A Few Favorite Irish Destinations on the New Google Street View
Last night, Google added Street View to their Ireland maps… that’s the project where they drive all over the world with a car/bike/snowmobile equipped with a camera that takes 360 pictures. Then, anyone in the world can point and click their way around the various routes.
Those of us who love Ireland are sure to spend a bit too much time exploring the Emerald Isle with this feature. The amazing thing is that you can basically take a tour of just about any Irish town… and they’ve got a lot of the remote roads included as well. The image quality is very good and once you get used to it, it’s not hard to Uue your mouse to click forward and backwards on the arrows of the route… or click and drag to rotate the image. You get a 360 degree view from any location in Street View!
Here are some views from Ireland… be sure to go to the bottom where I’ve got a special challenge that will offer a perfect way to waste some time on a Friday afternoon
Adare, County Limerick
Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary
Temple Bar, County Dublin
Sky Road, County Galway
Ashford Castle, County Mayo
Dunluce Castle, County Antrim
Healy Pass, Counties Cork & Kerry
The next link takes you to the Healy Pass on the Beara Peninsula. For a special challenge, I’d recommend you try “driving” down the extremely curvy road. Trust me, it’s fun… and a bit addictive!
