We love to take pictures and that is a given and in Ireland we are no different to anywhere else in the world. The Midlands is full of astonishing landscapes as well as popular historical sights and therefore one of the top destinations in Ireland and also perfect for holiday breaks!

Naturally, many people like to share their adventures and what they experience on Instagram every day. The folks at the Maldron Hotel Portlaoise asked themselves: “what are the most Instagrammed spots in the Midlands?”


For their in-depth research, they analysed the most popular locations in the Midlands using over 30,000 hashtags to see which spots in Co. Offaly, Co. Laois, Co. Longford and Co. Westmeath are posted most on Instagram by locals and tourists. It is a nice spot down there and I have stayed in this hotel myself and there is much to see and do.

The Top 10, in list format are:

1. Clonmacnoise
2. Birr Castle Gardens
3. Rock of Dunamase
4. Emo Court
5. Lough Ree
6. Lough Boora Discovery Park
7. Sean’s Bar
8. Charleville Castle
9. Lough Ennell
10. Slieve Bloom Mountains
