Mountain and valley, lake and streams, all combine to make Connemara one of the loveliest regions in Ireland. See: Kylemore Abbey, in the heart of the Connemara mountains. This impressive structure was built in 1868 as one of the great neo-Gothic castles of the period. It is now a Benedictine abbey run by the nuns, and the church and gardens have been completely restored.

Kilkenny began with an early sixth-century ecclesiastical foundation and was granted city status in 1609. It remains the smallest city in Ireland—and one of the prettiest, with its medieval buildings and narrow lanes lined with colorful shops, Black Abbey and Kilkenny Castle are particular stand-outs.

Three windswept isles—Inishmore, Inishmaan, and Inisheer—off the west coast of Ireland all have a rugged, bleak beauty to match the sinister 2,000-year-old ruins of Dún Aenghus, a Celtic fortress clinging to a cliff top as if declaring this to be the actual edge of the world. —David Jefferys

Dublin's Trinity College—the oldest university in Ireland—has no shortage of beautiful buildings and green lawns, but the main attraction is the Old Library's Long Room. The vast hall holds 200,000 books and 14 marble busts under its barrel-vaulted ceiling—with the intricately illustrated Book of Kells the centerpiece of a bibliophilic dream.

Giant's Causeway is a natural wonder worthy of its whimsical moniker. The UNESCO World Heritage site is made up of 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns, which were formed by volcanic activity 40–50 million years ago (though as legend has it, a giant named Finn McCool tossed parts of the Antrim coast into the sea to beat a hasty path to fight a giant Scottish interloper). The rocks fit together as perfectly as puzzle pieces.

Glendalough is a seventh-century monastery that’s a popular Catholic pilgrimage destination. Ireland has a complicated, fascinating religious history, and the era during which Glendalough flourished is an important one: Saint Patrick had begun converting the Irish to Catholicism from paganism in the fifth century, and 200 years later, Ireland had become known as a place of spiritual enlightenment. —Eimear Lynch
