This cute little Jack Russell–beagle cross, Toby, really tugged on our heart strings as he posed for his picture at the Devil’s Bit in County Tipperary. Not to mention the incredible views of the rolling Tipperary countryside on such a fabulous day.

We know our legs would be sore after climbing all the way up there, so we’re sure this little fellow felt pretty tired after his hike. He looks proud of himself, though!

9. Walter at Portrush beach, Co. Antrim

The old English sheepdog Walter is setting standards high for future boyfriends. How cute does he look on Portrush Beach, County Antrim, holding a heart-shaped balloon that reads ‘I love you’?

We woof you too Walter, and we hope you had a fun day out at the seaside!

Pippa the cocker spaniel looks so majestic as she looks out over Torc Mountain in Killarney National Park. The views of this part of Ireland are absolutely incredible, and we can tell Pippa is enjoying them!

According to her Instagram page, Pippa loves ‘bananas, going on adventures and stealing tea towels from the kitchen!’

We absolutely love this shot of poodle Darla at Carlingford Lough; she just couldn’t contain her excitement at seeing the lough for the first time. We get it, Darla; it’s stunning!

Carlingford Lough on a clear day will ensure visitors get incredible views both north and south of the border, so it’s a must-see if you’re visiting Ireland!

5. Duncan at Valentia Island, Co. Kerry

Duncan the Scottish terrier is enjoying the views of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way at Valentia Island, County Kerry. Valentia Island is one of Ireland’s most westerly points, so it’s no surprise it can get pretty windy there.

If only the skies in Ireland were always this blue so we could enjoy amazing views like this more often!

4. Mollie at Culdaff Beach, Co. Donegal

Bernese mountain dog Mollie has got that ‘Friday feeling’ as she enjoys her walk on the beach in Culdaff, County Donegal. That stance is so powerful—we can tell she’s ready to play!

Culdaff Beach is a beautiful and peaceful spot—a must-see on a sunny day.

How cool does Khaleesi, the short-haired border collie, look as she stands facing the waves at the Flaggy Shore in County Clare?

We think a walk on the beach when the sun is out is the best way to spend a day on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way!

1. Hollie at Slieve Donard, Co. Down

Springer Spaniel Hollie looks like she had a great day climbing Northern Ireland’s highest mountain, Slieve Donard in County Down. She definitely deserved a treat after that hike!

The views from the top of Slieve Donard are breathtaking on a clear day, but who would have thought little Hollie would have made them even better?
