Ireland’s third most visited place (after the Guinness Storehouse and the zoo), but probably the most iconic, is the Cliffs of Moher.
I’ve never managed to see them in the sun, but we did avoid rain-a massive plus! We saw a couple getting married there this time and all I could think was that she was one brave bride to get married outdoors in the wind and almost rain! Stunning location for a wedding though.
Next stop, Canada!
When you need to get away, you might as well get away to a totally different landscape.
The Burren, Co Clare, a karst limestone national park. It’s a bit different from the green or the sea!
One of my favourite beaches here is Inchydoney outside Clonakilty in Cork. There are two beaches or sometimes three depending on the tide.
The beach is always busy and there’re always people in the water. Plus the hotel has lovely food after a long walk!
Today is a pretty murky day here and it reminded me of a pretty murky day we had driving through the south island of New Zealand. Even through the drizzle the trees looked so pretty.
On the road somewhere between Christchurch and Wanaka.
Still no snow this year and doesn’t look as if there will be, so here’s one from a couple of years ago.
Cashel, Co Tipperary
Winter is here. It’s cold, but lovely and sunny. Some places have had the first snow already. Luckily here in Cork we don’t get a whole lot of snow because I really can’t handle driving in it!
It was winter when we visited New Zealand, so there was plenty of snow around. We had lessons in putting on snow chains, but we didn’t have to use them-I was too chicken to drive in the mountains! I did like looking at them and taking photos though!
Te Anau, sunset.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo from the Ring of Kerry which was taken coming into Killarney from Kenmare. As you continue along that road, you end up here at Muckross Lake.
I have seen many lovely sunsets here, but I thought I’d go with a day-time view today!
