This book is full of some of Ireland's biggest attractions, some will you heard of already, like the famous Jameson's Distillery, the Dramatic Cliffs of Moher not forgetting Belfast's Amazing Titanic Museum. However Ireland also prides itself on its huge number of hidden gem attractions. We have awarded Beaulieu Historic House & Gardens our coveted historical importance gem. I did this simply because Beaulieu has history seeping out of every brick and acre of this fascinating place. The tour guide that took me around had me in awe from the minute he opened his mouth, till the minute my tour ended, and the fact that I didn't want the tour to end, is a true testament to how amazing this house is. As Beaulieu is still a lived in family home, to save disappointment, I would suggest booking in advance rather than just calling in. But a trip to the Boyne valley is not complete without a visit to the wonderful Beaulieu.
