From Place To Space: Ireland

22 July 2012 0


I won’t start over again about the advantages of living in the middle of Europe. Weekend getaways are one easy thing to do and to enjoy. Some time ago I spent a prolonged weekend in Ireland. I combined a city trip to Dublin with the exploration of the beautiful Irish countryside. I blogged about my Dublin experience here, now it’s time to show you a little bit of the divine Irish countryside.

From Dublin I took a train and after a 30 minutes ride I arrived in what I would refer to my cliché imagination of Ireland – in real terms Dalkey and Killiney Hill Park. A rough and wild sea, a steady breeze, lush green hills, picturesque little seaside villages with century old houses and churches and an ever changing weather. Sunny, cloudy, showers, sunny again – and all this within one hour. 

Killiney Hill Park is a superb way to enjoy Ireland by foot. If you ever happen to travel to Dublin and long for a bit of the wild, green Ireland, go to Killiney Hill Park. You can wander the pathways through the leafy park, climb uphill and enjoy a spectacular view overlooking the coastline and the Irish Sea. The area is dotted with beautiful Georgian mansions and nowadays home to many internationally known celebrities. After you’ve walked off your feet, stop by in downtown Dalkey for a piece of yummy cake and a coffee in the adorable Country Bake bakery. Blissful memories! And now back to Monday!

    How lovely it must me (the middle of Europe living thing). Those pictures are dreamy (Irland has been on my list forever). The only places I can get to in a reasonable amount of time for a weekend get away is Montreal (2 hour drive), Toronto and Québec City (5 hour drive for both). I’m doing Cape cod in the US in two weeks (8 hour drive). New york is feasable (10 hour drive) but if I want to get there for a short time I prefer flying. I haven’t even seen half of my own country (it’s not called the second biggest country in the world for kicks……it’s ridiculously big).

    Hallo Igor,

    habe gerade Deinen Blog gefunden! Freue mich sehr! Deine Fotos von Irland sind sooo… schön! Du wirst lachen, aber Irland steht auch auf unserer Liste. Wollten eigentlich diesen Sommer nach Irland fahren, aber hatten uns dann kurzfristig umentschieden und waren an der Nordsee. 🙂

    Wünsche Dir noch eine schöne Woche.
    Liebe Grüße,
