Fall in love with 3 Most Beautiful towns in Ireland

December 14, 2018 Destination Europe No Comments Email Email

Sometimes it’s easy to be attracted to the bright city lights when you’re traveling. 

However, in many countries the most scenic sights and memorable people can be found in the towns and Ireland is no different!

Everybody knows someone who’s been to the city of Dublin, but not many people get out and explore the towns within the country too.

Here are three towns in Ireland that you need to visit next time you visit Ireland

Enniskerry, County Wicklow

Enniskerry is found on the bank of the Glencullen river, at the foot of the looming Wicklow Mountains. It’s only a half hour trip from Dublin City so it’s not long to travel if you fancy a change of scenery. Enniskerry is famous for its scenery too, with the highest waterfall in Ireland, Powerscourt Waterfall, attracting visitors all year round.

Powerscourt Estate is a grand building dating back to the 18th century, with 47 beautiful acres of land surrounding it. Unfortunately the garden was severely damaged in early 1970 by a fire, but later restored in 1996 and make for a perfect romantic walk with a loved one!

Remember that when going on your travels, it’s so important to make sure that you’re fully insured to avoid any sticky situations if you get injured or lose any possessions. I always get cheap travel insurance from the AA Ireland as it’s super easy to get a quote online. The annual multi-trip is especially useful if you travel a lot because with one payment you’re covered all year round!

Ardara, Donegal

If you really want to venture off the beaten track, then it’s well worth visiting Ardara. You won’t find warmer, more friendly people anywhere which makes for great atmospheres in the many rural pubs you’ll find around the town.

A short drive away is the Assaranca waterfall that meanders down a very steep rock face to eventually roar into a pool at the bottom. You may have even seen the famous waterfall in pictures before and it’s one you’ll definitely want for your travel scrapbook.

History fans will want to visit the cairn stones at Kilclooney Dolmen that date back to at 3,000 B.C. The tomb is incredibly impressive and begs the question – how did they move and lift such huge stones at that time in history?

Westport, Mayo

You should make a point of visiting Wesport if a walking holiday is your idea of heaven. The picturesque Clew Bay is great to look out on whilst filling your lungs with the crisp North Atlantic air. Before you get to Westport it’s worth reading up online about the different routes and choosing one that suits your style because some a really tough going but great if you like a challenge. Like every Irish town, you’ll find great places to eat and drink in abundance- the hardest part is choosing where to go!

Ireland is often overlooked when considering the most beautiful locations in Europe, but there’s so much to see. For the best sights try looking further than the tourist heavy, Lonely Planet recommended cities and research the local towns to discover the true Ireland.
