Hard to believe it's been a year since we visited Ireland. What a fine country! Every person you passed had a greeting and a nice word for you. Most of them had a story they wanted to share. The countryside is lovely: verdant green hills with pleasant hamlets nestled in the dells, bucolic pastures dotted with sheep. Dazzling sweeps of cliffs along the coast, with gorgeous sand beaches tucked in below.
We spent the last two months of our European adventure in the Republic of Ireland, half in Wexford in the Ancient East, and half on Valentia Island along the Wild Atlantic Way. In the process, we fell in love with the country and the people. If you'd like to see what we did, the pictures are here for the Ancient East, here for the Wild Atlantic Way, and here for our last few days in Dublin. Slainte!
