Deeming itself as Ireland’s prettiest village, Adare is a must if your Instagram feed is full of thatched cottages and floral filled fountains. This beautiful heritage village is calling to be photographed.
8. Piercing Pontoon Pictures
While thousands trek to this University each year for its academic courses, it’s often not credited for its physical beauty. U.L. is surrounded by towering trees and a water filled backdrop of the pontoon. If you’re looking for the loveliest sunset, U.L. is the place for you.
