  1. All so wonderful – and I recognized some of them as well from last spring! Wouldn’t mind a Guinness again…Almost impossible to pick favorites here! If I must, I think the tree growing in the ruins and the dog in the car and the window looking out to the sea and…no, I really cannot do this. A great gallery – thank you!

    • In the spring I was writing up parts of Ireland for a friend that was visiting this fall. This post was a chance to revisit some of my favourite places in Ireland, at least the posts about it – not quite the same as actually being there with a Guinness in hand though!
