Visit the Giant’s Causeway (The Antrim Coast)
Up in the very north of the island you’ll find the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must-see. To get there you can drive up the stunning Antrim Coast which winds itself all the way to your destination and ensures you’ll have great scenes of cliffs and the sea as you make your way there and will show why this was the area where HBO decided to film its famous TV series Game of Thrones. Once you reach the Giant’s Causeway you’ll find a strange and unique landscape of large, rock columns stretching across the coast, which Irish legend tells is the remains of a road across the sea built by a giant going to fight his foe in Scotland.
Visit the Cliffs of Moher
Out in the west of Ireland in County Clare are the Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland’s most popular locations Famous for the views it gives you across the ocean as well as sweeping cliffs as far as the eye can see, this part of the island is home to some of the last remaining areas of untamed and rugged countryside. Feel dizzy walking along the tops of the cliffs or feel awed walking along the beach looking up. Either way, just look out for that wind coming across the Atlantic, it’s fierce!
Visit the Ring of Kerry
You run out of adjectives to describe the Ring of Kerry. This phenomenal place isn’t so much a fixed point as a whole area of County Kerry right down in the south of Ireland. It’s perfect for roadtrippers as you can drive all around it, taking the whole thing in behind the wheel, before stepping out and experiencing a wide range of activities like golf, cycling, water-sports, horse-riding and the very best fishing in freshwater rivers for salmon, trout, tuna and more! There’s a whole load of Irish B&Bs to let you experience Irish hospitality for yourself, although that depends on if you can understand the accent!
Visit Gweedore (County Donegal)
Named ‘coolest place on the planet’ by National Geographic, you don’t want to miss out on Donegal on your road trip through Ireland. Its coastline is gorgeous even on the greyest of days and the rolling brown peat bogs of Donegal, overlooked by stony Mt.Errigal, give the land an ancient feeling just waiting to be explored in your motorhome. Head up to the town of Gweedore, it’s the largest area of Irish-speakers in the whole of Ireland. Enjoy a pint (or two!) of Guinness in a cozy, wooden pub by the sea and soak in the sounds of the Gaelic language and experience this wee pocket of pure Irish culture tucked away in the north and feel a world away from home!
