This photo was the winner of last year’s “Love Travel” photo contest.  We couldn’t get over how beautifully she captured the Cliffs of Moher.

Londonderry

DerryContiki’s Brooke S. went on Contiki’s Ireland trip and explored the fascinating walled city of Londonderry or ‘Derry’.  Check out all the amazing Bogside murals on the city walls.

The Aran Islands

Galway is an Irish Town where Gaelic is still spoken in the streets, and you can take a quick jaunt to the stunning Aran Islands.  Check out these sheer cliffs on the islands, a 40-minute boat ride away from Galway and offer an amazing opportunity for some fun photos!
