Top Tour Places in Ireland
I was wondering for a long time about the next destination I should visit. There are many places in the world but this time I wanted to head towards a place that is rich in both beauty and history. After long thoughts and scratching my head several times, I ended up with Ireland.
Yes, the Emerald Isle. I have taken a deep breath and Googled every interesting place I can visit. Though it was hard to end up with only some handful of places because Ireland is so beautiful that I do not want to miss anything. Holding my desires I landed with the places mentioned below.
If you are someone who is searching for some amazing tour places in Ireland then nothing can be better than the places mentioned below.
Cliff of Moher
If you are in love with mountains, seas, and greenery then Cliff of Moher must be your first place to visit in Ireland. It is the most visited attraction and you can surely understand the reason behind it once you wander around the cliffs.
These humongous cliffs have risen up from the swells of Arctic Ocean. The top of the cliff is covered with lush green vegetation which provides a wonderful picture of the Mother Nature. Beneath the cliff of Moher is Galway Bay.
If you are brave enough to reach the top of the cliffs then you can witness the amazing view of Aran Island out at sea. Moreover, you can even take beautiful pictures of the cliffs from any nearby location. No matter if you are far or near the Cliff of Moher are sumptuous from every corner.
If you are fond of W.B. Yeats poetry and romance then you should surely visit this place. It is a small town with medieval aura in it. You will still find arched stone bridges, 19th-century houses, and lichen-spotted abbey.
Not only this, but the beauty of this small town will even mesmerize you. This town is the best place to spend a reasonable time because our souls always search for tranquility every now and then.
However, according to my travel perspective, nothing can be better than this town in Ireland that will provide any city person a detox. In addition to that, there are even other natural beauties as well such as pebble beaches and the salt-sprayed town of Sligo Bay.
Killarney National Park
Our list of best places will surely be incomplete if Killarney National Park goes unmentioned. Amid all the natural beauty in Ireland, this particular place is a treasure. The wide range of wildlife and untouched green land is a beauty that Ireland can only offer you.
After visiting Killarney National Park you will feel as if you are viewing an image that is highly photoshopped. To be precise, its beauty is unbeatable that only watching it yourself will make you realize its significance.
While you walk around this national park be sure that you will witness species like red deer, primeval Oak, yew, kingfishers and ospreys. On the other hand, there are beautiful lakes and purple mountains.
The Rock of Cashel
No matter how the most hyped and later the controversial TV series Game of Thrones ended but it surely had some amazing castles in it. if you are a Game of Thrones fan (I doubt if you are after the ending) then you should surely head towards this place.
The Rock of Cashel has an early middle age look to it. This castle is situated high above the green hill of County Tipperary in the south. The whole site of Rock of Cashel was the fortress of Munster Kings and which later stood against the English invaders.
This particular location even has beautiful as well as haunting graveyards of Celtic stones. Moreover, this place speaks a lot about the Munster family.
How can we not mention the capital city? Moreover, this place in Ireland does not need any introduction though. It is a place that is well known to people all around the world for its Guinness fueled pubs and Georgian architecture.
Tourists are commonly attracted to this place due to the amalgam of culture and heritage, class and hedonism. If you set your trip in Dublin to the midway down then you will find the Irish Sea and then the Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.
Moving a bit further you will find Dublin Writers Museum that unravels about the lives of Yeats and Joyce. Furthermore, for a little refreshment, you can check out the Guinness Storehouse and Temple Bar Square for food and drinks.
Galway city remains crowded during the peak tourist seasons and the reason behind this is the Saint Nicholas Church. On the other hand, it is a port city and Ireland’s medieval trading had mainly taken place in this city.
This amazing city even speaks a lot about the history of this land and mainly about the merchant mayors. During the evening time, you will find fine entertainment here as street performers group up to show the tourist how wonderful is the culture of Ireland.
If you are planning to visit Galway city then design your plans during July because this is the apt month for the city’s art festival.
Visiting this castle should surely be on your list. It is a ruin that speaks a lot about the battles during the 1200s. There are some areas of this site that have been reconstructed. Moreover, the Blarney House is still standing on the side of the castle.
You can have a clear understanding of the whole castle while you take a walking tour. Many tourists skip visiting this site thinking that it is just a ruin and nothing can be very exciting.
If you even have the same thought then eliminate it because the less traveler and known places hold the best stories. Your trip to Ireland will surely be incomplete if you decide not to spend some time in this castle.
