Trekking Through Ireland: From Early Morning Views to Horse Carriage Rides


Ireland may have its fair share of rainy days but my trip was filled with sunshine, which is why I’ve decided to dedicate an entire photo post to the sunshine filled skies of the Irish countryside. The Ring of Kerry below was taken from the “Ladies’ View” of Kilarney National Park. From here you can see the Gap of Dunloe, Ross Castle and the Black Valley.

City Escape – one of Dublin’s most scenic parks. It’s perfect for a quick break from busy city life. This particular one is Iveagh Gardens and it’s located behind the more popular St. Stephens Green making it a true hidden gem.

Kilarney Close Up – This is one of many photographs I took during our nearly two hour walk through the park, led by a guide who literally knew every solitary detail about Ireland’s past, present and future (John of SouthWestWalks)

Finding my Secret Garden – I’m slightly obsessed with gardens so naturally, I had a field day walking through the Muckross House gardens and surrounding grounds before taking the indoor tour.

Riding into the sun – The sun kept shining during our horse carriage ride through Killarney National Park all the way to Ross Castle. It was the perfect end to a perfect day.

Lazy Afternoons – I can’t think of a better way to spend a lazy day than by taking a ride in one of these boats. It was very comforting to watch all the little children playing around the pond.

Morning Bears its Sleepy Head – I’m still in awe of my view from my Bed & Breakfast. Watching the sun rise over the coastal rocks and neighboring fields was pure magic and certainly unlike anything I’d seen before.

My Morning View – another shot of my morning view just minutes later after the sun had risen in the sky. It was by far the best backdrop I could have imagined.
