Skellig Michael, the Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry, all in one remarkable road trip

Watching the stunning vistas online Ireland’s coastline in this short video you’ll realize why Ireland is called “The Emerald Isle” and wonder why the sea’s deep blue shades haven’t earned it a nickname.

The video uploaded by Jonathan Haring to Vimeo is described as a “video from a family trip to Ireland.” With perfect shots and the perfect choice of music, in the form of “Weightless” by Courtney Jones, this is certainly miles better than any home movie I’ve ever seen.

Of course that is what I thought until I realized Haring is a graphic and media designer at Condé Nast Media Group in New York.

The video takes in the coast and landscape of Cork, Kerry and Galway including shots of Skellig Michael, the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry and more.

It’d truly make you want to pack up your back and have an adventure in Ireland as soon as possible.
