Cliffs of Moher
The Cliffs of Moher tower above the wild Atlantic ocean and offers spectacular and breath-taking views.
They rise for 214m and, on a clear day, you can see the Aran Islands, the Twelve Bens mountain range in Galway, the Blasket Islands in Kerry as well as Mount Brandon in Dingle.
The cliffs can get quite busy, playing host to over one million visitors each year. However, they do stretch for about 8km, meaning that you’ll surely get a romantic quiet spot away from the throngs of other visitors.
The Giant’s Causeway
The Giant’s Causeway is a rocky spectacle, with over 40,000 basalt rocks sticking up out of the sea. It was caused by an ancient volcanic eruption, which we luckily get to enjoy today!
At sunset, the Giant’s Causeway is an incredibly romantic hike as the redness of the sun adds a warming tinge to the rocks.
As romantic hike’s go, the Giant’s Causeway is certainly one that you don’t want to miss out on!
