To be in Ireland in the Spring..

Ah.. Donegal is basking in warm sun... blue, calm ocean.. the gorse is a golden glory, fragrant in the kind heat..lambs everywhere, and the sky is singing larks...The rhododendrons are starting to unfurl their purple riches... and all the hotels and restaurants are emerging like butterflies from their winter chyrsales.......

I went outside to see how they are doing here. They are just budding.

But SW Donegal is a different place. I'd quite like to be down at the pier in Teelin right now. I'm sure it looks great on a day like today.

Well, I won't get to Donegal this trip, but if you could get some of that weather a little more south to Limerick and Galway starting on the 28th, that would be fantastic.

Weather's been great throughout the country for the last few weeks - it feels like summer is here already! It's a little cloudier and cooler today in Dublin. Hope you get great weather for your visit.
