    A top tourist attraction on the island of Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare are as dramatic as they are beautiful. This is one selfie you'll definitely want to post to the 'gram.

    If you prefer your attractions a little more off-the-beaten-track, then take the time to explore further up and down the Wild Atlantic Way. Secret beaches, remote islands and windswept peninsulas await.

    4. Dublin Coastal Trail, County Dublin

    The Dublin Coastal Trail is a ruggedly picturesque stretch of coastline that runs from Skerries in north County Dublin to Killiney in the south. There are any number of lovely selfie spots along the route, from Howth Cliff Walk to the cute seaside village of Monkstown. Don't miss Seapoint Beach at the latter, it's a popular sea swimming location that features a Martello Tower down by the shore.

    The best thing about this trail is how close it is to Dublin city! So after a long day of capturing seascapes on camera, it's just a short hop back into the city centre.

    Flowers and selfies go together like bacon and cabbage, so Ireland's gardens should be high on your list for capturing the perfect pic.

    Altamont Gardens in County Carlow is a lesser-spotted gem. The 16-hectare estate is home to native and exotic species of plants and trees, such as Swamp Cypress and Giant Redwood. There's also a lake and a river walk at this hidden oasis in Ireland's Ancient East.

    Say hello to the most southerly point of mainland Ireland! Mizen Head in West Cork stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean, offering some of the wildest views on the island.

    The walk across the Arched Bridge to the Signal Station is not for the faint-hearted, suspended as it is high above the waves. Your reward? The excellent Mizen Head Visitor Centre, which features exhibitions, a café and a gift shop.

    8. Killarney National Park, County Kerry

    A tourist hotspot – and for good reason – Killarney National Park in County Kerry is arguably the most photographable place in Ireland. Everywhere you look, there's a perfect backdrop for a selfie: the lakes of Killarney, Muckross House, Torc Waterfall, thatched roof cottages, the McGillycuddy’s Reeks, we could go on!

    Our personal favourite spot? That'll be the mighty yew tree at the centre of Muckross Abbey. Was the tree planted after building the abbey or was the abbey built around the ancient tree? Nobody knows for sure...
