And one of the world’s top naturist destinations is……Ireland?

I’ve been sitting on this one for a week or so, while I IM’ed Fionnuala, an Irish naturist we profiled away back in Issue 4, I think (it’s late, I’m tired, and I’m off to bed, so I’ve neither the time or inclination to check! 🙂 )

Anyway, I read that one of the world’s potential top naturist destinations is -make that ‘could be’- Ireland.

Yes, yes, I know the Giant’s Causeway is in Northern Ireland and thus, strictly speaking, part of the United Kingdom…but it’s in Ireland, and there’s a reason for me asking Fionnuala to pose there, simply because it has a history of naturism, after a fashion.


Yep, Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy album sleeve (1973) was photographed in the same place.

Anyway, Ireland’s a beautiful country which I’ve visited on a few occasions, and it would be terrific to see it become -weather permitting- a naturist destination of choice, regardless of the fact that Irish law does not recognise naturism.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that Ireland remains the only country in Europe which does not have one single officially recognised naturist beach.


nb…and this post is the 600th post on the SLN site. I’ve been having a blast over the past two years of doing it, and look forward to the next two years and next 600 posts! 🙂
