The most Instagrammable spots in Ireland have been revealed, with stops along the Wild Atlantic Way coming out on top.
Research by InstaTours, an Instagram tour company in Ireland, has uncovered the most beautiful locations across the country for taking photos.
To uncover the Emerald Isle's most Instagrammable places, researchers reviewed the volume of hashtags on Instagram for each location, checking the photo quality of each spot by professional photographers and measuring the number of travel blogs featuring each setting.
InstaTours found that the most popular locations all had one thing in common – nature.
According to the researchers, the secret to a great Instagram photo is beautiful backgrounds, a sunrise/sunset and lack of other people around.
