St. Patrick's Day Special - 5 Scenic Places to Take Photos in Ireland

Now is the time where everyone is transitioning from "seeing red" for Valentine's Day to "being green" for St. Patrick's Day, we thought it would be good to remind all photographers that there is much scenic beauty to be had - and great photo opps galore - in lovely Ireland. If you happen to be one of the lucky ones to be celebrating St. Patty's Day on the Blarney Stone side of the pond, we suggest you put these sites on your itinerary.

No. 4 is a little misleading. While there are plenty of photo ops at Trinity College, inside the library is not one of them. Also, Handel's "Messiah" was first performed a few blocks away from St. Patrick's Cathedral.
