Ireland, you're too beautiful sometimes.

We know that as we head into winter, Ireland can seem a bit grim, so we decided to remind you of its natural beauty. Prepare yourselves for an onslaught of visual goodness.

1. The Cliffs of Moher. Because where else would you possibly begin such a list?

3. Or maybe Bray, which looks incredible by day...

The cross on top of Bray Head was actually placed there because Jesus stated in his will: "If I have to go through the whole crucifixion thing again, I at least want to have a decent view."

It's true. Check the Bible.

4. ... but even better by night

Jesus loved twinkly lights.

That's also in the Bible.
