Ireland

Maurice and I are doing a home exchange in Ireland. I was here many years ago and Maurice has never been so we are excited to be here. We are disappointed in our house here. Not only is it very isolated adding a good thrifty minutes to any trip, it is a very plain place with just the basic furniture and very little decoration. There is a TV but no reception to the English stations I was looking forward to and, worst of all, NO wifi! We were told we could get wifi at nearby bars and restaurants which we had to do. Very little reception for our phone either. See, these are the things you should research before you go to a place. Live and learn-but, hey, we are in Ireland so there is a silver lining.

We drove around the Ring of Kerry of course. It was lovely. This is a photo of the Tora waterfall found along the way.

Pretty views of lakes there.

On another peninsula we visited the village of Dingle full of shops like this.

Sheep with lambs were often seen.

Stunning cliffs, this one off Brandon Point where I almost got blown off my feet.

  1. Everything looks so pretty and green. A large part of my heritage is Ireland but I’ve never been there. The Dingle Bookshop looks charming. (BTW, You’re always welcome back here. Just say the word.)

  2. I lived in Ireland for a year in Dublin and Wicklow. I’d love to go back some day. Too bad about the house location but I hope you will still enjoy being there. Dingle is fun and you are in Kerry which is lovely to explore. Fun to see your trip!
