A Vikings's guide to Ireland
Jordan Patrick Smith from Vikings dishes on his favorite places in Ireland with Tourism Ireland ☘Publiée par IrishCentral.com sur Jeudi 26 septembre 2019
Powerscourt Estate and Waterfall is, of course, a special place for him - it's one of the locations where Vikings films. Home to Ireland's tallest waterfall, it really is a sight out of myth and legend.
An avid surfer, Smith knows one of Ireland's best-kept secrets - that it has some of the best surfing spots in the whole world. Brittas Bay, on Ireland's east coast, is one of the most spectacular.
As a Viking, he also loves Dublin, which the Vikings ruled for nearly three centuries. In 1030, they built a cathedral where Christ Church Cathedral stands today.
And of course, no trip to Dublin is complete without a pint.
