Wild Atlantic B&W.

Guinness is black and cream...
this is as close as I could get.

And speaking of the aforementioned beverage.
This is as much a part of the Irish landscape as the landscape

What goes well with Guinness?

There are a lot of stone buildings.
And these iron balcony railing were a feature in Dublin

It has been MANY years since I found one of these in a hotel room.
In fact the last place I discovered one was at a lodge on the Chobe River

Friday Market day in Dingle

One of the Dingle locals

A wall in Dingle

In a side-burn competition,

Harry Secombe is ALIVE
and I found him at the Roadside Tavern in Lisdoornvarna.

The book seller at the Blasket Center.
He ducked behind the counter for the rest of our visit.

One of the Chinese journalists on the tour with me.
I thought I take lots of pictures.
But compared to this fellow, I am an amateur.

The only form of transport I did not use on the trip

And there was Irish music aplenty...

This family was trying to have a photograph at the top of Connor Pass

"Captain, my Captain"...
On the ferry to Scattery Island

We got a lesson in how to play the Bodhran at the Burren Smokehouse

Wild horses on the Cliffs of Moher.
I was on the lookout for goats,
but these we the alternative.
And as the saying goes:
"Wild horses could easily drag me back again"!
