DISCLOSURE — A big part of the enjoyment of travel is researching and discovering amazing places on our own. On this trip – like many others – we paid for all expenses, including accommodation, ourselves.
Dramatic, untouched landscapes. The freshest seafood of your life. Relaxed, friendly people. Locally grown produce. Sunsets that will blow your mind. Staggering clifftop views. If any of this sounds like your jam, it’s high time you visited Ireland. And if you can, I 100% urge you to explore Ireland by road (there’s a good chance you’ll be the only car in sight most of the time).
Basically, this is the ultimate guide to the very best views (ideally involving both cliff tops and sunsets over the Atlantic), staggeringly lush castles, scenic drives and plenty of locally made food in Ireland. I know that Ireland may not be the obvious choice for a vacation, but hand on heart, it was one of my favourite trips of this year. In an age where it no longer feels like anywhere really has a ‘low season’ anymore, it was a breath of fresh air to explore somewhere new, and often be the only person in sight.
