  • We spent all our holidays here as kids. It's a magical place. The photo below is of captain Boycott's house. I took it in August so don't bank on getting good weather, Ireland is an Island in the North East Atlantic, the weather is very changeable but that's part of the reason the country is so beautiful.
  • Amazing views. Was very lucky to have incredibly good weather. All round beautiful.
