Contributor Zdronu presents his spectacular adventure in Ireland from a drone. In one week, he visited iconic places like the Cliffs of Moher, Rock of Cashel, Kilkenny Castle, Drombeg Stone Circle, Burren National Park, Galway, and Charles Fort. It's especially impressive given the weather: due to hazardous conditions created by hurricane Ophelia, there were times he couldn't even fly. The aerial footage he managed to capture of Ireland's lush green landscapes and ancient structures is outstanding.

Welcome to Wicklow

Drone and Photo Services

The city of Wicklow, Ireland is what's known as a "county town", roughly the equivalent of the county seat in the USA - ie, it's the most important town in its county, which in this case is also its namesake.  Located a bit south of Dublin on the eastern (Irish Sea) side of the island, the area around the town was settled no later than the First Milennium BC.  The town itself dates to the 9th century AD as a Viking base and harbor.    Check out this beautiful drone footage of the idyllic town by Drone and Photo Services.
