The Lovely Donegal Castle

Donegal Castle is a 15th-century castle built by the O'Donnell clan.  It is located in the center of what is now Donegal town northwest Ireland.  My wife and I stopped here while driving up the western coast of Ireland.

The day we stopped no one else was visting.  It was like we owned the castle!  Just walking around by ourselves and soaking up the history.  Upstairs they have the story of the castle with some displays that show the castle at various times in the past.  It is interesting to see how the castle evolved and grew over time.

Until next time...

Dublin at Night Along the River

We recently spent some time in Ireland.  Our hotel was in the quay area of the city.  This shot was taken on North Quay street.  As we were strolling towards O'Connell street, the lights reflecting in the river just called out for us to take some photos.

I hope you enjoy the view as much as we did that night.

Until next time...

Western Irish Coast - Ring of Kerry

I took this photo while driving along the Ring of Kerry.  The scenery along the southern half of this ring is the most dramatic. My travel tip is to drive clockwise on the route.   We drove both directions and anti-clockwise seemed like the best route.  Also, the local tourism board encourages anti-clockwise driving to help with traffic flow as some parts of the drive are quite narrow.

There are plenty of places to pull off and enjoy the views.  Make sure to take advantage of the pull offs.
