From futuristic cityscapes to war-torn battlegrounds, the floating camera angles of high-flying drones can make even the most bland of settings seem dramatic. But this footage of Ireland's west coast really is genuinely stunning.

Shot by Raymond Fogarty for Discover Island, the footage takes in nine Irish counties, with sights including the crashing waves of Doonamo Point in County Mayo to Charles Fort in County Cork. To paraphrase Alan Partridge, there's more to Ireland than Guinness and leprechauns. [YouTube]
