Ireland a very safe destination honeymoon site
Victoria and David Beckham celebrated their wedding in Ireland and so did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, so what makes this country such a romantic honeymoon destination?
First, let’s start with the castles – more than 30,000 actually. Weddings are all about happy endings and castles are the epitome of romance so they go hand in hand. Why not spend your honeymoon in, or visiting, a castle in Ireland? There are plenty to choose from, including Dromoland, which sits on 400 acres and has a breathtaking fortress that is built entirely of dark blue limestone. Enjoy a relaxing massage for two or take a romantic boat ride. The Waterford Castle is on a private 310-acre island on the River Suir. The Ashford Castle was the country estate of the Guinness family and has Waterford chandeliers throughout. Beautiful Irish Ballads are performed in castle’s Dungeon Bar. Let’s not even talk about how romantic and beautiful Castle Leslie is, with its 1,000-acre regal sanctuary or the breathtaking Adare Manor, a 19th-century manor house on the banks of the River Maigue.
Lovebirds can also toast their nuptials with a pint of ale at the Guinness Storehouse, one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions or at Metalman Brewing or Blacks of Kinsale. Newlyweds will also love to stand on the 394-foot Cliffs of Moher that overlook the Atlantic Ocean. Ireland is also home to Killarney National Park and the couple can enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride that takes them directly to the 15th-century Ross Castle (another castle!).
Lovebirds will adore the beautiful Saint Patrick’s Cathedral located in Dublin. This holy site is a medieval paradise which was created in 1191. The Mussenden Temple, built in 1785, is also a site to behold as it sits on top of a 120-ft cliff top, high above the Atlantic Ocean. The Temple is the most photographed scene in Ireland, so be sure to snap a photo of the two of you at the Temple. The Botanic Gardens, which was established in 1828 has impressive plants that you can see in the park.
Of course, a honeymoon to Ireland wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the famous Blarney Castle and sharing an upside down kiss on the Blarney Stone.
