Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland Top 5s

This list of Ireland top 5 experiences and sights are not ranked by favourite, as it was hard enough to choose just 5.

1. The Dingle Peninsula

Driving into the peninsula is beautiful, but every kilometer further just continues to take your breath away. It makes you wonder how there can possibly be so many shades of green. The Slea Head Drive boasts a rich history and numerous fantastic view points of the coast and countryside.

2. Giant’s Causeway

Not only do you get to explore the absurd natural phenomenon of perfect hexagonal stones, but the walk along the cliffs above offers awe-inspiring views. The contrast of blue water and sky with the red stone of the cliffs and green grass coverage makes for amazing photos.

3. Connemara National Park

Connemara National Park Connemara National Park covers 2,957 hectares. The drive through the park takes you past scenic mountains, expanses of bogs, heaths, grasslands and woodlands. Connemara National Park remains on my bucket list, as the drive only gave me a taste of what I can only imagine to be a great adventure on its own. We stopped in the town of Clifden, originally to walk the Clifden Sky Loop, however time and weather were not on our side. We did stop at the Clifden Castle, which would have landed itself on the Ireland top 5 on its own.

4. Gap of Dunloe

The Gap of Dunloe certainly makes you believe that leprechauns and faeries could exist. With five lakes, some so still they create a perfect reflection, waterfalls, stone bridges and very little evidence that people have been there at all; the Gap of Dunloe is a must do hike from the Killarney area.

5. Irish Pubs

There is just something about the atmosphere in an Irish pub. Perhaps it is the snugness, the friendly patrons, the live music, the little bit of history but nothing beats an evening enjoying a pint with good company. To find a great pub, keep an eye out for where to locals go, the busier the better.
