DublinThis was technically my last day of the trip and also the most fantastic day also. The Potter fan in me had been waiting for the day since the first day. Yep. The Cliffs of Moher, where the iconic Harry Potter wand scene was shot. You can book a guided tour to the Cliffs considering its a tedious job to reach the location. I booked mine on Viator, in case you need help and it was pretty good!The location is a good 4 hour away, enough to catch a nap considering this place requires a lot of walking. My booked tour included a ropewalk to one of the mountains before the cliffs and it was a fun adventurous walk crossing mountains on a rope bridge.Talking about the Cliffs of Moher, its one hell of an experience. The beautiful location is a mix of adventure and scenery. The walk to the cliffs can be a little tricky and stony and tiring but its worth it. Gets extremely windy at times, but the view is to watch for! DO NOT MISS THIS!Well, thats what unfolded on my 10 day Scotland/Ireland trip and its been a lifetime of an experience! Absolutely recommend these places for your next trip to the UK! Get Packing Folks!

My personal booty-call from Sligo was the fabled Yeats Society/Center - a homage paid to the legendary Irish poet William Butler Yeats. Located in the city center, the Yeats Society has regular readings and performances of his work. At a little known village nearby - Drumcliffe, lie the remains of this ridiculously talented man! Sligo is also known for its dainty little pubs, that come to life in the evening with some great trad sessions and overflowing craic!

The best part about Killarney National Park, outside of it's abundant natural beauty of course, is the existence of charming horse-drawn buggies! A mode of transport long extinct in most parts of the world, it can be experienced in abundance while exploring the National Park! Dominated primarily by its three lakes - Lough Leane, Muckross Lake & the Upper Lake, the National Park is more than 10000 hectares of pure relentless natural beauty. Reserve at least one whole day to explore at leisure!
