For fans of romantic comedy, set the scene for the perfect Valentine's proposal by whisking your Valentine on a tour of magical Wicklow, including a visit to the set location from the Hollywood blockbuster, 'PS, I Love You'.

This picturesque tour takes in the stunning scenery of the Wicklow Mountains, Glendalough, and the Sally Gap, winding its way through the heather, greenery and glistening lakes to recapture the magic of the novel's cherished love story.

Or if marriage isn't on the cards, the Meeting of the Waters is another top romantic spot, according to Discover Ireland.

The Meeting of the Waters, where the Rivers Avonmore and Avonbeg meet, was immortalised almost 200 years ago by poet Thomas Moore when he stumbled upon this scenic spot in the Vale of Avoca.

After taking your Valentine for a walk by this picturesque beauty spot, drop by local Avoca for lunch with shopping at the infamous Avoca Handweavers for a Valentine's gift to mark the occasion.

And for the last-minute romantics out there, you are not alone, as 33pc of Valentine's cards sold each year are bought on February 13, at around 6.00pm.
