Photo: Ireland

Ireland, always dreamed of visiting one day, and this year I finally did! 7 days, well 6 to be telling the truth (it took us one day to get to Dublin, felt like flying to the end of the world) and 1.500 photographs, 20 videos. The path we took was something like this: Venice-Frankfurt-London-Dublin, then Belfast, Derry, Donegal, Sligo, Westport, Galway, Aran Islands (Inishmore), Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry, Killarney, Watervillage, Cork, Cahir, Cashel, Killkenny and back to Dublin airport. 7 different hotels, and only one of them had a ghost in the room ;) 35 people plus tour guide and a driver, a very pleasant bunch. As there is a lot of photographs, it took me some time to put something together, so here it is:

Since we missed two connected flights I had the opportunity of sitting by the window and viewing London as we landed (such a big city)
I loved that every night we spent in a different hotel. The hotel that impressed me the most was Jameson, but I don't remember in which town.
Molly Malone and a pub in Dublin, others are details from Belfast.
Belfast, the dock where Titanic and Olympic were made (when she left, she was fine). A very interesting walk.
Giant's Causeway, the audio guide you receive on entering here is really great.
Peace lines and monument for Bloody sunday
Mostly from Donegal.
Sligo, with W.B. Yeats grave
Monument dedicated to Great Famine
Kylemore Abbey

On Inishmore, one of Aran Islands, we rented bikes and biked across it.
Worm Hole, one of the most amazing things we saw.
Cliffs of Moher
Bunratty Village
Bunratty Castle
On the way through Ring of Kerry we also had the opportunity of listening to Irish pipes.
Lots of stories gather in such a short amount of time. It was worth it. And since I love music, here are a few Irish tunes as well:
Sláinte! ;)


  1. Excellent! As much time as I've spent in Ireland, and that's a lot, you make it feel as if I've missed most of it. I read once of a Swedish man living there who said "Ireland is a large country."

  2. And yet, your photos of Slovenia are even more spectacular.

    1. Yeah, I can't decide which one is more beautiful :)
