Trip Report A Trip Report in Pictures - Ireland, E to W, S to N

Jump to last reply

I'm trying something new...posting pictures with captions of my trip from June 2014. I'll to try to post them in individual albums on Shutterfly with the main events listed as an outline. I haven't done this before so please bear with me if it doesn't work as intended at first and please let me know if you can't access the pictures.

Here's the written report if anyone wants to refer to it for more information:

In brief, we went west from Dublin to Doolin where we visited the Cliffs of Moher both by walking along the upper trails and by boat, and Inisheer, the smallest of the Aran Islands. From there, Bunratty Castle, the Burren, Dunguaire Castle, and Galway. Next we travelled south to Adare and Killarney, our base for 3 days. We went on the Gap of Dunloe tour by boat and jaunting cart, then I took a boat to Skellig Michael and climbed the 600 steps to the secluded monastery, we drove the Connor Pass to Dingle, and toured Killarney National Park seeing Ross Castle, Torc Waterfall and Ladies View. Next east to Dungarvin and Waterford, then back north to Kilkenny Castle and St. Candice's Round Tower, and up to central Ireland and the National Stud and Japanese Gardens. For the last weekend, we entered Northern Ireland (UK) to visit the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, Giant's Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, Dunluce Castle and finally did our own version of a Game of Thrones tour. I will post the highlights from each here.

I hope this is successful and that you enjoy!
