  1. Your title had it right. Loved so many of these but the B&W trees stood out – so mysterious. You’ve spent so much time gathering these images. Much appreciated.

    • Thanks Elaine! The B&W trees (the Dark Hedges) actually featured an episode of the Game of Thrones tv series. I wouldn’t like to count how many hours it took to capture all these photos, but I think it was worth it.

  2. These pictures really are gorgeous – and do their job (they make you fall in love with Ireland! I want to go right now….)

    • Thanks Sarah – delighted to hear that you enjoyed them!

  3. I heard Ireland can be absolutely beautiful if the weather is on your side. And it seems you enjoyed some wonderful weather. Great pictures.

    • Thanks Anda! The weather can be a little unpredictable. Or wet and predictable!! Still a beautiful country either way!

  4. What beautiful photos of ireland

  5. Wow I am speechless, I want to visit all of these places one day!

  6. i live close to Mahon Falls ( no. 13)
    Correct location is Waterford
    Good collection of pix you’ve covered all corners

    • Right you are Pat – updated now. Delighted to hear you liked the photos.

  7. Hi! I’m going to be spending almost a week in Dublin, and want to take a daytrip to Belfast. Any tips/recommendations???

    Thanks!

    • Hey Nicole! How about the Black Cab tour of the areas affected by the Troubles and the Titanic? If you can stretch the trip, the North Antrim Coast is fab, we love the Giant’s Causeway and the Rope bridge – the scenery is spectacular! Hope you have an amazing time! x

  8. Not that I needed 39 more reasons to love Ireland but I did enjoy them. 😉

    • Thanks Elaine! We have a lot of Ireland love too!

  9. Both Ashford Castke & Kylemore Abbey are located in Galway not Mayo.

    • Thank for the info Ronan. Will update for Kylemore, should have known better! For Ashford, they’re listed as Cong, Co Mayo :)
