Between the breathtaking aerial footage flying high over staggering cliffs and the panning shots showing the magnificence of Ireland’s great house and castles, Brazilian filmmaker Junior Braun managed to make Ireland look incredible even on a dull and rainy day.

In his latest video of the counties in the south west, Braun treks through Kilkenny, Tipperary, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, and Clare, capturing something magical at every turn. Moving to Ireland to learn English and to be in close proximity to the rest of Europe, Braun was instantly enamored with the country’s landscape.

“When I came to Ireland, my first thought was that I needed to make a video about this amazing country,” he told IrishCentral.

“I went on this trip with my wife and another couple. We had just 4 days and we wanted to find the most beautiful places in Ireland.

“We started to do research to find the best places to go and found a route starting in Dublin that went through Kilkenny, Tipperary, Cork, Kerry, Clare, Limerick and finished in Dublin again.”

Ireland almost feels abandoned as Braun puts together the beauty of all the south west’s most remote and isolated havens, even happening across deer through the branches of a wood. Next on his list is Dublin!

“I think that we are living in a good film moment around the world,” Braun says.

“Thus, Ireland is growing really fast and today, we have more opportunity than yesterday, and we will have more tomorrow than today.”
