The face of Ireland – Most Beautiful Places to see in Ireland – Brian Cunningham

Brian Cunningham was born and raised in the city of Teelin in Donegal, Ireland, a city well known as the Face of Ireland, being one of the most beautiful villages in the country. Brian is an executive producer and managing director of country shows but still has a passion for his city. At just sixteen he produced his first every charity cd and tape called Helping Me, Helping You which raised large sums of money for his nearby hospice in Donegal. Brian Cunningham also started a yearly concert called ‘An evening of country music’ which used to be held on the first Monday of September every year in Donegal, likewise The Christmas Country Concert Tour every year and now has become a must for all country music fan lovers.

Because of his passion for his city and his country, Brian Cunningham decided to choose the most beautiful places to see in Ireland. The country of Ireland is known for its unique and fascinating landscapes and smaller cities, like the one of Brian, that show the reality of how stunning and charismatic Ireland can be.


Galway is a medieval city on the western part of Ireland. With Spanish arches and an impressive Cathedral, the city is a mixture of architecture and a vibrant cultural scene with its picturesque streets, colorful portals, pubs, and shops. Was already voted one of the sexiest cities in the world. Brian Cunningham tip is to explore the mountains, near to the city, of Connemara National Park.


Inisheer, Aran Island

Aran Islands are famous for the roads without cars, being the perfect place to experience a traditional Irish village. It’s made of small farming communities that still speak Gaelic as their first language and drive pony traps. Besides the charming population, Brian Cunningham reminds that you can find historic forts teetering on cliff tops, endless sandy beaches, and miles of rugged coastline.


For Brian Cunningham is the best place to see and feel the medieval times is this city colonized by the Normans. Kilkenny is in the middle of the way between Dublin and Cork and its impressive sights of the castle, standing above the bend of the River Nore, will make you breathless.


Considered the westernmost point of Europe, the Dingle Peninsula has a rocky coastline, alternating with kilometers of beaches and is washed by the beautiful and cold Atlantic Ocean. Following Brian Cunningham advice, The Oceanworld Aquarium is a great place to visit here or you can take a walk in its mystical and colorful streets. It is the starting point for all hiking trails.



Clifden has only around 2000 inhabitants, situated on the western end of Ireland. For Brian Cunningham you can relax in its colorful center, be amazed by the sight of Clifden Castle or go to the Connemara National Park, considered to protect one of the finest nature in the island.

Cliffs of Moher

With heights of 203m, it towers 214 meters over the Atlantic Ocean in western Ireland. Its extension o from the village of Doolin for around 8km to Hags Head in County Clare, stretching over Galway Bay, the distant Twelve Pins mountain range, and the northern Maum Turk Mountains. Brian Cunningham tip here is if you want to see various species of birds nestling in the cliff ledges, take a 10-minute walk beyond the visitor center.

Antrim Coastal Walk

Brian Cunningham adores its 33 miles of beautiful landscapes, with the start at Portstewart and finishing in Ballycastle. The most popular stop is the Giant’s Causeway with around 40,000 hexagonal stone columns made by a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago.



Doolin is famous for being the center of traditional Irish music. Brian Cunningham says you need to stop at the 150-year-old Gus O’Connor’s for a medley of sound and sensations. The town is just four miles from the Cliffs of Moher.


The place with the oldest remnants of vertebrate life on land in the world, dating from 385 million years ago, can be found on the Iveragh Peninsula. There are two ways of connection with the Valentia Island, in the southwest of Ireland, by a car ferry from Reenard Point or by a bridge from Portmagee. In this island, according to Brian Cunningham, you can visit the Glanleam House and its gardens with a collection of rare plants as a result of its sub-tropical climate. Or you can travel to Skellig Michael, an ancient monastic island.
