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.

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

IRELAND - Donegal Revisited II

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.

Content creator and pilot Mark's Mavic 2 brings us this DJI Mavic Pro 2 footage of Ireland's Lough Tay, otherwise known as Guinness Lake.  It's set in the Wicklow Mountains of Wicklow, the easternmost of Ireland's counties.  The Guinness Lake nickname comes from the fact that much of the property around the northern shore of the lake is owned by the famous beer brewing family.  The lake was referenced in Bertrand Russell's bestselling autobiography; he visited Wicklow twice and spent much time walking around the lake.

Contributor and pilot Mark's Mavic 2 used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to create this stunning video of the lighthouse at the Old Head of Kinsale in County Cork, Ireland.  The spot is famous for being the nearest land point to the sinking of the RMS Lusitania by a German U-Boat during World War I. On May 7, 1915, the Cunard-operated ship was torpedoed about 19 km (11 mi.) from here, killing almost 1,200 people.  The ensuing worldwide outrage caused Germany to temporarily suspend unrestricted submarine warfare.

Contributor Mark's Mavic 2 used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to create this beautiful aerial of a spot in the northeastern corner of the Republic of Ireland.  The town of Carringford derives its name from the Norse phrase for "Narrow Sea Inlet of the Hag".  It is situated in County Louth on Carlingford Lough, a fjord, north of which lies the UK's Northern Ireland region.  The video features footage of King John's Castle, a 12th century enclosure castle built in the town's harbor which is one of the top attractions here.

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.
