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.

Derryveagh Mountains, Loughcrew, and More

Dublin on Covid-19 Lockdown


Dublin City Lockdown COVID-19 , cinematic drone


Ireland was fairly quick to take decisive action as the Covid-19 epidemic took hold in the winter of 2020: from its first confirmed case on February 29, it was less than two weeks before the Prime Minister ordered all of the country's schools closed.  On March 27, a much more restrictive order went into place which amounted to "shelter in place" for most of Ireland's population.  In this rather eerie drone video from muno.drone explore, you'll see the great capital city of Dublin on virtual lockdown.

Moher, Dublin, and More

For a first upload to AirVuz, Visual Captain brings us this excellent mini tour of Ireland.  Using a combination of drone and ground camera footage, the video opens with some nice shots of the famed Cliffs of Moher on Ireland's western coast.  At the :30 mark, there are some nice shots of Galway, the largest city in Western Ireland.  Then it's on to Dublin, first to the Guinness StoreHouse and then to some sweeping nighttime aerials of the capital city.   Other featured spots include Bushmills, Balleycastle, and County Antrim in Northern Ireland.

Cork: Treasure of Southern Ireland


Cork, Ireland


Cork is the most important city in southern Ireland and the country's second largest overall after the capital Dublin.  It's in the province of Munster, at the mouth of the River Lee.  Cork was founded by the Vikings in about the 10th century on the site of an earlier monastic settlement, and played an important role in the violent struggles with the English over the centuries.  Contributor Asheville Aerial used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create an amazing video of this great city of the south.  

The Cliffs of Moher


Magical Cliffs of Moher (Ireland) by Drone - 4K Shots


The Cliffs of Moher are one of the great natural wonders of Ireland, and attract over 1.5 million visitors per year.  They are located one of the peninsulas of the western part of the island on the Wild Atlantic Way, in County Claire.  The cliffs run for a stretch of about 13 km (around 8 mi.) and reach a height of up to almost 215 meters (about 710 ft.).  The cliffs have appeared as filming locations in numerous movies, probably most famously as the Cliffs of Insanity in the 1987 cult classic, Princess Bride. 

Rock of Cashel: Irish Historical Treasure


Rock of Cashel


The Rock of Cashel is one of the most recognized cultural sites in all of Ireland.  It is closely associated with what was perhaps the seminal event of Irish history: the conversion by St. Patrick of the King of Munster to Christianity in the 5th century AD.  The building ruins remaining on the ancient site include a tower, a chapel and a cathedral.  In this excellent aerial video, contributor and pilot Ashville Aerial gives us a drone tour of this Antiquity-age site in County Tipperary in southeast Ireland.

Ireland's Galtees Mountains



Ben Freely...

Ireland's Galtees Mountains lie in the southeastern part of the country, covering portions of Counties Limerick and Tipperary.  The highest mountain in this range is Mt. Galtymore, which reaches an altitude of approximately 900 meters (about 3k ft) above sea level.  In this video, contributor Ben Freely flies his DJI Mavic Pro drone over this highly distinctive looking mountain range, which runs for about 30 km (just under 20 mi.).  The bird's eye view of the green-yellow hills is amazing to behold!

Shane Mc G...

This drone video by content creator and pilot Shane McGrath Photography showcases some of the best aerial views we've seen of the magnificent western coastline of Ireland, otherwise known as the Wild Atlantic Way.  The crazily-jagged shape of the coastline led to the Way being a primary filming location for the 2017 installment of the Star Wars series, The Last Jedi. For example, the first shot in the video is of Loop Head Lighthouse in County Clare; the cliffs here appear in a scene in the movie.

IRELAND III - County Mayo, Galway & Clare

Nathan Jer...

In this video, top contributor Nathan Jermy treats us to an epic aerial tour of the mid-section of Ireland's western (Atlantic) coastline: north to south, Counties Mayo, Galway, and Clare.  This is the heart of the famed Wild Atlantic Way, a coastline which appears fantastically complex on a map and fantastically beautiful from the air.   The lush, rolling hills paired with the thrashing waves of the sea beating the rocks and the ancient ruins that are scattered between make for an idyllic location. 

County Donegal in Ulster


IRELAND - Donegal Revisited II

Nathan Jer...

Ireland's County Donegal is one of the six counties of Ulster, which is the name for the historical region of northern Ireland.  It is perhaps the most distinctive of Ireland's counties, partly because its main borders are not with the Republic but rather with the counties of Northern Ireland, the portion of the island which has remained part of the UK.  Its seemingly endless coastline is a source of supreme natural beauty, as you'll see in this beautiful drone video by contributor Nathan Jermy.  

Waterford: Ireland's Oldest City under Quarantine


Irelands Oldest City on Lockdown


Here's an excellent aerial view of Waterford, Ireland during the quarantine days of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot waterfordepiclocations.  Ireland's oldest city, Waterford is located in County Munster on the southeastern coast of the Emerald Isle.  Like the rest of the country, this harbor town was subject to social distancing measures imposed by the central government soon after the first confirmed novel coronavirus infection was announced on February 29th.

If you looked at a county map of the island of Ireland without national boundaries, you might think that County Donegal is part of the UK's Northern Ireland region.  In fact, despite its northern location, it's actually one of the three Ulster counties which lie in the Republic of Ireland.  It's a spectacularly beautiful area, with a distinct culture which reflects a blend of Northern and Republican Ireland.  In this video, you'll get an epic bird's eye view of County Donegal, compliments of Nathan Jermy.

Friary of Ross: Galway's Great Monastery


Friary of Ross (Ross Errilly Friary)


Friary Ross is one of the best-preserved medieval monasteries in Western Europe.  It is located in County Galway on the west coast of Ireland.  Sometimes referred to as "Ross Abbey", it is considered a cultural treasure of Ireland is protected under national conservation statutes.  Contributor and pilot Ashville Aerial used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create a remarkable aerial tour of this centuries-old site.  Although the monastery has fallen into disuse, it continues to be used as a burial grounds.

Check out these stunning aerial views of Ireland's County Sligo, compliments of Peter and Loki. Sligo is located in the northwestern part of the island, with a coastline along the Wild Atlantic Way.  The video opens with an epic shot of Classiebawm Castle, a 19th century manor house on the Mullaghmore Peninsula.  Then it's on to the star of the show: the flat-topped Benbulbin rock formation.  Considered one of Ireland's great natural and cultural treasures, it featured prominently in the works of the great 19th century poet W.B. Yeats.

The Charles Fortress in County Cork




For a one minute aerial tour of some of the cultural highlights of Ireland, look no further than this epic drone video from mofromamreeka.  His 60 second video will take you over some of the castles, baronial estates, and quaint seaside villages for which the Emerald Isle is famous.  Much of the video is shot around the Charles Fortress.  This star-shaped fortification was built in the 17th century in County Cork to defend against possible amphibious invasions (which in fact never transpired).  

Ireland's Stunning Wicklow Mountains


Relax and Breath


Contributor and pilot Asheville Aerial created this spectacular drone video of Ireland's Wicklow Mountains, a range which runs through County Wicklow on the country's eastern coast.  The range's spectacular peaks and valleys present some of the island's most iconic natural scenery, and the area is becoming known as the "Hollywood of Europe" in reference to the many feature films which were at least partially shot in the Wicklow's.  This list includes Braveheart and Michael Collins, to name a few.       

Skellig: Ireland's Star Wars Islands


Skellig Islands Ireland in 4K


Papa.drone gives us a drone's eye view of the Star Wars Islands, two islands off the coast of southern Ireland.  Great Skellig (aka Skellig Michael) and Little Skellig are located southwest of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry.  Once primarily known for Skellig Michael's 6th-century monastery, the islands burst into public consciousness in 2015 as the shooting location for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker's hideaway in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), appearing again in The Last Jedi (2017)

Kerry: Ireland's Southern Tip


Kerry | Ireland


County Kerry is the county which occupies Ireland's southwestern coast, at the south end of the Wild Atlantic Way.  It's part of the province of Munster.  As you'll see from this amazing aerial video by Jogiisland, the county's coastline is a series of fantastically shaped peninsula which jut out into the North Atlantic Ocean.  Dingle, the northernmost and probably the best-known of these appendages, was the filming location for the 1970 feature movie Ryan's Daughter starring Robert Mitchum.

As more effective artillery emerged in Early Modern Europe, the old tower-style fortresses became virtually obsolete.  Beginning in Italy in the 15th century, bastion-type fortresses began to emerge which were designed to be defendable against the ever-more-powerful cannon.  One of the best examples of a bastion-style fortification is the Charles Fortress, which you'll see in this excellent drone video by Mark's Mavic 2.  It was built in Kinsale Harbor in County Cork and completed in 1682.
