30 Free Dating Ideas For Landscape-Lovers In Ireland

Ireland is one of the world’s most scenic and beautiful countries. There are plenty of free destinations for you to enjoy breathtaking views with your date. Here are 30 ideas for you to experience some of the natural beauty Ireland has to offer.

1. Drive along the Slea Head Drive in the Dingle Peninsula

    From Dingle, the circular Slea Head Drive forms part of the scenic Wild Atlantic Way and offers stunning views of the Dingle Peninsula. At Slea Head, you and your date will be treated to dramatic vistas of the coast and the Blasket Islands. There are also fishing villages, picturesque countryside, and spectacular mountain views along the way.

    2. Walk in the footsteps of pagans and pilgrims at Mount Brandon

      If your other half enjoys hiking, travel to the Dingle Peninsula and hike to the summit of Mount Brandon. The mountain once formed part of an ancient Pagan trail for the Celtic harvest festival of Lughnasadh, although now it is a Christian pilgrimage route. The four-hour hike starts just west of Dingle and is signposted to the summit.

      3. Visit Ireland’s only fjord at Killary Harbour

        Killary Harbour stretches 16 kilometres from the Atlantic. With mountains to the north and south, the sheltered fjord has strings of ropes used for growing mussels. Boats also catch shellfish in its waters for restaurants near and far. With walking and diving opportunities, Killary Harbour is a great option if your date loves being active.

        4. Drive to Bunglass for a view of Slieve League

          Slieve League is a striking mountain overlooking the Atlantic coast in County Donegal. It is home to glorious sea cliffs that soar above the crashing waves of the ocean. A popular spot to view Slieve League is from Bunglass, which you can reach along a narrow road from Teelin.

          5. Catch a glimpse of dolphins at Croaghaun

            The northern slope of Croaghaun is home to the highest sea cliffs in Ireland and some of the highest in Europe. The best way to see the dramatic cliffs is by hiking around or to the summit of the mountain. Croaghaun is also a perfect destination to see wildlife, include peregrine falcons, bottle-nosed dolphins, porpoises, killer whales and humpback whales.

            6. Catch a sunset at Horn Head

              To experience the beauty of the Donegal peninsulas, drive to Horn Head from Dunfanaghy. You and your date will be treated to impressive views of the sea and the Muchkish and Derryveagh mountains, views that are particularly breathtaking as the sun sets.

              7. Visit the northernmost tip of Ireland

                Malin Head is among Ireland’s most exciting viewpoints. Its surrounds are dominated by a rugged coastline and turbulent seas. Situated on the northernmost tip of the island, there are several interesting spots to explore. North of Trawbreaga Bay are large sand dunes at Five Finger Strand, while puffins and other birds can be seen at the Inch Wildfowl Reserve at Inch Lake.

                8. See one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Ireland

                  Cascading down the Torc Mountains, Torc Waterfall is one of Ireland’s prettiest waterfalls. The waterfall is about seven kilometres from Killarney in Killarney National Park. You and your date might also catch a glimpse of red deer in the park, one of the last places in Ireland to see these native animals.

                  9. Admire the view at Ladies View

                    Ladies View is a scenic stop along the N71 between Killarney and Kenmare. The spot’s name goes back to 1861 when Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting admired the view. Situated in the Lakes of Killarney, you and your date will be surrounded by stunning valleys, mountains and lakes.

                    10. Enjoy a scenic drive to Wicklow Gap

                      The drive to Wicklow Gap links Hollywood and Laragh while weaving through the mountains of Glendalough, one of Ireland’s most scenic destinations. One of only two east-west routes across the Wicklow Mountains, Wicklow Gap Road is embraced by gorgeous views.

                      11. Follow in the footsteps of Saint Kevin in County Wicklow

                        Saint Kevin’s Way is a 30-kilometre medieval pilgrim trail from Hollywood that meanders across the enchanting valley of Glendalough. It was here that Saint Kevin spent his later years alone, praying and contemplating. At the end of the trail you will be able to see the remains of eleventh and twelfth century monastic buildings and the tomb of Saint Kevin.

                        12. Take a scenic walk in Wicklow

                          County Wicklow is known for its natural beauty and as a popular walking destination with rugged mountains, ancient peat bogs, lush forests and rolling countryside. One of the best walks is Deputy’s Pass, a short loop trail through woodland.

                            One of the east coast of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches, Brittas Bay is an idyllic setting for walk with your date. The Blue Flag beach is known for its clean and calm waters. There are over three miles of white sand dunes that are visited by rabbits, badgers, and red foxes. Bright pink Pyramidal Orchids also grow on the dunes, creating a truly romantic setting by the ocean.

                            14. Hike to the summit of Diamond Hill

                              You may not be ready to give a diamond or receive one from your date, but Diamond Hill is one of western Ireland’s best hikes. Its slopes are home to forgotten nineteenth century farm buildings and a 5,000-year-old tomb built by the area’s first farmers. The 500-metre hill overlooks the village of Letterfrack in Connemara National Park. You can also see the historic Kylemore Abbey and the Twelve Bens mountain range from the summit.

                              15. Drive along the Renvyle Peninsula for panoramic sea views

                                You and your date can drive along the N59 through unspoilt countryside and alongside rugged mountain ranges of the Renvyle Peninsula. Along the way you will see magnificent views of Ballynakill Bay. On clear days, you can also see the fabled mountain of Croagh Patrick. The route also takes you to the sandy beach of Glassilaun.

                                16. Cycle on the Bog Road

                                  If your date loves to cycle, then the Bog Road in Connemara is a peaceful escape from city life. With the Twelve Bens within view, this route takes you through the Upland Blanket Bog that were shaped by Neolithic and Bronze Age farmers.

                                  17. Look at the ‘coral’ in Carraroe

                                    Carraroe’s Coral Beach in Galway (also known as Trá an Dóilín) is famous for its natural beauty, including coral-like lime formations and pristine sand. At dusk, the silhouettes of traditional Irish fishing boats contrast with the sky’s red and orange hues as the sun sets.

                                    18. Walk in the footsteps of Ireland’s patron saint

                                      Pilgrims have climbed up the holly mountain of Croagh Patrick for over 5,000 years. Pagans regarded this mountain as sacred and Christians now celebrate it in honour of Saint Patrick, who spent forty days on the mountain in the fifth century. Non-pilgrims can appreciate the historical significance of the mountain as well as the panoramic views of Clew Bay and the Mayo countryside.

                                      19. Explore the Sky Road on two wheels

                                        The Sky Road runs along the hills around Clifden Bay and overlooks the islands of Inishturk and Turbot. A great way to experience this scenic route during your date is on bikes from Clifden Beach or the town’s Market Square. A picture-perfect spot to see the charming town is from the summit of Monument Hill.

                                          One of Ireland’s best walking beaches, Bertra Beach is close to the foot of Croagh Patrick. The sandy beach overlooks Clew Bay and its hundreds of islands. The Blue Flag beach is also popular for angling, windsurfing and kitesurfing.

                                          21. Experience rural landscapes along the Copper Coast

The west side of the island offers views of Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and filming location for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Bray Head and Geokaun Mountain also offers monumental sea views.

                                              23. Experience Ireland’s culture and history in Inis Mor

                                                There are more than fifty monuments linked to pagan, Celtic and Christian heritage in Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay. This is the place to go if your date is interested in Irish culture and history. At the same time, the coastal landscape is breathtaking.

                                                24. Explore Ireland’s most attractive town

                                                  Ardmore in County Waterford is one of the country’s most attractive towns. Originally founded by Saint Declan in the fourth century, the fishing town was also the setting of Nora Roberts’ romantic series ‘Gallaghers of Ardmore’.

                                                  25. Go for a peaceful drive along County Mayo’s west coast

On Achill Island, a 19-kilometres stretch of the route allows you and your date to venture to secluded cliffs shaped by thunderous waves.

                                                    Advertising

                                                      Close to Greencastle is Stroove Beach, a welcoming spot for a cosy picnic for two. The small sandy beach is also close to Inishowen Head and the historic Shroove Lighthouse.

                                                      27. Get inspired in Tolkien’s Middle Earth

                                                        JRR Tolkien visited The Burren while writing his classic ‘The Lord of The Rings’ and the unique landscape helped shape his vision for Middle Earth. The haunting hills of The Burren are made of craggy karst limestone that are lined with cracks. If your date is a Tolkien fan, they will appreciate Pol na Gollum. The cave, also known as the Hole of Gollum, may have also inspired the writer.

                                                        28. Walk the Cavan Way is the northern midlands of Ireland

The historic fishing town with its colourful buildings and narrow streets is a peaceful escape from the bustle of nearby Cork.

                                                            30. Discover the beautiful wilderness of Glenveagh

                                                              Why Am I Exhausted? The Real Causes and How to Fix It Forever

                                                              Why Am I Exhausted? The Real Causes and How to Fix It Forever

                                                              Do you say “I’m exhausted” all the time? Do you constantly feel exhausted for no reason?

                                                              Fatigue shows up in many ways including pure exhaustion, the inability to concentrate, anger, frustration and behavioral issues, memory problems, decreased work performance, and slower reaction times. Chronic fatigue has also been linked to medical problems including obesity, hypertension, depression, diabetes, as well as increased automobile accidents.

                                                              We attempt to combat fatigue with coffee, sugar, energy drinks, vitamins and a variety of other products that claim to increase our energy and stamina. But what if your exhaustion is trying to tell you something?

                                                              If you’re getting enough sleep and you’re still feeling exhausted, it’s time to stop, take a step back and look at what else is contributing to your exhaustion.

                                                              As a life-coach and consultant with a diverse background, I like to look at things from a holistic view – from multiple levels – including your body, mind and spirit.

                                                              So before you reach for that next cup of coffee, the 3pm sugary snack or the toxic energy drink, let’s look at some other reasons why you might be tired all the time, and more importantly, what you can do about it.

                                                              Here are 11 potential reasons why you’re exhausted even when get enough rest, and what you can do about it.

                                                              1. You are out of alignment mentally, emotionally or spiritually.

                                                              Essentially, you’re off track with who you are and what works for you. Maybe you’re unhappy, unfulfilled, stressed out or just plain bored with some areas of your life. You might be in a relationship that isn’t working, a job you can’t stand or a situation that drains your energy.

                                                              Think about a time in your life when you were in the flow, in the zone, and totally engaged and excited about what you were doing. How much sleep did you need then? Even after only a few hours, my guess is you probably found yourself jumping out of bed in the morning without an alarm clock, excited about embarking on the day.

                                                              On the flipside, think about a time in your life when you were in a relationship or job that zapped your energy. No matter how much sleep you got, you probably found it difficult to get out of bed in the morning and were tempted to hit that snooze button just a few more times.

                                                              We all have things that make us feel great and energized and things that completely zap our energy. Maybe you’re someone who likes to move quickly but you’re drowning in detail; maybe you’re someone who thrives when you are on top of things and you’re feeling like everything is completely out of control. Or maybe you thrive on spontaneity and variety and you’re bored with your life.

                                                              When I asked my 11-year-old daughter why she thought people are tired even when we get enough rest, here’s what she said.

                                                              “Maybe people are bored and so they’re tired.”

                                                              Ever wonder why you can’t drag your kid out of bed for school on the weekdays but they pop out of bed on the weekend? Perhaps this is the culprit.

                                                              I had a client share this sentiment recently as she described a period of time in her life: “My boss sucked, the work was boring and it made me tired all the time.”

                                                              Exactly.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              When you’re doing things that align with who you are, in environments that align with what you need, you will feel more energized and alive. On the contrary, when you’re in environments that go against your grain, you will feel drained and de-energized.

                                                              What can you do?

                                                              Take a step back and identify what’s not working. Figure out what you want and work towards it. Do things that give you energy.

                                                              What makes you feel healthy and alive, energized and excited? What gets you in the flow and makes you feel most like you? Aim to get more of that in your life.

                                                              How to Get Motivated and Be Happy Every Day When You Wake Up

                                                              2. You are out of alignment physically.

                                                              When we are structurally out of alignment, it can cause all sorts of issues. When things aren’t moving properly, it makes it hard for your body to do its job. Not to mention, pain is exhausting and zaps energy. And we are pretty hard on our bodies, aren’t we? We drag them around and tell them what to do. They need to be taken care of too.

                                                              Here’s what Chiropractor, Dr. Ruth Ziemba, who specializes in NSA (Network Spinal Analysis) has to say:

                                                              All of life is energy. We are energy. Any disturbance or blockages to the energy flow creates imbalances… Physical, mental and emotional stressors can cause subluxations (misalignment of the vertebrae) which interfere with signals getting clearly through your body. This can result in many health problems, including fatigue and insomnia.

                                                              Recently, I was feeling tired all the time – and felt like I was doing “everything else” right. So, I went to see my chiropractor and a cranial sacral therapist. Two days later, I felt much more energized and clear in my head.

                                                              I love the analogy I was once given by a chiropractor: “It doesn’t matter how well you can play an instrument if the instrument is out of tune.”

                                                              Such is true with our bodies.

                                                              What can you do?

                                                              Get some body work. This might include getting a massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, reiki, cranial sacral therapy – anything that works for you.

                                                              Don’t know where to start? Ask a friend or colleague for a recommendation. Even better if you have a friend in the field who can refer you to another practitioner. And make sure to schedule regular body work, not just when you need it.

                                                              3. You are not eating right (or enough).

                                                              What – and how much – you eat has a significant effect on your energy levels.

                                                              While there are many different diet protocols, there is one thing all the experts can agree on: sugar and processed foods make you feel sluggish and exhausted. They make your blood sugar go haywire, causing you to feel a brief period of energy followed by a crash.

                                                              Paradoxically, those are the very things we reach for when we need a hit of energy.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              What can you do?

                                                              I’ve found two things to be consistently true:

                                                              One, you need to eat real, clean food. The food you’re putting into your body is either real or it’s not. Avoid processed foods and especially refined sugars. You’re going to feel so much better for it.

                                                              Two, find what works for YOU. Gluten-free, Paleo, Mediterranean, high-fat, plant-based, you name it. Experts and well-meaning friends and family may tell you what’s best, but no one knows your body as well as you do. Pay attention, do you feel energized or fatigued after you eat certain foods? What works – and what doesn’t for YOU? Our bodies have intrinsic wisdom if we are willing to listen – and hear them.

                                                              4. You are not really sleeping.

                                                              We’ve established that you’re (hopefully) getting enough sleep. But are you getting enough high-quality sleep?

                                                              Some of the top causes of poor sleep quality include: being on electronics right before bed, interruptions, an uncomfortable mattress or the wrong pillow, grinding your teeth, an inconsistent sleep routine or the fact that you’re not getting through all of the sleep cycles.

                                                              What can you do?

                                                              Start with the basics:

                                                              Get off your electronics at least an hour before bed, make sure you have a comfortable pillow and mattress, set a consistent sleep routine, reduce outside noise and sleep in a well-darkened room or wear an eye mask.

                                                              If you have difficulty falling asleep or have poor sleep quality, this guide will help you get a good night’s sleep back:

                                                              Poor Sleep Quality Comes from All the Things You Do Since Morning

                                                              5. You are stressed or worrying too much.

                                                              When you’re stressed, you produce more cortisol (the stress hormone), which can significantly affect your sleep.[1] This is why one of the common side effects of stress is sleep problems.

                                                              On top of stress hormones, excessive worry can drain your energy. When you worry, you’re using energy. It’s like when you have an app on your phone that takes up a lot of battery and you have it constantly running the background, your battery will drain more quickly. Such is true with worry and stress.

                                                              I think of this very simply. We all start the day with 100 units of energy to use throughout the day. If you’re using half of your energy units worrying, you’re inevitably going to be tired.

                                                              What can you do?

                                                              Find things that reduce your stress levels. I’ve seen clients have great success with yoga, meditation and exercise. Worrying too much? Get a clear plan in place to take action on what’s worrying you.

                                                                6. You are not breathing deeply enough.

                                                                Deep breathing increases circulation by bringing oxygen to your muscles and brain. This increased oxygen content in the bloodstream leads to greater energy and healthier muscles, organs and tissues.

                                                                To highlight the benefits of deep breathing, I reached out to longtime Yoga Instructor & Ayurveda Wellness Counselor, Vivica Schwartz. Here’s what she shared:[2]

                                                                Advertising

                                                                “Most people breathe in to the chest only (shallow breathing) and don’t allow the breath to reach deeper into the abdominal region, due to stress and anxiety. Shifting the breath down, so that it expands the belly (and all the muscles that comprise the diaphragm) is one of the best ways to shift our awareness, quiet the mind, release tension and increase our energy levels”.

                                                                What happened when you started to read this one? Did you start breathing more deeply? Great, you’re already on your way.

                                                                What can you do?

                                                                Make a conscious effort to breathe deeply, more often. Try this from Vivica:

                                                                1. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your lower belly.
                                                                2. Breath smoothly in and out through the nose, noticing how your breath expands three-dimensionally in the ribcage.
                                                                3. Now begin to shift the inhalation into the lower abdomen first, so that the lower hand rises first, then fill the chest area.
                                                                4. Reverse the process on the exhalation, emptying the chest area first, then the lower belly.
                                                                5. Continue like this for a few rounds, visualizing the diaphragm contracting and pushing down and expanding the belly area.

                                                                7. You are hanging out with the wrong crowd.

                                                                Have you ever known someone who “sucks the life out of you”? After spending time together, you feel tired, drained and exhausted? “Energy vampires” do just that, they suck your energy. It doesn’t matter how much sleep you’re getting; if you’re spending time with people who drain your energy, you’re going to feel tired.

                                                                What can you do?

                                                                Grab some garlic and your stake and ditch the energy vampires. Make a conscious effort to hang out with people who feed your soul and make you feel energized and alive.

                                                                If you need a little help to spot these people out, here it is: 15 Signs Of Negative People

                                                                8. You are not moving.

                                                                There’s been a lot of research conducted over many years that shows physical activity and exercise improves energy and decreases fatigue.

                                                                In a widely acknowledged 2006 study published in Psychological Bulletin, researchers analyzed 70 studies on exercise and fatigue which involved more than 6,800 people. Over 90% of the studies showed the same thing: Sedentary people who completed a regular exercise program reported improved fatigue compared to those that did not exercise.

                                                                What can you do?

                                                                Get moving! Find ways to increase your exercise and movement. General guidelines are 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise or 75 minutes per week of vigorous activity (or a combination of the two). This can be as simple as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, walking 20 minutes a day or participating in a sport you enjoy.

                                                                Here’re some tips for you: How to Instantly Fall in Love With Moving and Start Shaking off the Extra Pounds

                                                                9. You are dehydrated.

                                                                The human body is composed of 50-65% water. Some parts of our bodies, like our brain, heart and lungs are more than 70% water. This means even mild dehydration can cause your energy levels to fall.

                                                                Fatigue is a telltale sign you are dehydrated. In fact, in a survey of 300 doctors in the UK, 1 in 5 patients who saw their doctor for symptoms such as fatigue and tiredness simply weren’t drinking enough water.

                                                                What can you do?

                                                                First and foremost, drink enough water. A simple rule of thumb is eight 8-ounce glasses per day. And before you reach for your coffee in the morning, reach for a glass of water first.

                                                                However, Doctor and hydration expert Dr. Zach Bush noted,

                                                                “Proper hydration is not simply infusing your body with water. More specifically, it’s about getting the water inside your cells. To do that, you need to improve the electrical charges across your cellular membranes. Strategies that improve the electrical charge across your membranes include: reducing EMF (electromagnetic field) exposure, increasing electrolytes, and boosting your fiber intake.”

                                                                So, try this intensive hydration protocol: Drink 4 ounces of water every 30 minutes from 7am-7pm for 3 days. During this intense hydration, add electrolytes to every other 4-ounce dose. Then give your body a break from food and water between 7pm and 7am.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                10. You are too busy.

                                                                You know the saying, “If you want something done, ask a busy person.” I say, leave the busy person alone. They clearly have enough on their plate.

                                                                I work with many clients, especially moms, who wonder why they are so tired all the time. When I ask them to tell me about “a day in their life”, I get something like this: 6am wake-up , exercise, get the kids off to school, work, drive to after-school activities, get dinner on the table, do hosework, coordinate schedules, bath and bed time (for the kids of course), and then back to work after the kids go to bed. And they wonder why they are tired?

                                                                I get it. I’ve been there and I have to be careful of this myself. As a working mom of three young girls, who also wants to be social and active in my community, I know all too well the life of being busy. I’ve had to reign it in, create strategies and make very conscious decisions.

                                                                What can you do?

                                                                Look at your life as an outside observer or “fly on the wall”. What do you notice? Maybe you need to learn to say no? Perhaps you need to take a step back and identify what’s most important? Or set better boundaries?

                                                                Perhaps you need to delegate more, outsource or just get some stuff off YOUR plate! Take just ONE thing and start from there.

                                                                If you want extra advice on this, check out this guide:

                                                                11. There is something else going on.

                                                                If you’ve tried everything above, you are getting enough sleep and you are still tired, you may want to see your doctor or healthcare professional to uncover any underlying issues.

                                                                Amongst other things, what leads to exhaustion could be medication side effects and other health concerns including thyroid and adrenal dysfunction, anemia and sleep apnea.

                                                                What can you do?

                                                                Talk to your doctor. Seriously. Make an appointment.

                                                                If you’re sleeping enough and doing all the “right” things above and you still feel tired, it’s important to identify what could be the cause.

                                                                The bottom line

                                                                If you’re sleeping enough and still find yourself tired and exhausted all the time, it’s time to step back and see which of these reasons resonate with you.

                                                                In order to get a different result, you have to DO something differently. In order to be more energized and less exhausted, you’re going to need to make some changes.

                                                                What changes will you make? Are you going to eat better, exercise more, stay hydrated, take something off your plate, reassess the job you hate or relationship that’s draining you?

                                                                Take a few minutes right now and think of 1-3 things you’re going to try. Write them down in your journal, on your phone or send an email to yourself.

                                                                Change takes action and it’s time for change. You’ve got this. Take action now and your energy levels will be glad you did!
