Visual Ireland: From Dublin to Belfast & Giants Causeway in the North

0

The week started in Northern Ireland  with stunning coastal sunsets, a harrowing walk on a rope bridge, and the unique rock formations of Giants Causeway.  In addition, I took a Black Taxi tour around Belfast – an eye opening and disturbing look at the city’s history and how they are moving forward.  And of course while in Northern Ireland I had to have some Bushmills Whiskey while at the Bushmills Inn.  The perfect way to get warm from a chilly day outside – a roaring fire and whiskey!

The ‘blue lagoon’ in Ireland – beautiful dusk on the coast.

Carick-A-Rede Rope Bridge

The Carick-A-Rede Rope Bridge hanging 100 ft above the crashing sea – it was more than a little wobbly! Fishermen erected the bridge so they could check their salmon nets. The original bridge had only a single handrope!

Northern Ireland coast

Northern Ireland’s coastal landscapes are stunning and also colorful when the sun decides to shine! This was the path out to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Even if you wuss out and don’t go on the bridge dangling bove the cliffs, you still get these views!
