Our Top 13 Ireland Pictures

On November 16, 2013 by Oren and Cassie

Why our Top 13 Ireland Pictures and not our Top 10? Because 13 is my lucky number, so we’re going with a Top 13 Ireland pictures. Ireland is also 30% more beautiful than any place I’ve ever seen, so it gets 30% more photos.

13) Wicklow Cemetery

Our first stop outside of Dublin was Wicklow and the area’s beautiful hikes. There is an old cemetery near the start of the hike where we saw headstones that are hundreds of years old.

12) Fethard Castle

We took a few detours on our way to Kinvara to see some small Irish towns, including Fethard. The entire town feels Medieval, especially the castle which sits right on the river. Of course, the fact that it was fall and all the leaves were changing colors made everything even more beautiful.

11) Rainbow, Rock of Cashel

It’s not everyday you get to see a rainbow, unless your’e in Ireland. A rainbow appears after every rain, and it rains a lot. We saw this one during our visit to the Rock of Cashel. Of all the rainbows we saw, this was brightest.

10) Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland

Big cliff. Tiny Oren. Nothing else to say.

9) Dusk over Kinvara

We fell in love with the small town of Kinvara about 30 minutes south of Galway. As the sun was setting, we snapped this picture over the water.

8) Bellycarbery Castle, Ring of Kerry

We intentionally took quite a few detours while navigating the Ring of Kerry. One of those detours led to Bellycarbery Castle. You can’t get too close, but even from a distance, this castle is awesome.

7) Kilkenny

The river in Kilkenny made the perfect mirror for a row of buildings on the banks of the river.

6) Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland

Cassie walked out one outcropping of stones along Giant’s Causeway for this picture while I stood on another. The waves crashing into the stones give you an idea of how violent the weather can be here.

5) Cork

You had to know there’d be a picture of beer in our Top 13 Ireland Pictures. We snapped this picture while drinking a few pints at a local pub in Cork. Having sampled many pints of Ireland’s finest stouts, Murphy’s is officially our favorite!

4) Dunguaire Castle, Kinvara

Dunguaire Castle stands on the edge of the water in Kinvara. Once again, the water provided a near perfect reflection of the castle at dusk.

3) Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland

Giant’s Causeway cracks the Top 13 Ireland Pictures 3 times. This was one of our best views. You could see the water, the cliffs, and the farmland from one spot.

2) Watch Tower, Blarney Castle

While climbing Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney Stone, we got a view of the watch tower from above. The leaves changing color in the background complete this picture.

1) Cliffs of Moher

No list of Ireland pictures is complete without at least one from the Cliffs of Moher. We hiked down to the southern end and looked north for this stunning picture. We knew pretty quickly this would be one of the best pictures in our Top 13 Ireland Pictures. It turned out to be number 1!
