Based in The Burren National Park, the brilliantly strange Aillwee Cave is a great place to spend an hour or two.

2. Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge

Linking the tiny island of Carrickarede to the mainland of Ireland, this famous rope bridge is perfect for adrenaline junkies and curious people alike. The bridge is one of the lesser-known things to do in Ireland but is definitely worth a walk across for the stunning views alone.


3. Belvedere House

Belvedere House is a stately house and gardens situated in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. The House is rich in history, featuring interesting sites such as the Jealous Wall and the shores of Lough Ennell. The gardens also offer an adventure, rambling through trees and flowers to find swing-sets and streams.
