10 most romantic place in Ireland

10 most romantic place in Ireland

If you’re looking for a local romantic getaway and live in Ireland then you’re already doing well. The Emerald Isle just happens to be one of the most understatedly romantic places on earth. It offers plenty of opportunities for secluded romance and magical, mystical scenery, so there’s no need to go any further for a special weekend away. It was actually pretty tough to choose only 10 places for this list!

1.Whitefriar Church, Dublin

Dublin prides itself on being the final resting place of St. Valentine, he of Valentine’s Day fame. I’m sure you’ll agree that it can’t get much more romantic than visiting the patron saint of love himself. People visit the church regularly to pray for love, propose, cruise and just feel the unearthly presence of Mr. Love. While here, you can explore Dublin, which is pretty romantic itself, even without the added saintly benefit.

2.County Sligo

If it was good enough to inspire the works of W. B. Yeats, then it’s good enough for us! This beautiful and unspoilt county has everything you want for a nature lover’s dream romantic holiday – mountains, lakes, forests and rivers so beautiful they’ll bring tears to your eyes. If you’re into history as well, then you’ll enjoy the many ruins scattered throughout.

3.Bunratty Castle

If you’re looking for less tranquillity and more period drama, then this is the romantic getaway for you — not exactly secluded, but certainly different. This is the best preserved medieval fortress in Ireland and there are medieval banquets put on every night where you can enjoy a mead reception and a full meal accompanied by actual minstrels. The castle grounds offer opportunity for exploring other periods in Irish history, as well as a pretty walled garden.

4.Ross castle

What could be more romantic than spending a night in a strikingly beautiful haunted castle? Spending a night in a haunted castle where the resident ghost is said to have died of a broken heart, of course! Don’t worry, though, we’re told this ghost is harmless.

5.Castle Leslie, Co. Monaghan

If you’re feeling flush on your romantic getaway, head over to the luxurious Castle Leslie for a weekend to remember. One of the last estates in Ireland to still be owned by the original founding family, the castle is surrounded by 1000 acres of natural beauty. No expense is spared when you stay here.

6.Lakes of Killarney

Killarney National Park offers a good opportunity to witness some of that mystical beauty we were talking about before. Magical, tranquil scenery and some very romantic country walks will naturally ensue.

7.Cliff of Moher

Affording some of the best views Ireland has to offer, this natural beauty spot is guaranteed to get a reaction out of anyone with a soul.

8.Waterford Castle

This 4 star castle hotel has a golf course, which is not that romantic, but it’s historic and pretty and is situated on its own private island that you can only reach via a private ferry. We think that’s enough seclusion to warrant a place on our list.

9.Inistioge, County Kilkenny

A scenic little village, surrounded by rolling countryside. Being so picturesque means it’s quite heavily visited, but it still retains a fairly tranquil charm with plenty of opportunities for woodland and river walks plus the beautiful nearby Woodstock Estate gardens.

10.County Mayo

County Mayo has some of Ireland’s wildest scenery with heaps of history and wildlife to observe. There’s a lot of it to explore from unspoilt stretches of the Atlantic coast to buzzy towns and historical monuments and museums. Visit Croagh Patrick, Ireland’s holy mountain, for a unique spiritual experience.
