1. The Cliffs of Moher, Clare
The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s top tourist destinations and are most definitely one of the most Instagrammable places in Ireland.

On a clear day, visitors can expect incredible views of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. For the perfect Instagram shot, head towards O’Brien’s Tower, a 19th century viewing tower, to capture the iconic photo of the wild Atlantic Ocean against the row of mighty cliffs.
2. Galway City, Galway
Galway City, often referred to as Dublin’s cooler, younger sister, is the cultural hub of Ireland, and for good reason. Home of the arts, Galway City is full of picturesque scenes that are sure to delight your followers. Take a video of the talented musicians and street performers that line the city’s main thoroughfare, Shop Street, capture an Irish trad session in one of Galway’s many pubs, or take a stroll to the Spanish Arch, and photograph the rippling River Corrib.
3. Glendalough, Wicklow
As one of Ireland’s UNESCO World Heritage Site’s it’s no wonder Glendalough is considered one of the top Instagrammable places in Ireland.
