What with its scenic landscapes and poetic history, Ireland is the perfect place to ask your beloved to marry you. If you are planning to pop the question on this romantic island, do it in one of these ten fairy-tale Irish proposal locations.

While you’ll definitely want to avoid following in the footsteps of the unfortunate man who got stranded on a cliff face after proposing to his girlfriend in California earlier this year, Ireland’s Cliffs of Moher are a pretty awe-inspiring place to propose. A staggering 390 feet above the ocean at their highest point, they attract visits from around a million people every year – so make sure to organise your trip for as quiet a time as possible.

2. Carrauntoohil, County Kerry

For adventurous couples, summiting Carrauntoohil might be the ultimate romantic experience. As Ireland’s tallest mountain – it soars more than 3,000 feet high – its peak affords vistas across the infinitely picturesque Iveragh peninsula (home to the Ring of Kerry).
