Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland 2016.

The Giant's Causeway, renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt, is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland and
in 2015 was awarded the UKs Best Heritage Attraction at the British Travel Awards.

Resulting from a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago, this is the focal point of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has attracted
visitors for centuries. It harbours a wealth of local and natural history.

The Giant’s Causeway is also steeped in myth and legend. Some say it was carved from the coast by the mighty giant, Finn McCool who left behind an
ancient home full of folklore. Look out for clues of his existence – including The Giant’s Boot and Wishing Chair.

Rising and blending into the landscape, with walls of glass, basalt columns and a state of the art interior designed by award winning architects Heneghan-Peng,
The Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre is truly innovative. The grass roof offers 360 degree views of the Causeway coastline. Explore the interactive spaces, watch
Finn McCool on the big screen and unlock the secrets of this inspirational landscape.

Very long walk or taking bus which costs $2.00 Pounds.

the Protestant Waterside and the Nationalist Bogside, these two opposed and independent arms are now united in a structural handshake across the river.
Opened in 2011 this 235 metre long, 4 metre wide curved footpath, track and cycleway stretches from the Guild Hall in the city centre of Derry City to Ebrington

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland 2016.

The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of up to one million visitors every year.

Standing 214m (702 feet) at their highest point they stretch for 8 kilometres (5 miles) along the Atlantic coast of County Clare in the west of Ireland.
From the Cliffs of Moher on a clear day one can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, as well as the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk mountains in
Connemara, Loop Head to the south and the Dingle Peninsula and Blasket Islands in Kerry. O’Brien’s Tower stands near the highest point and has
served as a viewing point for visitors for hundreds of years.
In the ancient Gaelic language, the word Mothar means “ruined fort” and a 1st century BC fort stood where Moher tower now stands. Therefore the Cliffs
of Moher means the cliffs of the ruined fort and although there is no trace remaining of this two thousand year old fort it has given name to the cliffs.

Blarney, Ireland 2016.

Blarney Castle is a medieval stronghold in Blarney, near Cork, Ireland, and the River Martin. Though earlier fortifications were built on the same spot, the current keep
was built by the MacCarthy of Muskerry dynasty, a cadet branch of the Kings of Desmond, and dates from 1446.[4] The Blarney Stone is among the machicolations of the castle.
The castle originally dates from before 1200, when a timber house was believed to have been built on the site, although no evidence remains of this. Around 1210 this was
replaced by a stone fortification. It was destroyed in 1446, but subsequently rebuilt by Cormac Laidir MacCarthy.

Blarney House is a Scottish baronial-style mansion that was built on the grounds in 1874.

The Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, found at the top of tower. Kiss it and you'll never again be lost for words. It costs $1E for a kiss with awkward pose.

Surrounding the castle are extensive gardens. There are paths touring the grounds with signs pointing out the various attractions such as several natural rock formations with fanciful names such as
Druid's Circle, Witch's Cave and the Wishing Steps. The grounds include a poison garden with a number of poisonous plants, including wolfsbane, mandrake, ricin and opium, as well as cannabis.

Kilkenny, Ireland 2016.

Kilkenny Castle is a castle in Kilkenny, Ireland built in 1195 by William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke to control a fording-point of the River Nore and the junction
of several routeways. It was a symbol of Norman occupation and in its original thirteenth-century condition it would have formed an important element of the defences
of the town with four large circular corner towers and a massive ditch, part of which can still be seen today on the Parade.


Kilkenny is a popular tourist destination, and it's still cold here in May with cherry blossom.
