Thanks for checking the Curious lreland website.

The best way to travel is have a good excuse to visit somewhere. Most of the locations on this website (but not all) are classified as national monuments and each one has been carefully selected for specific reasons (it might be the biggest castle, the earliest ring fort, the most ornate High Cross, the scene of a famous battle, the finest Gothic arch etc etc. If you’re not into history or architecture you’ll find most of these places are incredibly atmospheric or have beautiful locations and vistas. It’s crazy to think any of these buildings, some of which are over 6000 years old are still standing after all theses years having to deal with fires, floods, blizzards and battles.

So go experience, take a few snaps and enjoy the great outdoors.
