Across Éire

This was my second time in Ireland. First one was many years ago, in 2012 when I was doing my internship in London and Sara hers in Galway. Back then I haven’t seen too much of Ireland and this time I wanted to make it right. The trip was not as spontaneous as one could think. We were invited to the wedding of Jess&Barry and on this occasion visit some more or the island. First few days we spend in the lovely countryside close to Hacketstown. You never heard about it? Don’t worry, nobody did 😉 This was a very rural village, close enough to the venue place and cheap on top. After the wedding, we headed towards Cliffs of Moher which were exactly on the opposite side of the island. Driving on the left side of the road is quite a challenge, but because there is barely any traffic there, we got used to it quite fast. Cliffs were quite an adventure and after we drove to Bunratty for the wedding afterparty. We didn’t have too much time to spent in Bunratty, but we spent a lovely evening in the most typical Irish pub.  Next day we had to go to Galway which was quite some distance away. Galway was as I remembered, rainy and drunk. I also had some more time to take photos there, even in the evening. Following day we left for Dublin and unfortunately we were not able to visit the Guinness factory because it was already too late. Instead, we went for a walk in the city which was I think even better. Overall, the trip was a huge success both socially and photographically. The pity was that we were always in a hurry, no time to stop somewhere and contemplate nature. We also saw only maybe 10% of Ireland, and for sure I will have to go there once again to see some other parts of this beautiful island.
