It is said that the beautiful Clew Bay in County Mayo is home to 365 islands of all shapes and sizes, one for every day of the year. On a clear day, standing on the summit of Croagh Patrick almost 2,500 feet above sea level, a view like this has a time-stopping effect on you. With the sun making a welcome return to Ireland this week, why not take a trip to this naturally stunning part of the Wild Atlantic Way and see how many you can count! 📸(@dbuckleyproductions) #loveireland #ireland #irland #irlande #irlanda #discoverireland #instaireland #visitireland #wildatlanticway #croaghpatrick #clewbay #islands #mayo #countymayo #hikingireland #westport

Off the rugged coast of Kerry along the Wild Atlantic Way lies the Skellig Islands. Jutting out from the Atlantic Ocean, the larger of the two, Skellig Michael, was originally home to monks way back in the 6th century. During their time of solitude on the islands, with great determination and strength, the monks built stone stairways and huts that remain to this day. While Little Skellig is home to one of the largest colonies of northern gannets in the world. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Skellig Michael has become a popular place to visit and has even made an impression in Hollywood. The instantly recognisable monastic isle features in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as Luke Skywalker's stunning Jedi retreat. 📸(@robert_ziegenfuss) #loveireland #ireland #irland #irlande #irlanda #discoverireland #instaireland #visitireland #wildatlanticway #skelligs #starwars #kerry #skelligmichael #skelligislands #islands

Situated approximately 230m above sea level – standing beside the Cloughmore Stone is sure to make you feel on top of the world! From here, you can take in the patchwork design of the County Down countryside below as well as the glistening waters of Carlingford Lough. The trail to the giant crater is not too challenging, so it is a great excuse to bring the entire family along for a day out in the fresh air! After all, there really is nothing better than the smell of the outdoors lingering on your clothes long after the sun has set. 📸(@niexplorer) #loveireland #ireland #northernireland #irland #irlande #irlanda #discovernorthernireland #visitnorthernireland #instaireland #views #down #cloughmorestone #carlingfordlake

As the Irish poet Seamus Heaney once wrote, ‘I had come to the edge of the water, soothed by just looking, idling over it’. In honour of what would have been his 79th birthday today, we thought we would dedicate this post to one of our literary heroes. 📸(@carashanley) #loveireland #ireland #irland #irlande #irlanda #discoverireland #instaireland #visitireland #seamusheaney #poetry #fridayfeeling

Step back in time at the medieval Dunluce Castle, County Antrim. If these walls could talk we’re sure they’d tell us a tale or two! One particular legend that resonates with us is the story of the castle’s kitchen crumbling from the grasp of the cliff edge to the sea below, taking seven of the castle’s staff members to a watery grave!
