#1 of 8 Sights & Landmarks in Inishmore
It was absolutely breath-taking, the crashing waves, the birds, the flowers, the rocks, but the vastness of the ocean is a sight worth the climb.
You must be able to walk over stones, trails, and stone walls to get there, but if you like views of cliffs and ocean along with solitude this is the place.

The church has little details in the well preserved architecture of the windows, the head of a bishop or even King over the door, the stonework on the old Celtic crosses that grace the graveyard and I’m always fas...

Amazing to learn about and visit a site older than the pyramids ... and enjoy the enthusiasm and hospitality of staff who bring the history and archaeology to life - as if for the first time.
They bus you to the two main sites (Knowth and Newgrange), everything is organised like clockwork yet you still get time to yourselves to look at the amazing burial grounds, take photos, go inside etc.

Deserted Village

Achill Island
#1 of 6 Sights & Landmarks in Achill Island
The deserted villages and famine cemeteries are peaceful places where it is good to sit, enjoy the beauty around you and contemplate the history.
The attraction aside it is worth visiting just for the views, the deserted village itself gives an insight into the past and I found walking amongst the ruins quite humbling.
