Ireland is full to the brim of magical locations where you can pledge your heart to your beloved, so if youre thinking of popping the question on Valentines Day then check out our guide to the most romantic spots in Ireland.
If you happen to be in Dublin then theres no better place than the Grand Canal running along the citys Southside, made famous in the literary works of incurable romantic and renowned Dublin poet Patrick Kavanagh. Walk hand in hand along the leafy waterfront amidst the quaint Georgian terraces, and pluck up the courage to ask for your sweethearts hand in marriage.
Alternatively follow the literary traces of Dublin writer James Joyce to Sandycove Tower and propose under the dramatic Dublin skyline.
Elsewhere, the beautiful village of Inistioge in County Kilkenny is also a great place to go with your nearest and dearest, set in amongst rolling green countryside and beautiful woodlands, its a favourite romantic haven for many Irish people and an ideal place to declare your love.
The rolling dunes and cascading Kerry mountains provide yet another beautiful backdrop to ask your partner that question youve been practising in the mirror, so hire a horse drawn carriage and gallivant through the beautiful lakes and landscapes of Killarney National Park. Your loved ones heart is sure to melt in your hands at the Torc Waterfall!
And if youre in County Cork then Blarney Castle is an ideal place to get down on one knee, just be sure to kiss the Blarney Stone first for good luck!
