Ireland was one of the first countries I ever placed on my travel bucket list.

Perhaps it was the hopeless romantic in me thinking I would meet a handsome man, like in P.S. I Love You, or maybe it was the sheer amount of beautiful photos that left me captivated.

The Republic Of Ireland has captured the awe and attention of travellers for generations. Despite its size, The Emerald Isle boasts no shortage of natural attractions, its rugged coastlines and cliffs offering respite from the bustle of urban life. Ancient landmarks offer a glimpse of the country’s rich history, while the energetic city festivities provide immersive experiences with its progressive, youthful, culture.

Those that want to witness Ireland’s beauty for themselves have many options. The country’s public transportation offers an easy and affordable way to get around, while organised bus and cruise tours take travellers around the country’s most famous beauty spots while removing the headache of travel planning. Car rentals, on the other hand, give drivers the freedom to traverse Ireland’s winding roads on their own terms. To help you determine the best way to see the Emerald Isle, we’ve outlined the strengths and weaknesses of each method of transport.

Dublin | Cork | Galway | Aran Islands | Belfast | The Dark Hedges | Giant’s Causeway | Portrush | Whiterocks Beach | Howth | Ring of Kerry | County Donegal | Cliffs of Moher
Of the 100+ countries I’ve travelled and photographed, Ireland is the one place that I really haven’t photographed nearly enough. Still, I have spent a small amount of time in the Republic and also covered some distance in the north as well. I feel like though I do need to go back and scout more of the photography locations – especially those in the Republic – I can put together a solid week’s worth of photo spots in this guide.

So, here we go. The best photography locations in Ireland. And, obviously this will be updated as I travel the island – and islands – more in the future.

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
