Instagramming Ireland – Green Hills, Giant Footsteps, and oh so Much Guinness


Each month on this website I feature a favourite country, city, or region of mine. Alongside this destination of the month comes posts, highlights, and now a quick collection of my Instagram photos from the area. Next up in this social photo sharing series is Instagramming Ireland, a country that I was lucky enough to road trip around not once but twice, leaving me with plenty of amazing photos to share.

My first tour through Ireland took me from Dublin to Derry and Cork to Kerry. On my 8-day road trip around Ireland, I covered a lot. I stopped at a tomb older than the pyramids of Giza in Newgrange, checked out where the Titanic left on its doomed voyage, walked in the footsteps of giants, strolled along the Cliffs of Moher, and made my way around the Ring of Kerry…sort of. All the while sampling Guinness at every stop along the way, including straight from the source.

Yes, it was a busy trip around Ireland where I crammed a lot in…yet it left me wanting more. As noted in previous posts, I hate to backtrack. I would much rather visit somewhere new than exploring a country I have visited further. Ireland, however, I would make an exception. With the help of a ridiculously low airfare ($330 return YVR-DUB…although I missed the flight! More on that later), I did just that. Thanks to a heads-up error fare from YVRDeals, I pounced. I made my return this past month and only added to my love of this great country. Along with that second visit came plenty more Instagramming Ireland shots.

With that in mind here is a recap of my favourite Instagramming Ireland photos. Scroll on. It’s good craic!

My time Instagramming Ireland was made possible thanks to a partnership with Auto Europe Car Rentals and Tourism Ireland. As always, the experience, opinions, and Irish adventures were my own.
