The 10 Best Views in Ireland

A year ago today, I was in Ireland. I can’t believe time flew by so fast! I thought I’d do a quick #TBT (throw back thursday) post of Ireland since I’ll be heading to Northern Ireland in about a week! Here are some of the 10 best views in Ireland that I got the chance to see while there. Talk about giving a gift to your EYEBALLS and your soul.  Hopefully this excites you to go to Ireland. It’s a magical country and I can’t wait to go back!

1.  Cliffs of Moher

This is one of the more obvious stops, but it’s just as awesome as everyone says! We climbed over the barrier (my mom freaked) and got pics off of this ledge. #REBELS

2. The Gap of Dunloe

We took “jaunting carts” aka cart with horse through the Gap of Gunloe. This was one of the highlights of my trip by far.

3. The Aran Islands

Here’s my sister and I in our Aran knit sweaters we bought on the islands. The views off of the cliff were incredible.

4. The Burren

This is the rockiest part of Ireland with many old rock structures made thousands of years ago.

5. The Ring of Kerry

We took a tour bus around the Ring of Kerry and LOVED it. Literally the entire day is filled with stunning views you can’t put your camera down!

6. Top of the Guinness Factory in Dublin

This gives a 360 view of Dublin! Below is my sister with a Guinness because I didn’t take pictures at the top…I was too busy drinking my complimentary Guinness!

7.  View from the plane landing in Shannon, Ireland

Iphone photo! I looked out the window when we finally landed and DIED over this view.

8. Oughterard, Ireland

We stayed in this small bed and breakfast in this small town. All of the small towns are amazing, but I really enjoyed this peaceful lake in all the greenery!

9.  Irish Farms

Irish farms are like nothing I’ve ever seen. INCREDIBLE. Photos can’t showcase them and I certainly can’t describe them. You have to see it to believe it!

10. Castles and Abbeys

This is Kylemore Abbey, one of my favorite structures in all of Ireland. We stopped at about 1,000 castles and abbeys and they never get old! If you can climb to the top of them the views are incredible!
