A wonderful rainbow accents this view
We did not find a pot of gold though.
The upper lake
This lake stand high in the mountains in Killarney National Park
The sun glows on this landscape
Rain and shine
Raging river winding next to a town
Driving along the Ring of Kerry.
A lone bird flies over this wondrous view along the Ring of Kerry.
Although not the greatest beach day
All similar but each one unique.
The land stretches into the ocean
Ireland's rocky shores are battered by the Atlantic.
Vast green fields
The sun poking out over the clouds, illuminating the landscape below.
Beautiful rolling green fields.
A Varied Landscape
The landscape in Ireland is extremely diverse, ranging from green fields, to rocky hills and cliffs, to beautiful sandy beaches and blue waters. Even the weather is just as varied.
Taking a moment to appreciate the view
It was windy, you can tell by my hair.
Golden light over green fields
I'd gladly live in one of these houses.
Cliff side near Waterville, IE
Old ruin overlooking the sea
A lonesome dirt road
A farm house
Skellig Michael can be seen in the distance
Rolling green fields give way to cliffside
Blues and Greens

The Cliffs of Kerry
Ireland's most spectacular view.
The golden hour at the cliffs
My wife overlooking the cliffs
The sea batters the rocks and cliffside
The clash of the ocean against the rocky Kerry cliffs makes for a quite the spectacle.

Fresh snow on the mountain
On our drive to Blarney, many of the mountains that morning were given a fresh coat of snow
From the top of Blarney Castle
Blarney Castle from the gardens
At the center of the large tower is where the Blarney Stone is located, said to bring the Gift of Gab to all those who make the pilgrimage to kiss the stone.
It was said that if you travelled backwards down these stairs with your eyes closed that you would be granted a wish. Not sure if my wife's came true!
The clouds cleared when we arrived at Blarney Castle
Fields, Hills and Mountains
The warmth in the foreground contrasts to the snow covered hill in the distance.
Views on the road to Dublin
The fresh snow on the tall hills and mountains made for a fantastic ride to our last stop on our tour; Dublin.
A view over the River Liffey
This river runs through Dublin and splits the city in half.
A view from the middle of Trinity College and the Campanile.
The local superstition is that any student who passes beneath the campanile when the bells toll will fail their exams. Some never pass under it until they finish their time at Trinity College.
Old and Beautiful
The fine intricacies in the stonework make this a must see place when visiting Dublin.
The Old Library
The Library at Trinity College just after the book of Kells exhibit.
