This image taken from the lookout over Conor Pass on the Dingle Peninsula typifies the extraordinary beauty of Ireland.
I’ve been coming to Ireland now for the past fifteen years thanks in part to my beautiful Irish girl Jennifer, the engaging warmth of the Irish people and to the breathtaking beauty of the land.
So it was with a little trepidation that we sought to show off this amazing country to our dearest Australian friends; wanting them to fall in love with the land, the language and the people as I had.
For nearly three weeks we traveled the Wild Atlantic Way together, following Ireland’s western coastline from Kinsale in the south up into the northern wilds of Donegal.
For nearly three weeks together we experienced sunny days, amazing skies and gorgeous landscapes.
We were welcomed into people’s homes with true Irish hospitality. We enjoyed wonderful nights out with fantastic food, live music and the ‘craic’ as only the locals know how to enjoy.
I think we succeeded in our mission. Welcome to Ireland.
