There's just a few places where the built environment flashes into view and actually enhances the landscape. Oulart Hill of the modern megalithic tomb is one.

Another is "The Tale of the Tongs" a creation of Travis Price III in collaboration with The Catholic University of America's School of Architecture and Planning. It consists of a glass house with open ends and surrounding glass pillars each with one of the six family names of the island.

There's an article about it at http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/15847956 B/list/An-Irish-Island-Gets-a-Most-Meaningful-Installation which also includes pictures of the installation at night and some irreverent comments. Apparently the place is lit at night. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1041/comment/17538/
