Wow! Those makes me want to go!

(It also makes me want to put a Winter Solstice room in my house. COOL!)

Thanks, y'all. I loved the whole trip and would do it all again, just the same. It was a guided bus tour put together by a local travel agent for our local Irish pub, advertised as a "pub tour." So we didn't have to drive or know our way around, just get on the bus and ride. We'd stop at places, and Paddy Martin, our driver and tour guide, would say something like, "Be back at the bus at two-turdy." (Irish for 2:30. heart Flew from Chicago to Shannon, two nights in Galway, two nights in Killarney, two nights in Kinsale, and two nights in Dublin. We Barretts opted out of the city tour of Dublin and arranged our own transportation to Knowth and Newgrange to the 5000-year-old burial mounds.

Go for the solstice room!

Here are some pics from Cavan, Ireland, in a forest park called Dun na Ri, been coming here since I was small, it's so gorgeous.





And these two are from Glendalough, in Wicklow. Just as beautiful, I think.





That lake is amazing, but sooo freezing all the time. It's impossible to get in unfortunately. My dog loves it though.

Surprisingly none of these ones are in Ireland

These two are in Sorrento, Italy, we were there in May this year





And this one is in Tenerife, off Spain. Well...nearer to Africa, but it's a Spanish Island.

Go for the solstice room!
Kinsale and Killarney are gorgeous!! Used to go to Killarney every summer
Newgrange is pretty amazing too, but wouldn't want to get stuck in that little passage way! Bit of a squeeze!
Glad you enjoyed your trip

Beautiful pix, Wild_Honey. We didn't go to Glendalough, but it looks very similar to Lough Corrib at Kylemore Abbey. I just wish we'd had more time!

Yeah it is pretty similar, as long as you get to see one It's hard to fit everything in. Glad you had fun though.

It is, I only live a few miles away and it still takes my breath away every time I go there.
