Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Ireland is home to some fantastic attractions such as the Giants Causeway, The Wild Atlantic Way, and the Fermanagh Lakelands not to mention the green rural countryside throughout Ireland. In this latest article I thought I would share with you five great views of Ireland that I stumbled upon on Instagram.

Cliffs of Moher

As you can see from the picture the magnificent cliffs of Moher top many lists of places to visit in Ireland in this case we think we have saved what we think is the best to last. The Cliffs are located at the southwestern edge of the Burren region in County Clare. At the southern end of the Cliffs of Moher stands Hags Head a natural rocky promontory that resembles a seated woman when viewed from the north.
