5 Places you NEED to see in Ireland

 #1: Carrick-a-Rede Bridge

If you want to see a breathtaking beach scene from a rope bridge, this is your place! The water is crystal clear and the cliffs are covered in emerald green grass, it's beautiful. Although it's a lovely sight, keep in mind it is regulated, and does cost a few Euros, but it's well worth it.

#2: Cliffs of Moer

 These cliffs are the most famous sight in Ireland, and it's well deserved. Huge drop offs right near the ocean. You can get as close as you dare...For a more thrilling view, lay on your stomach and look down below like I did. Although the cliffs are beautiful, they are a tourist attraction, and you do have to pay a small fee.

#3: Downtown Cohb

Cohb is such a beautiful little town. It was the last stop the Titanic made before it sank. There's a small Titanic museum, a gorgeous harbor, and tons of ice cream shops. If you are there for breakfast, the Yellow Door Cafe has the sweetest workers, with lots of healthy options. 

#4: Rock of Cashel

This was our first stop on our trip, and man was it a good one. The castle is surrounded by rolling green hills, and there's a lot of neat history you can learn too. This place is a must. 

#5: Killarney National Park

Just before you get to the parking lot, you'll see a group of horse buggies and drivers. It costs around 45 Euros for an hour long horse-driven tour. It was for sure worth it! Our driver was so kind, and knew so much history, as he took us to a beautiful waterfall, and a huge mansion. He even sang some Irish songs! He waited by the horse while we got lunch at the mansion (They had amazing food, tons of options!). This was by far one of my favorite parts of the trip.
