Postcard from Ireland: Horse on Inish Née, County Galway

Sending this shot taken during our Irish travels in 2010. We were staying in a lovely whitewashed cottage on the island of Inish Née, near Roundstone.  We were rewarded for rising early to walk the lane with some breathtaking pictures of the island, water, and mountains coming alive. Looking forward to trip number 14 in July….. So much more beauty to be seen!! Suzette – Cincinnati, Ohio The Irish Fireside “Postcards from...

Postcard from Ireland: The Causeway Coast

I loved the Northern coast line! It was beautiful from the small towns like Portrush, with it’s sandy beach and surfers. To the ruins of Dunluce Castle perched on a cliff. And the unique coastline of Giant’s Causeway. It’s hard to pick just one. I only spent one day in the area, but I’m sure could have spent several in this area.

Postcard from Ireland: Bee on the Aran Islands

This bitty bee photo-bombed my picture of the Aran Islands, and has been my pride and joy ever since! This was the most clear, beautiful day I could ever have hoped for. We felt so lucky to have a day like that in the middle of September (and so grateful for our timing, because the next day it was raining sideways). My husband and I walked up and down the Cliffs of Moher, loving the sun and the sea and the cattle not more than 20 feet...

Postcard from Ireland: Dingle, Co Kerry

I think the picture that most says “Ireland” to me is this one, taken in my favorite part of Ireland, the Dingle Peninsula. Forty shades of green, the distant sight of the blue Atlantic ocean, and black-and-white cows. Mountains, whitewashed houses, and rolling fields bordered by stone walls and hedgerows. Bright sunlight on everything, but the grey clouds hint of the rain we’ll soon get – and will soon pass. That’s the Dingle...

Postcard from Ireland: The Wishing Tree – Killary Harbour, County Galway

This is a Wishing Tree in Killary Harbour in Galway’s Connemara that I stumbled across while touring the region. I just love the symbolism of these trees where people for centuries have been tying pieces of ribbons or some other small personal items as an offering to the local saint or goddess in the hope that their dreams and wishes, blessings or solace would be fulfilled. It is so moving to see the flashes of vibrant ribbons and...

Postcard from Ireland: Stepping on to the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

I snapped this photo just before I took my first step on the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge in Northern Ireland. I’m not a fan of heights, but it was a long walk from the visitor’s parking lot to the bridge, so I felt compelled to make the crossing. The return trip was actually scarier than the initial crossing because the bridge seemed to bounce more and the rocks below looked more jagged. Fortunately, the weather was great...
