these places!!!
