Gougane Barra is where the River Lee starts. The name came from St Finbarr and there are the ruins of an ancient monastery there, as well as a tiny, more modern church.
It’s a place I like to go to any time of year because there are different hikes and walks in the area.
This time last year we went to Riga and were very pleasantly surprised at what a lovely city it is. We were lucky to have perfect autumn weather with lots of sunshine, which made the trees look amazing. It also left us with spectacular sunsets like this one.
Have a lovely week🙂
Close to home today. Blackrock Castle is a place I love to walk around because it’s close to the water (and has a really nice cafe and my dream house is nearby ;-))
Have a lovely weekend!
One of my favourite flowers….
Staying in Ireland today, but not near home. Trinity College is Ireland’s oldest university. It’s home to the Book of Kells and an amazing library, holding the original copy of the declaration of independence.
As well as all this history, it is right in the centre of the city and is really nice to walk through, especially in autumn when the trees are so pretty.
Before the recession hit I had my first and only trip to Greece. I went to Crete and had a great time walking around little farms with olive trees, relaxing on the beach and, of course, enjoying lovely food!
I think this sums up Greece-the colours, the sea, the sky, the little church…
The Burren in Co Clare is a karst landscape of limestone rock. I have only really been here once, although I’ve driven through the area many times.
There are many different hiking trails there, mixed with little colourful villages.
Have a lovely weekend🙂
