  • 📍Old Head of Kinsale, County Cork A truly spectacular piece of the Irish coastline . The Old Head of Kinsale is a prominent headland in County Cork, not far from the ever popular town of Kinsale. Geologically, the Old Head is composed of hard sandstone that has survived the natural action of the ocean while the shale rock that once surrounded it has been slowly eroded over time. The Old Head Lighthouse that can be seen at the end of the headland has been there since the 17th century but it's the more recent history that has brought the Old Head into the spotlight .  In 1997, one of Ireland's most spectacular golf courses was opened on the Old Head after the land was developed by private owners. A protracted legal battled ultimately resulted in a decision that gave the golf course owners the right to prevent the general public from accessing the lighthouse and the southern tip of the Old Head where the golf course is located. Walkers and visitors continue to have access to a beautiful looped walk on the upper part of the peninsula but, to access the lighthouse, visitors must wait for specially designated open days or opt for a boat tour or sea kayaking trip which will take you around the Old Head for some fantastic views form the water . . #ireland #wildatlanticway #cork #kinsale #coast #travelbug #golfcourse #ireland_gram #travel #visitireland #instaireland #discoverireland  #tourireland #igtravel #cliffs #tourismireland #bucketlist #yourwayireland #wanderlust #loveireland #golf #instatravel #vacation #travelgram #irelandtravel #irishcentral #roadtrip #wanderireland

  • 🇮🇹 Il domen del Burren in Irlanda. Una regione che ho conosciuto per caso, di passaggio dopo le più famose Cliffs of Mother. Dopo l'emozione di affacciarmi verso l'oceano dalle mitiche scogliere, ho ripreso la strada per cercare questo dolmen in mezzo ad una distesa infinita di calcare. Mi sono perso due volte, ho visto castelli, montagne di calcare, finché una signora del posto mi ha raccontato la sua storia e indicato la strada. Alla fine lo trovo, in mezzo ad una distesa di pietra che sembra lunare. - - Una regione, quella del Burren, che ho conosciuto grazie al ragazzo che mi ha ospitato in couch surfing la sera prima. Un'altra esperienza che non avrei mai fatto se non con i consigli di un locale!! - E tu? Qual è l'esperienza più bella che ti è successa in viaggio? - - 🇬🇧 The Burren domen in Ireland. A region that I met by chance, passing after the most famous Cliffs of Mother. After the excitement of facing the ocean from the mythical cliffs, I resumed the road to look for this dolmen in the middle of an infinite expanse of limestone. I got lost twice, I saw castles, limestone mountains, until a local lady told me her story and pointed the way. In the end I find it, in the middle of an expanse of stone that seems like a moon. A region, that of the Burren, that I met thanks to the guy who hosted me in couch surfing the night before. Another experience that I would never have done except with the advice of a local !! - And you? What is the best experience that has happened to you on the road? ______________________________ #ig_ireland_ #irelandtravel #irelanddaily #ireland_insta #irish🍀 #imtb #travelpost #traveladdicted #borntotravel #travellerslife #travelcaptures #wandertheworld #travelisfun #viaggiatore #siviaggiare #viaggiando #blogtravel #cliffsofmoher #discovernorthernireland #ilovetravel #sustainabletravel #traveldeeper #travelingram #travelplaces #travelcaptures #discoverireland #yourwayireland #loveireland #bestirelandpics #the_bravers
