Helene & Marc Visited Ireland June, 2005.
It was very green!
The Muckross house is a restored mansion within the Killarney National Forest.
Not a bad place to live.


This map shows the locations of the photos. We also visited SE Ireland, but did not find it as scenic.

There are also some other photos from Marc's field trip in Ireland and England.

The first thing we noticed as we left the airport was that everyone was driving on the wrong side of the street.

You might think that thatched roofs were everywhere, but it turns out these must have been constructed for tourists. They do look cool though.










It was cool and damp. Everything grows really well.

Flowers were everywhere.

The Gap of Dunloe, also in the Killarney National Forest, provides a feeling for the mist and lushness of the landscape.
