Two weeks travel of Ireland of places YOU MUST VISIT
Ireland is an extremely beautiful country that will keep you busy for several weeks exploring. This page depicts my two weeks travel of Ireland of places YOU MUST VISIT of the most beautiful and exotic sights making this a trip of a lifetime!!
Dublin, the capital of Ireland, is famous for its Pubs, the colorful buildings and the lively music played in the streets. While visiting Dublin, check out Kilmainham Gaol, that housed famous political and military Irish leaders who spoke out against the country.
Trim Castle, just an hour’s drive north of Dublin, Ireland, is by far the best historical castle in Ireland, tours take you inside, wild blackberries grow feet away from the castle, the countryside around is spectacular and even the famous River Boyne runs through its landscape. This is the Number One Castle in Ireland to visit!!
Belfast Castle in Northern Ireland boasts magnificent beautiful gardens and a wonderful nature trail hike up Cave Hill overlooking the City of Belfast. Flowers abound in the hills, and the top of this countryside you can view where the Titanic left on her first part of her journey on her way to the City of Cobh before leaving to America on her fateful voyage.
The Dark Hedges, the famous crooked trees in Northern Ireland, as seen in the Game of Thrones, is a fairy tale looking road with overhanging branched trees planted centuries ago. Be sure to get here early before the crowds early in the morning!
Do not overlook Northern Ireland, which has the most breathtaking scenery you’ll ever see in a lifetime such as Carrick-A-Reed Rope Bridge and The Giant’s Causeway. These two locations in my opinion is the absolute best natural scenery in all of the Irish Island!! Make sure you spend at least three to four hours in each location to take in the beauty.
Grianan of Aileach Ring Fort is A MUST and visiting this place just after sunset and walking on top its structure, you can feel the energy coming from the stones onto your body. Get here, insert your business card into one of the loose stones, and enjoy an early evening of wonder!
Make sure you visit Dunlewy Church (abandoned and no roof) and Moyne Abbey. These are some of the very cool ruined structures in Ireland. You can walk inside these buildings for free, and wonder what it was like living in these places.
The Cliffs of Moher is the most popular cliffs in Ireland, rightly so. For even better cliffs and far less people, be sure to visit the Slieve League Cliffs. Slieve League is an enjoyable hike up the cliffs and then looking down at the deep blue waters.
Benbulben is a uniquely iconic Irish mountain similar to Monument Valley in Utah. Enjoy the road passing through here admiring the sheep and unique landscape backdrop!
The Silver Strand Horseshoe Beach, in Donegal Ireland, is by far the most unique and most awesome beach in all of Ireland! Enjoy the lookout on top looking down at the beach, the pleasant walk down its many concrete steps to a wide open and inviting beach that is covered with Limpet sea shells, brown sand and gorgeous waters.
Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetary is a fascinating sight of megalithic tombs!
Irish breakfasts of Ireland are the BEST! Make sure you visit one of the local restaurants for a great fantastic Irish breakfast meal!!
Croagh Patrick Mountain is a pilgrimage site where St. Patrick hiked to the summit barefoot amongst its rocky terrain. Take this challenging hike which can last four hours and enjoy the fresh air up at its summit, but be forewarned, you can easily get injured tackling this mountains’ summit and then descending from it!
Ashford Castle is the most preserved historical castle in all of Ireland. Visitors are able to sleep here, enjoy the castle’s amenities such as Irish breakfast, afternoon tea, hunting, fishing and walking around its many acred gardens.
Menlo Castle is a vine covered abandoned castle that’s in ruins but is a lovely sight to admire the plant growth all around it and inside.
A trip to Ireland would not be complete without visiting Dingle Peninsula and the beautiful Killarney National Park. Enjoy driving on narrow roads overlooking cliffs, see the friendly animals and admire the scenery all around.
Blarney Castle is very overrated, but its dungeon in the bottom part of the castle is a very meditating place as you put your self into the mindset of a trapped prisoner of its dungeon!
The Rock of Cashel, don’t waste money going inside, as the best view is from outside, and inside, nothing. Forget this place, but visit the historic Hore Abbey right beside it, where you can walk through, admire the stone building, say hello to the sheep in the hills and have a relaxing afternoon here.
