14 of the most breathtaking views in the province of Ulster, Ireland

IRELAND IS one beautiful country.

Whether it's miles of green fields and forests stretched out before you; the city's ancient walls and castles cast in orange light at dusk, or a series of islands standing proudly in the wild Atlantic ocean, every visitor to Ireland comes away completely in awe of the country's breathtaking beauty.

If we tried to list every gorgeous view in Ireland we'd be here forever, so we at the Irish Post have decided to break it down by province.

We've already covered Munster, Leinster, and Connacht, now get ready to explore the counties of Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Fermanagh, Antrim, Tyrone, Derry, Armagh and Down in the province of Ulster.

It's a unique province, not just for its gorgeous coastal scenery but because only three of its nine counties are in the Irish Republic: Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal, with the remaining six making up Northern Ireland.

But we're here to show you some of the most awe-inspiring views on either side of the border.
