Things to See on an Ireland Road Trip

There are so many great things to see on an Ireland road trip, as well as different attractions and activities to explore and experience.

Our trip through our interpretation of southern Ireland was stunningly beautiful, not only in landscapes but also in its culture, people, wildlife and of course the delicious food.

Skellig Michael

Skellig Michael is the sanctuary ecosystem for so many unique species of birds, including the cute puffin. June is the perfect time to see tens of thousands of puffins and their babies.

Rock of Cashel

The Rock of Cashel is one of Ireland’s most unique and spectacular archaeological sites.  It is legitimately a Castle On A Hill. Found on a prominent green hill, banded with limestone outcrops.

Ring of Kerry + Skellig Ring

This 179 kilometer circuit of this peninsula is perfect for driving with the road that winds past pristine beaches, medieval ruins, mountains, lakes, and views of the island-dotted Atlantic.


It’s a place where land meets ocean, the sharp rocks jut out of the water, tiny settlements are spread all over, and sandy coves appear once in a while.

Within the park you can view Ireland’s largest mountain range, as well as the famously beautiful lakes. The natural beauty of Killarney is undeniable and spans a large area. 


Cliffs of Moher

It is hard to describe the staggering beauty of these vertical cliffs that fall into the ocean and the colors that shine through depending on the lighting conditions.
