Most beautiful road trips through Ireland
The color green, a four leaf clover, St. Patrick's Day, old castles, and rugged nature. What do you think of when you think about Ireland? Discover the best road trip routes this country has to offer. Start in Dublin, Belfast or Cork, and enjoy all the wonderful things you can see in this beautiful country. What are you waiting for? Hit the road!
Visiting the capital Dublin should definitely be on your list, but did you know that there is plenty to do around the city? Grab your car and go! Head south and you will encounter beautiful nature in the Wicklow Mountains National Park, including impressive waterfalls, large lakes, and dense forests. Perfect for an adventurous day: go hiking or mountain biking!
There is also a good dose of culture in Ireland. Further south is the town of Kilkenny, with a beautiful medieval castle. And Dublin is also a great destination for a more cultural adventure with the old prison, Kilmainham Gaol.
The biggest city in Northern Ireland, Belfast is full of history. The Troubles took place only 20 years ago and you can still see a lot of that, but don't stay in the city for too long because the Causeway Coastal Route is waiting for you!
Follow the coast to beautiful places where you can hike as well. For fantastic Northern Irish views, head to Torr Head or Giant's Causeway. Do not miss the Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, especially if you don't have a fear of heights. Or visit the Dark Hedges (see photo) which you might recognize from the hit series Game of Thrones as King's Road. End up in Derry ~ Londonderry, a great historic city.
Cozy Cork is a good starting point for a road trip through the rugged south of Ireland. The peninsulas consist of fantastic nature: cliffs, rocks and a wild sea you see everywhere!
There are also beautiful islands off the coast, such as Skellig Michael, which you may have seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Or the Blasket Islands, off the coast of the peninsula Dingle, full of large rocks and a special history.
