Ireland also has an assortment of beguiling islands and national parks that will tickle your fancy.

Here are the top 4 things to do when visiting Ireland:

Get a tour of ‘Game of Thrones’ film locations

If you’re the ultimate GoT fan, it’s time you crossed this expedition off your bucket list. Ireland is the proud host of the most scintillating film locations around the world. Spend a full day exploring the breathtaking locations where Game of Thrones is filmed.

Visit the Cliffs of Moher

Seize the opportunity to witness nature’s majestic beauty and grandeur by visiting the exquisite Cliffs of Moher. These cliffs are located in Liscannor, a coastal village that is a few hour’s drive from Dublin. The Cliffs of Moher were formed more than 300 million years ago after seasons of heavy rainfall washed away large quantities of sand and silt, later depositing them at the base of an enormous delta. With time, these sediments created layers of solid rock, forming the Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy spectacular views of the setting sun casting its dying embers upon the oceanic horizon, creating a site to behold.

    Ireland is on my bucket list but I’m not sure when I can cross it out on my list. My husband is a fan of GoT so if ever we have a chance, I’ll include this in our itinerary. I would love to visit different castle too.

    I want to be a Disney princess nung bata pa ako, kaya bucket-list ko talaga makakita ng castle someday. I only had watched season 1 of GoT, for sure gusto pumunta ng mga avid fans ng GoT. The Kelkinny Castle is so dreamyyyy.

      It is, indeed, dreamy. I am sure lots of GoT fans have already flocked to this castle. Crossing my fingers to see it up close one day soon.

    Like most, the GOT tour is most appealing haha! Those places you mentioned are amazing in the photos. The tour of Dublin sounds like something we would do with the kids since there’s history there. I like being educated about a place.
