Ireland: An Almost Forgotten Picture Round Up


The water is cold:  The diving platform in Galway.

In the summer of 2013 we toured Ireland by car. It was first and only time visiting Ireland. As luck would have it, we were rewarded with excellent weather, for Ireland.

As we hadn’t been to Ireland, we traveled a standard tourist route, arriving by ferry in Dublin and then looping down the west coast. Overnight stops were made in Galway, Killarney, and Cork before we returned to Dublin to meet that ferry that would take us back to our temporary base in the UK.

Some of the pictures from the trip have been posted to Anotherheader but there are a few strays that got away. They’ve recently been rounded up. Best to post them now before they are lost forever.

Between the wind and the drizzle we were freezing but apparently there's still a market of ice cream.
