Why Visit Ireland?
Ireland is full of charm and some of its offerings are so beautiful that they verge on surreal; no wonder it has been haunting a big chunk of vacationers from the early ages. Whether it is the cliffs of Moher or the rain-kissed Aran Islands, or it is the satchel of its historical gems, Ireland presents the unexpected with sites like Newgrange and Hill of Tara in County Meath. Extraordinary countryside and unadulterated natural beauty make Ireland a must for nature-lovers, and though there is more to Ireland than nature and history, we are just going to name a few of its hidden gems.
Top Hidden Gems of Ireland
Caves of Kesh, County Sligo
County Sligo is deemed the place in Ireland where the first humans are believed to have settled, North West coast is believed to be the place where they took shelter. The county is sprawled with sites like Queen Maeve’s cairn and Neolithic necropolis of Carrowkeel; however, Caves of Kesh are just hypnotic. They are sixteen in number and are located along the white ridge which sits at the side of the mountain, and is crowned by the passage tomb of Keshcorran.
The Jealous Wall
It has an interesting back story; when Earl of Belvedere’s brother built a house opposite his own mansion, earl did the best he could do, he built a wall to block the house from view. It is one of the largest follies in Ireland; today, totally restored, it stands in the grounds of Belvedere House accompanied by a café, picnic areas, and a shop et al.
Leenane-Delphi-Louisburgh Drive, County Mayo
If one is just crazy about cycling, the road from Leenane through Delphi to Louisburgh is the finest way to experience Ireland’s pristine beauty at close quarters. The road crawls through meadows that finally give way to picture-perfect Sheeffry hills and the Connemara Mountains. However, there is a fact that one should note; the name Delphi, known as the white lake in English and Fionnloch in Irish, was coined by Marquess of Sligo to whom the land belonged. He named it so as it reminded him of the visits that he had paid to the Oracle of Delphi in Greece.
