The island of Ireland is of stunning natural beauty and rich in impressive historical buildings. We started our round trip with a rental car in Dublin, headed north first and and followed then the Wild Atlantic Way. Here are some places we liked the most.
The Wild Atlantic Way leading from Derry to Cork along the West coast of Ireland is the longest signed coastal route in the world. These pics were on the first stage in Northern Ireland. This is Dunluce Castle. We’ve been there in May when the gorse bushes were flowering and enjoyed fantastic weather and views on gorgeous landscapes.
Isn’t that an amazing view? This view to the Atlantic Ocean offers from Mussenden Temple at Downhill Demesne in Northern Ireland. Downhill House was a mansion built in the late 18th century surrounded by a spectacular park.
The Cliffs of Mother are usually pretty crowded. But following the trail to the South -away from the crowded viewpoint at the tourist centre- the Cliffs of Moher offer even more stunning views and lonely places to enjoy.
A path runs close to the edge and places along the way are breathtaking.
