WATCH: Can you spot Father Ted's house? Drone footage shows breath-taking beauty of west coast Newsdesk Newsdesk

Stunning aerial footage of Ireland's west coast on a sunny day captures just how beautiful the country can be.

The footage, sent to by filmmaker and drone enthusiast Kevin Smith, captures the beauty of Achill Island, the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Lahinch and the Burren amongst other locations.

The drone even gets up close to the iconic house from Father Ted.

Mr Smith, a native of Westport, grew up taking part in outdoor activities like surfing and hiking - so was keen to film the area's natural beauty when the chance came about.

"I always enjoyed filming the west coast so when the availability of drones came, I couldn't wait to use them," he said.

"I have just finished a two-year documentary on my brother Fergal Smith, who is a professional surfer and past Irish champion."

The drone fan even managed to get some shots of his brother hitting the waves into his video.
