CIE Tours International ensures its guests a steady stream of Insta-worthy moments, with a wide array of tours that highlight Ireland’s most historic and picturesque sites.
There’s no shortage of stunning scenery in Ireland. In fact, it seems around every turn lies another opportunity to capture that epic Instagram-worthy shot, from ancient castles and Stone Age ruins to rugged sea cliffs and wildflower-dotted meadows.
The island’s wild beauty has served as the setting for countless films and television series, and a post of the Dark Hedges or Skellig Michael by even the most novice photographers is sure to draw envy from the "Game of Thrones" and "Star Wars" fans among their Instagram followers.
But how to find the best Insta shots? CIE Tours International are on hand, providing their guests with a steady stream of picture-perfect moments, with a wide array of tours that highlight Ireland’s most historic and picturesque sites.
Here are just two of the many options:
The aptly named Jewels of Ireland takes guests on a 14-day adventure that spans the country.
Starting in the capital city of Dublin, it continues to Blarney Castle and the charming sailing village of Kinsale. Following Cork’s rugged western coastline, guests continue to Killarney, with its picturesque lakes set against a backdrop of Ireland’s highest mountains.
More photogenic destinations follow, including The Dingle Peninsula’s Slea Head Drive; the Cliffs of Moher, rising 700 feet from the Atlantic; a catamaran cruise of Ireland’s only fjord; Slieve League—Europe’s highest sea cliffs; the natural wonder of the Giant’s Causeway; Antrim—site of the Dark Hedges made famous in Game of Thrones; Belfast, with its Victorian architecture and Titanic Belfast; and the 5,000-year-old burial tombs of Newgrange and Knowth.
The five-day Taste of Ireland makes the most of its shorter itinerary, focusing on Ireland’s pastoral midlands and sunny southern coast.
It begins in Dublin, with a driving tour that includes Trinity College with its world-renowned library, the River Liffey, and Dublin Castle, before continuing on to the majestic Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle and picturesque Killarney.
Then it’s on to the spectacular Ring of Kerry and the Skellig Experience, where guests will learn about the ancient monastic outpost on Skellig Michael, one of the locations for Star Wars VII.
