Yup - Glendalough and Clonmacnoise would hardly be out of place in that list, and Lough Hyne in County Cork is also pretty important

dublin city centre could have been if it had been properly looked after i fear it is far too late

glendalough is a good one
what about the burren, cliffs of moher or those beehive huts on the dingle peninsula.
our bogland is some of the last remaining in europe, we have god knows how many castles and stone age monuments (europes largest dolmen is in carlow) surely theres something there?

Blasket Islands have already been named as Ireland's next world heritage site. Good choice I think, but of course there should be others.
Rock of Cashel
Glendalough
College Green as home to the world's first purpose built parliament and home to Trinity (one of the world's oldest and most prestigious universities, which houses of houses the book of kells.)

seems they've got permission to build a 50 seater cafe with 15 toilets, too big or not, depends on how many people tey are going to let on the island at a time, seems the state have negotiated deal where this one guy will have the only licensce to run cafe and boats to the island, well he does own most of it, residents are objecting to the eu.

It mystifies me why the monastic ruins of Ireland, and particularly the round towers of Ireland, are not collectively a world heritage site. They represent a monastic tradition which preserved much of the old learning of Europe during the dark ages. The round tower is pretty unique to Ireland. And they are incredibly beautiful and atmospheric. They should have been first on the list for this country.

And, with appropriate restoration, the Georgian portion of Dublin deserves world heritage status both because its style is peculiar to Ireland and because it was aesthetically the high water mark of Georgian architecture. Properly cared for, it would be more beautiful than Georgian Edinburgh, Bath, and Bloomsbury in London.
