Ireland Travels

On Friday we picked up our car at the airport and drove to Glendlough, a very popular national park. This was the beginning of a bank holiday weekend, the first weekend in June, and a popular time for weddings…the perfect storm. We got the last room at Glendalough Hotel – two twin beds. This hotel is sort of like the Old Faithful Lodge of this part of Ireland. It was quite nice.

We arrived in time to take a hike up the valley to see the forest, the lakes, and the site of an ancient monestary. It was a wonderful afternoon and evening. The wedding went on without us. They partied until 4:00 am and then were at breakfast with us at 9 in the morning. Aah, to be young again!

Here are a few photos from Glendalough.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
