Ireland is deep green in colour with lashings of a dark blue sea. Brooding gothic castles and steep cliffs offer gaelic drama that bring to life the mysterious folklore. Ireland remains wild and untamed, personified in the mischievous dark hedges that attract so many tourists every year. Not to mention the wildness of Donegal, the mountains of Mourne, the world-renowned panoramic views of counties Kerry and Cork, and the Causeway Coast.
The incredible basalt columns of Giants Causeway are a UNESCO world heritage site, these incredible formations are a wonder the world over, their hexagonal shape is said to have been caused by cooling lava. To get to the stunning site you can cross the Carrick-a-rede rope that is connected to two, verdant green cliffs. At sunset, this scenery is breath-taking. The dark hedges is a famous scene that many may recognise from Hollywood films, these thick trees have grown to meet each other, hanging over the road in an arch, like a churches steeple. The trees are so thick that they restrict light and produce an eerie display. The Ring of Kerry is a stunning and scenic drive along the coastal route of Ireland, past dramatic cliff faces, waterfalls, castles and grassy peaks. In the towns you can learn about history by visiting the Titanic Experience in Cobh and the Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin.
To feel as though you are at the end of the world, visit the cliffs of Moher can be seen by standing on them and looking out across the sea to the sprawling cliffs or from a boat looking up to their impossible height. You can end your exploration of Ireland in a cosy pub in Dublin or Belfast with a pint of Guinness as you listen to a local, Irish folk band.
