2. Trinity Library

This dark-wooden library in Dublin’s famous Trinity College looks like it belongs in Harry Potter.

4. The Aran Islands

Remote and incredibly beautiful, these scenic islands off the coast of Galway are home to locals who still speak Gaeilge as their first language.

The island of Inishman is reached with a picturesque seaplane that will be one of the cutest – and shortest! – flights you’ll ever do.

It has charming pubs, delicious Murphy’s Icecream and is home to a great independent music festival every winter, Other Voices. A must-see.

7. Giant’s Causeway

Flanked by the wild North Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it.

Legend has it that the giant basalt rocks got where they are now by a giant.
