Ireland offers a wealth of history, scenery, and culture to visitors. With so many places to see, however, choosing where to start can be daunting. With that in mind, the following three spots rank high on many lists of recommendations.

Kylemore Abbey. During World War I, refugee nuns from Belgium took up residence at Kylemore Castle, and it was subsequently dubbed Kylemore Abbey. Apart from its storied history, the building itself is a testament to early 20th-century architecture and has been well-preserved.

The Ring of Kerry. Perhaps Ireland’s most picturesque and often-traveled trail, the Ring of Kerry passes through the Beara Peninsula, Killarney National Park, and Kerry Way, which provide some of the country’s most majestic landscapes.

The Cliffs of Moher. These are one of Ireland’s most popular tourist stops. Home to a breathtaking coastal trail formed by river waters some 320 million years ago, the cliffs rise 214 meters above the Atlantic Ocean and stretch from Doolin to Hags Head.
