Sea, sun and Ireland

Yes, I know, it's hard to believe, but it is in Ireland ! "The sea is just a wetter version of the sky" would say Regina Spektor, but here this is not true, most of the time. This is the reason why I took this picture, to prove that we can have a beautiful weather in Ireland as well... sometimes.

Horses in Ireland are not very present, excepted in the Connemara National Park. However, nobody can say that they are unhappy up here, in the green Ireland ! This pic has been taken in the Devil's Glen Village, in the County Wicklow.

The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher are the highest cliffs in Ireland. Situated in the County Clare, West Ireland, they are more than 200 metres high. When the weather is good, the view is stunning as you can see above ! What else could I say about the cliffs... oh yes : if you go there, don't hesitate to go through the sign "Private property, please don't go any further", you will find there the best views of the Cliffs !

Connemara National Park - Sheeps story

Small sheeps crossing roads in the Connemara National Park, so beautiful ! I have to say that there are pretty hard to shoot, because they are used to cars but not to people... so they don't move when the cars pass by, but they run away as soon as you get off of the car, clever !

Connemara National Park

The Connemara, I bet it rings a bell to everybody. This wonderful area is filled with lakes, hills, bays and the Irish language is still spoken. It's not rare to see some sheeps into the wild, crossing roads... The magic thing with this part of Ireland is that every part of it is different, the landscapes are amazing, the colors are splendides and the views are spectacular ! It's a real pleasure to drive through these roads, discovering all the treasures it has to offer. If you have the chance to go there, make sure you will go to the Sky Road, off Clifden. This road drives you to the west coast, with a unique view all the way long !

Grave stones

Graves stones in Ireland, here in Clonmacnoise, county Offaly, are pretty impressive and massive. Most of the time, they are decorated with sculptures and the celtic Cross on the top. Some of them date from the early centuries and have seen their beauty fading through the time, others are burying little by little in the ground, giving to the cimeteries their exceptionnal authenticity.

Located in the middle of Ireland on the Shannon side, Clonmacnoise is very known for its several churches and grave stones... in ruins. From the sixth century, this historic and religious site have seen so many wars, theft, and fires, that it is almost surpising that the is something left... even ruins. At that time, Clonmacnoise was famous for its religious instruction, with an impressive library. Pilgrims used to, and still use to walk until this monastery every year. The pope John Paul II came to Clonmacnoise during his journey throughout Ireland in 1979, gathering thousands of people.

The Custom House

The Custom House is an eighteenth-century building in Dublin which houses the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government. It was designed by James Gandon to act as the new custom house for Dublin Port. It has been completed in 1791.
As the port moved further downriver, the building's original use became obsolete, and is now used as the headquarters of local government in Dublin.
