New must-see attractions when visiting Ireland

We certainly don’t need a reason to visit Ireland. It’s enchanting, friendly and offers new delights around every corner. Speaking of new delights, here are several new attractions to see.
    We all know that Games of Thrones was shot in Ireland and the first official Game of Thrones Studio Tour just opened in Northern Ireland. This stunning new attraction is located at the acclaimed series’ original filming location of Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, County Down. 
   The interactive experience allows fans to explore a vast array of original sets, costumes, props and set pieces, with the aim of bringing visitors closer to the Seven Kingdoms than ever before. 
   Make sure to go to Ireland’s Ancient East Maze opened at Skypark, an exciting adventure park in Carlingford, County Louth. As well as having to find your way out of the maze, it will also take you on a whirlwind tour of some of the main attractions situated in Ireland’s Ancient East, including Glendalough, Blarney Castle and Brú na Bóinne.
   Suitable for all ages and abilities, the wooden maze is built from sustainable wood. Watch out, the escape route can be altered via movable gates so there are lots of different solutions.
   Meanwhile in the south of the island, Youghal in County Cork is now the home of Ireland’s longest seafront boardwalk. Opened last year, the boardwalk is wheelchair-friendly and provides a scenic link between Youghal town centre, a popular holiday destination for centuries, and Redbarn Beach, a breath-taking wide-open strand.
   Those who look to the heavens for inspiration will not want to miss Our Place in Space, a new immersive solar system sculpture trail set to open in Derry-Londonderry in April. The immersive sculpture trail will feature various sculptures, including scale models of the sun and each of the planets in our solar system. It will take you on a journey through the solar system without leaving the ground.
