Destination Must-Sees

Ireland ms1

Cliffs of Moher:

Stand in absolute awe of these series of cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. On a clear day you can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay as well as other iconic sites. Go to O’Brien’s Tower which stands near the highest point of the cliffs and has been a favourite viewing spot for hundreds of years.

Giant’s Causeway:

Giant’s Causeway was formed millions of years ago by volcanic activity that produced “stepping stones” that look like an old cobbled road leading mysteriously into the sea. This is a UNESCO site and an absolute must-see.

Dublin, the “Fair City”:

This modern yet traditional capital city of Ireland is filled to the brim with charm! Fall in love while strolling through the city’s rows of magnificent Georgian townhouses. See St. Patrick’s Cathedral which dates back to the 13th century.

The Palace of Holyroodhouse
