Happy Friday from St Finbarr's Oratory, Gougane Barra, County Cork! This site is home to a wealth of Ireland's history: said to have been settled by St Finbarr himself in the 6th century, Gougane Barra was a welcome religious retreat for those suffering religious persecution in the times of the Penal Laws in Ireland. Today, many a happy couple makes their way here to get married in the still and silent beauty of the old chapel, their picture-perfect day mirrored in the glassy waters of the lake.

Cheers to @riehll_ns for capturing this image – we're in love!

There's something of the otherworldly about the Sperrins mountain range in Northern Ireland πŸ” Looking out at such a landscape, it's easy to imagine this island's famous myths and legends playing out across the vales: fairy folk and godly peoples holding court atop the peaks, giants grappling along the troughs... Though such magic and folklore may be far from today's reality, a hike along the mountain range's 64km of rugged beauty is just enough to give you a glimpse of what could have been...what might have been...all those millennia ago ☘️ #loveireland #northernireland #loveni #ireland #irlanda #irlande #irland #mountainview #mountaintop #greenbeauty #myth #landscapelover

@ksimpsonphoto One section of the more than 600 stones steps that were hand-forged by monks centuries ago on #SkelligMichael. It's unbelievable to imagine how this haven was created with no modern tools or ships.

The coast of County Donegal is a jigsaw of jagged edges, each turn crenellated with hulking stone columns and steep, grassy cliffs, black rock and bulging boulders. But within these nooks and crannies lie many a secret spot – like Murder Hole Beach, just beyond the quiet townland of Melmore. The road signs won't lead you here, there's no path from civilisation to the golden sands beyond, and it's a lucky few who'll manage to wheedle the location out of a chatty local πŸ˜‰ But once you find the way – well...you'll want to keep this place to yourself too!

Framed by a fiery sunset, Mussenden Temple overlooks the lapping waves of the surrounding ocean from its perch 120 feet above the surf. This temple was built as a summer library by Frederick Augustus Hervey in the 18th century, and its design was inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli, Italy. On either side, pristine golden beaches stretch in both directions, and dramatic cliffs reach towards the horizon.

Clamber upwards through the clouds and arrive at the peak of Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s tallest mountain. At a lofty 1038 metres, this peak is small by global standards, but still commands the respect of experienced climbers. Dip your toes into Cummeenoughter Lake, the highest lake in Ireland, on your way to the summit, and then watch as miles of deep green countryside unfold around you once you reach the top β›° Thank you to @ihaveadarksoul for capturing this shot.

Dunmore East, County Waterford: If the village looks this beatifically beautiful, can you imagine the view from the spire of St Andrew's Church out over the water? 😍
