A visit to Ireland in 2016

My wife and I had our honeymoon in Ireland back in 1986. We went back to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in 2016, although we visited a different part of the country.

These photos are of the area quite close to the cottage we rented. I have plenty more from our trip if people would be interested in seeing them!

Our cottage for a week in County Mayo

The smoky chimney is thanks to the peat fire - it was April and not particularly warm! The stream ran down to what was virtually a private beach.

Clare island

Clare Island is in the mouth of Clew Bay. There are boats trips one can take to the island, although we didn't go.

No guessing where the wind comes from!

Croagh Patrick

This is a famous mountain in Irish folklore, and there is a well-worn footpath to the top, although we didn't take it!

Who says it always rains in Ireland?

What do you think?
