The world’s most Instagrammed places, and Ireland is included

Sure, what’s the point in going somewhere unless everyone knows you went there… right?

A number of Irish destinations have made the list of the most Instagrammed places in the world, although none of them have troubled the top of the table for the moment.

Disneyland, the Eiffel Tower, Walt Disney World, South Beach (Florida) and the Berlin Wall are the top five most Instagrammed places in the world according to research from Travelbird.

Online travel specialists TravelBird compiled a list of the 470 most popular attractions in the world based on the tags from photos people upload.

The results provided an in-depth view in the most popular destinations in Ireland for both Irish people and for the many, many tourists who visit the Emerald Isle each year.

So which Irish destination is the most popular? The Cliffs of Moher? Trinity College?
