5. Causeway Coastal Route
Welcome to what is rightfully known as ‘one of the world’s great road journeys’: the Causeway Coastal Route. Curving around the northeastern coast from Belfast Lough to Lough Foyle in County Derry~Londonderry, the journey takes you along imposing cliffs, by crystal-clear waterfalls and even into the path of a castle or two.
4. Ring of Kerry
Beginning and ending at Killarney, the Ring of Kerry sits in the beautiful surrounds of Killarney National Park – and when it comes to stunning scenery, this is one of the island’s most lauded spots, loved by National Geographic and Vogue magazines alike. Ladies View (named for Queen Victoria and her ladies), with its sprawling vistas of the Lakes of Killarney, stands in stark contrast to the craggy Atlantic coast and Skellig Michael. But both will take your breath away.
