Ireland Flag Photos from a vacation in Ireland May, 2006. I think I have these in the right order...

Limerick Flew into Shannon, on the SW coast and rented a tiny car. Limerick was the first stop. The province, Munster, had just won a Rugby match against France, so things were pretty crazy still, with people celebrating.

Adare - Tralee Adare and Tralee.

Ring of Kerry Ring of Kerry. Didn't get to see all of it, the weather was not cooperating these first few days.

Kerry Bog Village Kerry Bog Village. A peek at the way many Irish used to live.

Killarney Killarney. Cute little towns and country-side, if a bit touristy.

Kenmare Kenmare. Traditional Irish music and dancing, similar to square dancing.

Cork - Blarney Cork and Blarney Castle. No, I didn't kiss the Blarney Stone!

Midleton - Dungarvan Midleton and Dungarvan. The Jameson tour was interesting, even if I don't like Irish whiskey.

Waterford - Tramore Waterford and Tramore. There were few places to stay in Waterford, so found a B&B in the seaside town of Tramore, nearby. The Waterford crystal factory tour was worth the stop.

Rock of Cashel Rock of Cashel.

Kilkenny Kilkenny. The castle here is in very good shape and the interior has been restored to the Victorian era. No pictures were allowed inside, though...

Dublin Dublin. A very cool city and one of my favorite stops.

Belfast Belfast. Can't much recommend visiting the wartorn cities of Northern Ireland. Hope their progress continues. Many of their famous murals were quite good.

Giants Causeway Giant's Causeway. The beauty here makes Northern Ireland worth the trip. Wow.

Derry - Donegal Derry and Donegal. Derry, aka Londonderry, is the site of the Bloody Sunday memorial. The police here drive armored cars - yikes!

Aran Islands Aran Islands. A short ferry ride to this small island.

Cliffs of Moher Cliffs of Moher. I was afraid I was going to run out of time and miss this. Glad I didn't.

Galway Galway. The terrain in NW Ireland is very rugged. No wonder they raise sheep here - nothing else could thrive.
