So I went to Ireland for 2 weeks. I was really looking forward to it. My friend Jen had moved to Dublin earlier in the year and seeing her + doing some exploring = a good idea.
I didn’t have any hard set plans, besides some already set hiking dates, but figured its a small country, with lots of history, and its easy to get around.
Instead I ended up with a wicked sinus infection that couch bound me (including antibiotics) for 7 days out of 14. Combine that with jet lag, fevers, and sleep deprivation, and let’s just say it was not a good scene. I literally saw Dingle, and Dublin, and nothing else but my gracious host’s couch.
Still I got some good shots of hiking the edge of Europe (it really was like the end of the world), which I’ll share below. Despite being so friggin’ sick for most of it, I am glad I got to do this hike and cliff walk.
However, first, here are some short noted things:
Decent into Slea Head
Cliff Walking near Ballydavid
River and marsh approaching Brandon
Pretty streets in Dingle
And the rest of my photos can be found on this flickr set.
Will I return to ireland? I’m not sure. I realize my time there was marred by sickness. Which makes me very bias. But I am rather unsatisfied with my experience upon coming home (didn’t get to go to Tara, Wicklow, or The Causeway, hardly went out in the evenings). So we’ll see.
