Known as the "Valley of Two Lakes", this area within Wicklow Mountains National Park is complete with monastic sites, sprawling meadows and rolling hills covered in purple heather. It's the perfect spot to combine footage of natural beauty with the history of days long since past. The monastic remains are dated back to the 6th century and are said to have been founded by Saint Kevin.

The park is home to another monastery known as Kylemore Abbey and is contained with the Kylemore Castle and estate. The grounds are open to the public and remain in good condition.
Here's the spot to capture video in Ireland of a truly traditional village that will make you feel as though you've stepped back in time. Roads are free from vehicles, locals still drive pony traps and farm small plots of land and many speak the traditional Gaelic language. The area's numerous cliffs boast historic forts no longer in use and the lovely sandy beaches and sections of jagged coastline provide plenty of natural beauty as a backdrop.
Listed as an UNESCO World Heritage site, this wonder of nature was formed from ancient volcanoes and stretches along a section of coastline in Northern Ireland. The rock columns are said to have the appearance of giant stepping stones and are so uniform in appearance that one could believe they were created at the hands of a giant human carver.
For absolute top notch views and scenes of natural beauty, the Cliffs of Moher are a must see while in Ireland. Rising over 200 meters above the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast, these cliffs provide views of the northern Maum Turk Mountains and Twelve Pins mountain range as well as the sapphire blue waters of the Galway Bay.
