10 Photos from the Island of Ireland

Posted in: Photos, Top Ten

It seems somewhat politically insensitive (or perhaps merely uninformed) to lump all my photos from our Ireland trip together, especially in light of last Monday’s post. I wondered if I should split them up into two posts – 10 photos from our trip to Northern Ireland, and 10 photos from our trip to the Republic.

But there is no border between the two places; we drove seamlessly from Northern Ireland to the Republic, and back again. The countryside remained lovely, the people continued to be friendly, and glasses of Guinness flowed freely on either side.

And so, because our similiarities in this world should always triumph over our differences, I’ve mashed all my photos together in one post. (Also, I was feeling kind of lazy.)

  1. Most covered lattice, Castle Leslie Estate, Republic of Ireland.

    You lichen? GET IT? LICHEN? HA.

  2. Caution: Horses sign, Castle Leslie Estate.

    I wanted to add little fangs to the silhouette and change it to say “Caution: VAMPIRE HORSES” but Rand mentioned some nonsense about defacing property or something, so I didn’t.

  3. “I have Clamidia” post-it Note, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

    On the plus side, it’s great to inform future and past partners when you discover you have an STD. However, you may want to consider a different medium than a Post-It note.

  4. Giant’s Causeway columns, Northern Ireland.

    And a rare spot of sun.

  5. Ginormous mirror on the ground, Dublin.

  6. Dried ivy, brick building, blue sky, Dublin.

  7. Rand gets contemplative at the Peace Wall, Belfast.

    He wasn’t sure what to write.

  8. Mixed messages, Dublin.

    OH GOD WHICH IS IT?!

  9. Hillside near Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland.

    The beautiful spoils of our harrowing drive.

  10. Obligatory photo of the two of us, Guinness Brewery, Dublin.

  • Great photos. Ireland is a beautiful place, looks like you were able to see a lot of it!

  • I thought I was going to be lazy too and do one post about our trip to Ireland in May. Instead, it’s flowing in widely spaced installments. If you’re so inclined,” Ireland Road Trip – Part II (Kinsale)” is on my blog. And now, I have to pause and freak out about the U.S. elections.

  • So… what did Rand write?! Love the Dublin mirror pic x

  • Nice photos. I was there for two days in October but was too jet lagged to do much with my camera. I guess this is what I missed.

  • Rachel

    Wait, you’re going to devote an entire post to the Guinness factory some day, right? Right?!

    • Everywhereist

      Yes, yes, I will. 🙂

  • Great photos! My favorite is of the street art reflected in the water in Dublin.

  • Anisa

    Great pics of a great place.
    Also, I believe chlamydia is spelled wrong on the post it.

  • Darragh

    Great photos, I’m from Derry in Ireland, and currently planning my own tour of Ireland and your tips have been very helpful.

    P.S. Seperating the North and South would have been incredibly offensive to myself and other Irish people.

  • What, no makeout photo? Disappointing!

    My favorite is the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge in Northern Ireland–I’ve never been there despite formerly dating a Belfast boy, but am going to have to put it on my must-visit when I’m back in Narn Ireland for work next May.

  • Love your pictures! We were in Ireland last year but didn’t make it to Northern Ireland. I took a bunch of photos of the signage in Ireland and Scotland. as well. Their choice of wording is wonderful!

  • Went to visit Mandova today, where a rich nobleman built a palace for his mistress. This room was where he took guests before the orgies. This revelation caught me by surprise, but Rand noted that there wasn't a lot else for rich people to do in the 16th century. It was mostly food and orgies.
